The Compassion Override

In history there are countless examples where twisted interpretations of beliefs lead to the justification, or even glorification, of murderous and sadistic tendencies. Such beliefs give a person an identity in opposition and superiority to other people, who can be condemned and abused from a position of personal righteousness.

In a conscious state of love and kindness, the causing of suffering could not be enacted, no matter what is thought or believed. True compassion always serves as a natural safety valve to any thought, for the question is always: are you alleviating suffering or causing it?
