With the self-honesty, self-acceptance, and self-transparency of self-compassion, we have nothing to hide; and with nothing to hide, we have less to be afraid of.

Compassion gets us out of our usual head full of disappointments, regrets, and worries about ourselves and focused on something bigger.

“There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.” – Jane Austen

Contemplative practice gives us a way to quiet our mind from within – not by running away from it, but by approaching it; not by distracting it, but by applying it.
