compassion

Tribute n˚5

To Kalief Browder. Your soul is a model of courage and integrity for my generation and the next ones.

To this permanent and exhausting trial going on within myself, perpetrated by Human kind and for Human kind.

To the only solution I found to peacefully keep on fighting and yet ease my embodied soul, Compassion.

I begged Mother Nature "why does Humanity destroy itself- through Human creations, like race, power, or money?"

Anger was the first to come to the stand. With a very calm voice, Anger explained: " I am needed. Without me, Hurt would never be acknowledged. I am the ultimate genesis for Change."

Wisdom stood up and asked: "What would Anger become without me?"

Tolerance tried to ease everyone: " Why can't we live and let live ?"

Acceptance, surprisingly, did not accept this argument : " Tolerance is a beggar for survival, there is no Love in Tolerance, we should aim for more".

Finally, Compassion came to the stand and said: "Maybe even better than Love, you could try me. I do not need Love or even Understanding. I just need HumilityHumility to see that if they steal, murder or rape, then you can too. Acknowledge your own limits, and you will become infinite.

Judgement, fed by Fear, separate, I will set you free."

"That I feed the hungry, forgive an insult, and love my enemy— these are great virtues. But what if I should discover that the poorest of the beggars and most impudent of offenders are all within me, and that I stand in need of the alms of my own kindness; that I myself am the enemy who must be loved— what then?" - C.G. Jung
There is no bigger change that the one within myself, there is no reparation without Compassion.
