Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life: Little Knowing & Speaking

With Rev. Cindy White

According to Karen Armstrong, it is only when we question our most fundamental beliefs that we know how little we know. And, she posits, we often speak to each other with aggression rather than compassion. In the compassionate life, we know how little we know and we are willing to speak from the heart.

Religion is at its best when it helps us to ask questions and holds us in a state of wonder…. We can never understand the transcendence we call God, Nirvana, Brahman, or Dao. ~ Karen Armstrong

Affirmation: As a living, loving expression of God, I live in the Mystery.
