Watercolor by Lyn Mason, June 2005
Defined by the Artist: Implicit to compassion is the deep understanding that we are all one human race, with no hierarchy of worthiness. We are all God's children, deserving of our divine inheritance of peace, love and joy. Compassion is an evolved form of love that begins with the birth of self-acceptance. The heart that can open enough to embrace one's own pain and darkness can then breed compassion for others. Compassion is the God-given tool of the human heart that has the power to heal the world and create heaven on earth.
