#Idea – Karuṇā / 07.01.21

Our individual circles of compassion are rather small.

We care, perhaps, for (most of) our family, and our friends
Not so much for others outside of that circle
And not at all for those we call our enemies.

Perhaps,
If we worked to cultivate wider circles of compassion
(…and how far is possible here?)
Much of the suffering could be avoided.
