Tender and compassionate!

“There never was any heart truly great and generous that was not also tender and compassionate.”


~Robert Frost
My two cents: Our purpose on this planet is to be happy, Matthew Ricard expounds wholeheartedly.


That is not chasing pleasure, avoiding the awkward or accumulating toys, status and power.


It has to do more with gratitude and giving, kind of like sending and receiving compassion each hour of the day.


Include difficult people, enemies and those who drive us nuts.


Only look down on another if you are giving a hand up.
