So to continue on the weekly Deepak Chopra dose, the next letter is the English alphabet is C. And in the ‘Soul of Healing Affirmations’ C stands for Compassion.

I have to say the timing on posting this could not be more perfect. If you follow me on Facebook you’ll see that I do not agree with the new President or his administration on many issues but one in particular, healthcare. And what I’ve come to realize is, in my opinion, they exude a lack of compassion. To rid people of an essential part of life which includes healthcare and programs that help with reproductive services for both men and women is, in my opinion, disturbing and just out right greedy. Again the only thing that comes to mind; lack of compassion. I recently attended the Women’s March is my home town of San Diego and it was so inspiring to see every walk of life support an awesome cause of equal rights, justice and compassion.

So without further ado, below is the script for C is for Compassion from the ‘Soul of Healing Affirmations’ by Deepak Chopra.

C is for Compassion

I will see a stranger today through the eyes of compassion.

I will remind myself that this stranger has parents and people who love her, just like me. 

I will remind myself that this stranger has moments of joy, just like me. 

I will remind myself that this stranger has moments of anguish and suffering, just like me. 

I will remind myself that this stranger will one day grow old, just like me. 

I will remind myself that this stranger will go through the cycles of illness and recovery, just like me. 

I will remind myself that this stranger will one day die, just like me. 

Through the eyes of compassion, I will know this stranger not a stranger anymore but as a living soul, just like me.
