Re: Dharma Gems

  • Don’t burden others with your expectations. Understanding their limitations can inspire compassion instead of disappointment, ensuring beneficial and workable relationships. Remember that you have only a short time together. Be grateful for each day you share.

Re: What is the difference between being kind and compassionate?

In the latter case, the subjective feeling may or may not correspond with the expressions that are perceived as kind or compassionate.
