Novena of Compassion: December 18

Christmas Wreath

THE GOD OF COMPASSION INVITES ME to honor my feelings. Success has become so compelling that I cannot get off the high-speed train of frenetic action. I cannot constantly live for the expectations of others, and forget who I really am, and how I really feel. I need to apply the brakes. What will it profit me if everyone applauds me, yet there is this nagging feeling that it could all be a show, a theatre of make-believe characters who dance gracefully with my song? Nothing could be more effective than self-introspection. I need to touch my own soul.

Today, I will savor the different nuances of my life, and value others for who they are. I WILL SET A FINE EXAMPLE FOR OTHERS TO EMULATE.
