Compassion is bringing our deepest truth into our actions, no matter how much the world seems to resist, because that is ultimately what we have to give to this world and one another.
-Ram Dass

From "Nothing Left Unsaid," by Carol Orsborn:

You have only one sacred duty:

to make your spirit available to others.

You do this by sharing what you already are

in this and every moment.

If you are loving, you share your loving.

If you are suffering, you share your suffering.

If you are healing, you share your healing.

Why waste precious energy arguing with God about

what it is that is yours to share right now,

worrying how your broken bit could possibly be of use.

Trust that however unlikely it may seem,

without your piece,

the universe would be incomplete.
