rabies: (Happiness)
[personal profile] rabies
The first kind of compassion (biological compassion), cannot extend toward your enemy. The second one can reach toward your enemy. Here now, differences: The limited biological compassion is much based on actions, or activities, or attitude. Therefore, your friend, who shows positive attitude, on that basis you develop sense of concern. Your so called enemy, their attitude toward you is negative. So we call them enemy. No longer a sense of caring. Now second type of compassion, infinite, that compassion is based on being rather than their attitude. So in respective, the other's attitude toward you doesn't matter, only that they're just like me, sentient being. Who wants happiness, who does not want suffering. Everyone has the right to overcome suffering. So thinking this way, then develop sense of concern. From that way, we can develop genuine sense of concern and compassion toward your enemy. As far as the enemy is concerned, they are negative towards you. But still they are a sentient being, or human being, so they deserve our love and compassion. - The 14th Dalai Lama
