Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life: Concern & Knowledge

With Rev. Cindy White

According to Karen Armstrong, the well-being of humanity is dependent upon jian ai: “concern for everybody.” True compassion acknowledges the absolute equality of all human beings, and a willingness to get to know other countries, cultures, and religious traditions. Let us make a safe space in our minds for those we may have called “other.”

Understanding different national, cultural, and religious traditions is no longer a luxury; it is now a necessity and must become a priority. ~ Karen Armstrong

Affirmation: With compassion for all, I am an instrument of Divine Love.
