With Dignity

“Offering care and attention is, I now believe, at the heart of treating people with dignity. I saw that if indignity tears us apart, dignity can put us back together again.”

~ Donna Hicks, “Dignity: The Essential Role It Plays in Resolving Conflict”


Become A Witness


“Be less of a judge and you will be surprised that when you become a witness and you don’t judge yourself, you stop judging others too. And that makes you more human, more compassionate, more understanding.”

~ Osho

Wanting Transformation


“The whole of the vision of Jesus, which is the vision of peace, is about coming out from behind barriers and discovering people as they are. That is the promise that had been foretold through great prophets like Isaiah and Ezekiel: ‘I will remove the heart of stone in you and give you a heart of flesh.’ I will put my spirit within you.”

The spirit of God will be given, so that then we will see people, not through the glasses of our impoverished humanity and our wounds, but as God sees them. It’s a transformation. And to enter into the world of transformation we need to want it.”

~ Jean Vanier, Encountering ‘the Other’

Circles Of Compassion


“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

~ Albert Einstein
