Easily compassion comes with people we know
Because we are more familiar with who they are.
Understanding and clarity we have more of.
Offering someone comfort expresses our love
When the person we cherish feels not up to par.
It is the healthy and natural way to go.
With those who we don’t know, it becomes difficult
To get close to the feeling that they hold inside.
People are their own business. They have sovereignty
Over their lives – no others. This happens to be
Not the best attitude. With the heart open wide
Many blessings returning may be the result.
People have belief systems quite solid and strong
In order to break through them one must understand
Exactly where they’re coming from deep in their heart.
The expanding of consciousness is a fine art
For the one who is seeking an outlook more grand
Than the black and white illusion of right and wrong.
People work only with what is in their toolbox.
As valid as yours is their idea is too.
A degree of acceptance of that is just fine.
To achieve the expansion one cannot decline
The key to understanding adverse points of view.
Human nature remains a divine paradox.
