In the state of great compassion, you experience a natural state of peacefulness. This has nothing to do with euphoric pleasure, such as the absence of hassles. In this case, peace is a quality of vast space. Even though your schedule might be interrupted by occasional upheavals, you are not perturbed and you do not give in to them. Therefore, there is a quality of conquering and an experience of peace, of being at ease.
