Consider vacation—vacation feels great. One has virtually no cares other than to pursue happiness. Upon return home or return to work the denseness of life returns too. Wouldn’t it be more fun if every day felt like vacation? It can and does when one feels free to pursue the life of one’s dreams because vacation itself is not what makes vacation great. Vacation is wonderful because it brings a sense of freedom.
When we develop compassion for ourselves and for others we become a sort of safe place…a human safe harbor where we and those around us have not just the liberty to pursue our dreams but the emotional liberty to do so.
