Humble Compassion

There is compassion that feeds ego and there is compassion that humbles it. The compassion that feeds the ego is a sense of pity for those who stand beneath you. The compassion that humbles is born of a deeper understanding of the order of things. When you understand that the other guy is lacking so that you may be privileged to help him – then you are truly humbled.
