“Look into your own heart; discover what it is that gives you pain. And then refuse, under any circumstances whatsoever, to inflict that pain on anybody else.” -Karen Armstrong
The Charter for Compassion, is a worldwide movement created by religious leader Karen Armstrong and dedicated to building a peaceful world through compassion.
Take a look around. You’ll find many inspiring quotes on the website as well a copy of the Charter that has been signed by many world and religious leaders.
The quote above is at the heart of compassion — the refusal to inflict the pain we have felt on others. That refusal is at the heart of all religions.
Can you imagine what our lives and our world would be like if we dedicated ourselves to healing instead of hurting each other?
