There exists states/stages of damage and states/stages of healing. A compassion mind set, to me, is a healing mind/repairing process. (Non-compassion is damaging…wounding.)
The body has amazing healing abilities…so, does a compassionate mind…functioning well/wellness: spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically.

Platelets adhere to tissues around a wound, forming a blood clot and sealing damaged blood vessels.
Inflammation protects against infection and removes any “debris” caused by the injury.
Within days, the body begins to replace injured tissue, make the wound contract, and repair damaged blood vessels.
Finally, scar tissue remodels and strengthens the damaged area.
Inspired by blood clotting, researchers are developing plastics that can “heal” damage to themselves. Such regenerating materials are equipped with tiny parallel tubes containing two chemicals that “bleed” when any damage occurs. As the two chemicals mix, they form a gel that spreads across the damaged areas, closing cracks and holes. As the gel solidifies, it forms a tough substance that restores the material’s original strength. One researcher admits that this synthetic healing process currently under development is “reminiscent” of what already exists in nature.
Nature…compassion at work!:) (What does nature tell us about the Divine Mind?)
