“Persistent impatience weakens the bonds of love; patience strengthens them.” (excerpted w 8/2017)
Strong Assertions can seem like fresh water, but when gulped down can, in reality, be salty sea water! We all get thirsty, we all need fresh, clean water…not fanciful opinions, inaccuracies based on fictions, misinformation designed to mislead and manipulate…leading to further IF not deadly dehydration.
Drink Up the fresh, clean, pure water…people!:)
BTW: this post: intentionally designed to reach actual readers who are serious about the pursuit of “compassion”!:)

Greetings Reader(s):) aka Fellow-Fragile-Life or Breathing-Fragile-Life or Beautiful-Breathing-Fragile-Fellows 🙂 All life is precious, fragile, and beautiful, eh? All life needs to be respected, huh? (Oh, and appreciated.)
I was thinking about language since always working on being a better communicator, in particular, of compassion and agape love. What is the most challenging language to learn, adopt, practice culture, etc?…perhaps, in some ways, it is indeed compassion..which calls for total immersion, active and passive listening and learning indirectly and directly…sacrifice, discomfort, pain and participation/determination and lots of WORK!..and continuous on-going education of one sort or another…it calls for change, transformation and transcendence.
Some days are tough lessons like visiting a younger woman in hospice with a young kid about to lose his mother to cancer…or may be it is attempting to learn a rather difficult actual language of a minority group living in your area…or may be? its putting the best interests of Others over your own interests or losing sleep or food to help at odd hours or share whatever you have that someone may desperately need! It’s a bunch of random and organized doings…and talkings and communications, and learnings, logistics, etc. It’s a willingness to voluntarily be there…when/if needed 24/7 eh?! (It’s learning to help yourself, not hurt yourself, and help others and not hurt others in the process of living this life.) It’s acts of selflessness, etc…which painstakingly don’t come easy.
i am exhausted/more than fatigued physically and mentally and have pushed myself cause may be? it is true: “no pain, no gain”… am making not much sense at the moment in my writing, huh?? forget grammar, forget definitions, forget expectations, forget………………my obvious lack of adequate vocabulary to truly explain what is in my heart at the moment..
what little i’ve come to learn…COMPASSION is all-encompassing and it is time (or whatever else) well-spent!!!!!!:)
and life-altering…(for the better)
PEACE PEOPLE & Happy Compassionate Week-end to You All Near and Far!

We live in times of uncertainty; that’s for sure!
2 “certain” things to trust:
“This is what Jehovah says,
Who gives the sun for light by day,
The laws (statutes) of the moon and the stars for light by night,
Who stirs up the sea and makes its waves boisterous,
Whose name is Jehovah of armies:” (Jeremiah 31:35, 36)
Man’s products: Light bulbs blow out and break. Candles melt and wicks burn up. (Aka whatever so-called “good” man can accomplish is only temporary at best including any solutions to problems.)
God’s creations: Everlasting Luminaries!:) (Permanent, reliable reminders of the surpassing superiority of Divine Wisdom at continuous work.)
Why not put your (complete) trust in God??

2 powerful motivators:
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts fear out, because fear restrains us. Indeed, the one who is fearful has not been made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18

Heb., ta·mar […]The long taproot of the palm enables it to reach down to water sources not available to many plants and thus to thrive amid desert conditions. […]The tall, stately palm, with its straight, uniform trunk rising up to 30 m (100 ft) and cresting with a plume of long feathery fronds, makes a graceful silhouette of unique beauty. [excerpt Palm Tree Insight Vol 2]
for palms are sometimes used in the Bible to stand for uprightness. (Ps. 92:12 “But the righteous will flourish like a palm tree And grow big like a cedar in Lebʹa·non.”)
