Compassion is an attitude of living. We can train and practice compassion whenever we remember. When we see someone limping, take in their hip or leg pain as you breathe in. As you breathe out, send them a healthy young hip and leg. When you hear a dog cry after being hit, breathe in the dog’s pain, and breathe out a youthful healthy body.

When you have an opportunity to physically help someone who is suffering, do it.
