Flying on the wings of wisdom and compassion…Nurturing Thursday

A bird needs two wings to fly.
Like the bird, we also benefit from using two wings…
the wings of “wisdom” and “compassion.”

*

One wing can be represented by “wisdom” the perspectives and deep insights  about the nature of  life, the universe,  people and their interactions.

The other wing can be represented by “compassion” a sense of love, kindness, acceptance and the  heartfelt wish for others to be free from unhappiness or suffering.

Wisdom, without compassion, might become aloof or dispassionate.
Compassion, without wisdom, might become overwhelming.
Together they enhance and balance each other.
Wisdom and Compassion

May we all develop our abilities
to fly on our own wings of wisdom and compassion
