Compassion is useful
Once you realize that compassion is useful, that it is something really worthwhile, you immediately develop a willingness to cultivate it.
In our modern lives one thing that we fail to value so often is compassion which is one of the greatest things that we can show in life.
Genuine compassion is based not on our own projections and expectations, but rather on the rights of the other: irrespective of whether another person is a close friend or an enemy, as long as that person wishes for peace and happiness and wishes to overcome suffering, then on that basis we develop a genuine concern for his or her problems. This is genuine compassion.
