In the spiritual journey, the compass unfailingly points towards compassion. This spiritual compass is the equivalent of the satellite Ground Position System that pilots and ship captains use to discover their exact location.
Inscribe this single word on your heart – ‘compassion’. Whenever you are confused, keep heading in the direction that leads toward deepening your love and care for all living beings, including yourself, and you will never stray far from the path to fulfillment.
– Sam Keen
