I got to realize that COMPASSION is LOVE in action, or expression of love. And Compassion is the very core nature of God. He is always full of compassion, the most compassionate God He is. So it’s also a nature and sign of a person who is closer or nearer to God. Because when we get closer to Him, we get transformed in His presence as we absorb His qualities, nature and reflections.
This compassion is such a unique, powerful n heart melting experience its hard to explain, only can be felt those who have experienced it. Until we have not reached this state we are still very immature and we don’t know God really.
Because God is love Himself and His love ever flows from His heart and sustains us, sustains the whole world , and He always stares us with His eyes full of compassion. His heart melts in compassion when He sees His creation.
When we reach this matured stage and this compassion gets hold of our heart ,mind and spirit, we won’t be careless for other’s needs, we won’t judge others, we won’t keep any hurt, bitterness or grudge even if others have done or do the worst to us, we won’t think or speak ill of others at any cost.
We will forgive, we will love endlessly without limit, even when we are aware of others crooked, fragile nature n their failure to understand our love, sympathy and care. .!
But irrespective of their meanness and inability, irrespective of their no change, we love them still anyways and always have forgiveness for them..even if we are harmed and hurt.
Cause Love n Forgiveness goes hand in hand. .and we see this in compassion.
When we have compassion, we have the heart of God. We see like Him, think like Him, love like Him, forgive like Him, accept like Him..cause our love/ compassion for others will be greater than their hatred, malice or meanness for us…and we will realize as God forgives us, loves us and accepts us ,we should also forgive and love like that. .and it happens naturally without effort or force. We will be able to see others and this world from very higher perspective than common, normal perspective, from God’s perspective.
Until we haven’t got that compassion, we can’t really forgive or love others the way we should, the way God really intends us to do.
