Because compassion is being confused with an emotional response, rather than a shift in relationship and view.
"...if you think about how many hours, months and years of your life you've spent looking at things, being fascinated by things that have now passed away, then how wonderful to spend even five minutes looking into the nature of your own mind."
this rings true ...but i can't fully get it...and yet this..
do you mean like compassion depends on how we actually view other sentients and interact with them....rather than a shift in relationship and view.
thats what i got any way...it's beautiful..never heard it this way...
pretty deep stuff with so little words.
