GOOD FRIDAY MEDITATION
On interconnectedness,suffering,& compassion…
I had a pious thought, but I am not going to write it down . . . The thoughts that come to me are stupid. I feel knocked out, but I can think of no good reason to feel otherwise. There is not much use in making long speeches to Jesus about our pains, especially on Good Friday.
We are capable of suffering with our world, and that is the true meaning of compassion. It enables us to recognize our profound interconnectedness with all beings . . . it is a measure of your humanity and your maturity. It is a measure of your open heart, and as your heart breaks open there will be room for the world to heal.
