“Coming from compassion means coming from truth. How often do you rehearse in your mind what you are going to say to someone because you are justifying yourself, coming from ego, talking about how great you are, or how right you are? Every time you find yourself mentally rehearsing a situation (as all of you do, over and over) ask, “Can I come from a deeper level of truth?” You can always find one way in which to be more loving, understanding and compassionate.
Finding your deepest truth means looking within. It means not blaming other people, not playing the victim and not spending time feeling sorry for yourself. When you look more deeply at any situation, you can always see that you set it up for your growth. In any situation you feel you were a victim you always had an inkling of what was going on, and ignored opportunities to change things.”
Sanaya Roman, in “Personal Power through Awareness”
