The aim and the fruit of generosity and compassion are two fold. We give to help and to free others; and we give to help and to free ourselves. This is the fullness, the seamless circle of compassionate generosity.
Can we relinquish our preference of picking and choosing? Can we be with phenomena…whatever it is, just as it is? This is our practice. The truth is lying in wait to be seen and known right in this moment.
