Weekly Goddess Inspiration: Kuan Yin

It's been a hard spring for many of us, including this Priestess. We've been doing a lot of emotional housecleaning, facing fears, putting to rest old selves, and navigating a world that seems to be determined to show us its cruelest face. It can be hard to find even a moment of peace, of gentleness, of compassion. That's why I'm delighted that Kuan Yin, She Who Hears the Cries of the World, has decided to visit us this week. 

Kuan Yin reminds us that if our compassion does not include ourselves, it is incomplete. She also reminds us to release judgement. This does not mean that we cannot be discerning, or that we cannot decide to remove ourselves from situations that are toxic or harmful. Rather, she reminds us that we can use our discernment and compassion to transform ourselves and others. b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_0373.JPG

As you work with Kuan Yin this week, here are some questions to ponder:

What does "compassion" mean to me?

What messages have I received about compassion?

What are some ways in which I can demonstrate compassion to myself?

What are some ways in which I can demonstrate compassion to others?
