Blocks to Compassion

You and I are deeply habituated to seeing everything that happens to us as

either good or bad. We are always passing judgment.

One of the points I was trying to make last week was that what we attend to,

what we pay attention to becomes our reality.

We take it for granted that the way we see things is how they are. We rarely

question this opinion.

We assign qualities to things and people without realizing that our mind

imposes these opinions on things and people. We have a tendency to divide the

world between what is desirable and what isn't. We assign permanence to things

and are upset when that proves not to be the case.
