Empathy

It seems to me that many of the troubled I experienced in my personal life over the past few weeks have more to do with a lack of empathy on my pay than any other single factor. And, whether it’s on Buddhist fora or at work out seems that an inability or unwillingness to try to see an issue from another person’s perspective is a cause of serious strife and division. Frankly, I don’t even uvetta how I’ve works be able to cultivate the brahma viharas without it.

May I strive to understand others on their own terms and may I cultivate a boundless heart today and every day to follow. Happy uposatha!

  1. Hear, hear. I’ve had some conflict recently and it’s been so hard to see where the other is coming from. I’m trying to give myself some compassion too.
