without educating the heart is no education at all." Aristotle
For too long, modern society focuses on the mental and intellectual development of the human being without an emphasis on the heart. To learn, to grow, to expand our sense of self and to broaden our understanding of life, ourselves, others and the world, we must also develop the heart. Cultivating compassion through forgiveness opens our heart to our own self, which allows us to open to others. When we can view the world through compassion, Love becomes our living truth and old, stuck, negative thoughts can no longer have an effect on our health or well being. Compassion brings us into the now moment of the presence of Love.
