In spiritual circles, it is common for people to state that we should “come from compassion”. Whilst compassion is a high vibrational state, actually few really know how to practise it. The way that many people purport to practise it actually takes them a few notches down in the spiritual evolutionary ladder.
If we’re talking about true compassion, yes, coming from compassion is the way to go. But most people misuse it, to the detriment of their own wellbeing.
There comes a point in our spiritual growth when whenever we see someone behaving badly, our first inclination may be to say, “Oh, but we must have compassion.” As a result, we may tolerate bad behaviours when others treat us badly or are abusive towards us.
