inherent empathy

April 9, 2013

To be truly and wholly present even for the briefest moment is to be vulnerable, for we have arrived at the point where the obstacle that fear constructs between ourselves and others dissolves.

It is here that the heart is drawn out of hiding and the inherent sympathetic response called compassion arises.
