Compassion is the gift
that enriches not only our own journey
but the journey of everyone
who crosses our path ...

Having compassion, for some is easy....and for some is extremely hard. And for all, it means different things.... or at least different people are compassionate about different things... Maybe this is where the "different strokes for different folks" comes into play.

Some of us are alot more soft hearted than others. And I am crazy enough to even cry, sometimes, at those stupid phone commercials. I feel I am a very compassionate person and also, a passionate person. When I am doing something, whether it is being at work, or doing dishes, or in a relationship, I tend to really throw myself into it. Give it 100% of myself. And yes, sometimes I tend to go overboard. Once, I went on a spiritual retreat and on that retreat I received a book/Bible marker. I loved it. It was colorful, made of the rainbow colors of satin ribbon and had little beads on the ends of the ribbons. I liked it so much that I went out, after my retreat, and bought a bunch of ribbon and made those markers for everyone I knew and then some. Took some to church to give away, took them to a Christian book store to be given away free.... I just went crazy with it. Maybe I just have an addictive personality... I dunno.

These days I don't have a real strong attitude about anything. I live a very predictable boring life. Work-home, work-home, work-home, work-home.... Its redundant. I just find it hard to get excited about anything. But I am still compassionate, and passionate. Just need to find something to stir up my passion.

Any ideas?

Of all the blogs your message hits home. An idea of what is normal. Abnormal by my experience is guessing. A strange word is guessing, to me it implies non-direction - no hope if you will - specifically in the religious definition. To me you sound normal, a desire for doing good avoiding evil, doing unto others, study nature, and the law of proportionality. What is in my heart?

SuzieQ.....I know just what you mean. But you aren't obsessive/compulsive. You are just a special person who needs to find something to feel "passionate" about in her heart. That's why you made all of the bookmarks to be given wanted to share the joy that that bookmark gave to you. And I'm sure you were successful. Here's hoping that you find that passion again soon!

Suz--I have found volunteer work very rewarding. How about a nursing home, a homeless shelter, anything that interests you.

I feel that you will find passion, because of your qualities... including your compassion. *smiling warmly*

...tomorrow 's a new day


Nothing is ever the same... when it comes to pleasures.

with a hint....the erotic senses will manifest into an abounding mess of flesh

the mind needs fulfillment of the body

if it feels good is good

I've done it again...*S*
