Favorite Quote #3 – Compassion

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded.

Elephant and woman

It’s a relationship between equals.

Only when we know our own darkness well, can we be present with the darkness of others.

Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.

~ Pema Chodron
