more from Pema Chodron

In cultivating compassion we draw from the wholeness of our experience - our suffering, our empathy, as well as our cruelty and terror. It has to be that way. Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between two equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others.

--Pema Chodron
