I’d like to share with you my Sunday morning musings on the subject of compassionate communication, both what is said and left unsaid.

In the words of the Dalai Lama:

‘All individuals are equal in that every one of us instinctively seeks happiness and avoids suffering.’

‘I try to treat every person I meet like an old friend, and that gives me a real sensation of happiness.’

‘An authentic attitude of compassion doesn’t change, even faced with another person’s negative behavior.’

I know for myself the last quote can be a personal challenge, I shall make it the focus of my week.

What about you? What’s your personal challenge this week?
