If we can cultivate compassion for ourselves, and by default, those around ourselves, we become capable of cultivating the daring needed to follow our will. Without a sense of compassion, it is much more difficult to risk the mistakes that are necessary to our learning process. If we do not learn, we die inside. We have to come to know that what we seek is worth the finding. We have to come to comprehend that we may cause those around us to experience fear, or even pain. There is a cost to this desiring, but the cost for not pursuing our desires is even greater.
Who are you to not step toward your destiny? Who are you to hide from the world?
