Compassion is Being What You Are

Book coverWith genuine love and compassion, you just be what you are. If you can be what you are, external situations will become as they are, automatically. Then you can communicate directly and accurately. This is a balanced way of openness and communication, which automatically allows tremendous space, room for creative development, space in which to dance and exchange. The fundamental characteristic of true compassion is pure and fearless openness without territorial limitations.

From “Prajna and Compassion” in Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism by Chögyam Trungpa, pages 249-250
