“When someone else makes you suffer, it's because they suffer deep within themselves and their suffering is overflowing. This person doesn't need punishment but needs help."

Thich Nhat Hanh

developing compassion

A path of practice

A Chinese proverb says that “there is no path to compassion; it is the way”. 
Bringing it into any interactions you might have and asking yourself how you can help others is the path to compassion; it's something we create using it in every interaction we have.
When you find someone in pain, ask yourself: how can I help this person?
Try to make it a daily habit to try to be compassionate to someone in need.
Valuing caring and compassion in all relationships so compassion can be cultivated.
This leads to increased positive emotions, greater presence and a clearer sense of purpose, and a broader sense of happiness. They promote alteration of neural networks, in such a way that we start to react to the suffering of others with spontaneous compassion, instead of affliction and despair or denial of suffering. But, react with resilience.

Developing resilience leads to the development of our Spiritual Intelligence, as it places our actions and experiences in a broader context of meaning and value. It makes us stronger to recognize our sense of purpose and personal direction, aiming to act in a way that generates positive impacts on the whole, understanding that we are also impacted by the whole.
Resilience is a process of adapting in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedies, threats, or significant sources of stress, such as family and relationship issues, serious health problems, or workplace and financial stressors. This word can also be found in physics, as a property that some bodies have to return to their original shape after being subjected to an elastic deformation.
