Wholeheartingly embracing compassion for one suffering teleports us into God’s presence.

My story is one filled with pain and loneliness of not having anyone to be present with me.  The pain of a life full of emptiness.  This deficit has left a longing in my heart for the presence of God and others.  Compassion has filled the room, and I am also willing and able to be presence with myself.
Compassion, unlike pity, shame, or judgement, transforms the pain into comfort and peace by its tender invitation to draw near. 

A life paradox- that by turning in to embrace the suffering, instead of trying to avoid it or make it go away, one moves towards a peace that passes all understanding.
