The Compassionate Path — by Guru Singh

A river meanders across the land, and does not always appear to be heading toward its destination. Yet every river is already at its destination and also at the source. “Think like a river,” the Buddha said, “when not heading toward your goal . . . you’re always heading to it.” The balance sheet of life is called karma. It contains assets and debts . . . this is the cumulative record of your many lifetimes. Whether a good, or bad moment — life is always reaching for its balance, and when you’re aware of this you’ll show compassion. When you’re aware that a person — no matter how badly they’re behaving — is making their way toward balance, you understand their mistakes are in this moment . . . not their entire life.

The soul is the power that moves life; the spirit is that which sustains life; the mind is that which explains life; the emotions are that which feel life — all in a physical body which contains the life.
Hey this is half of the entire little essay. The other half completes the thought. (I don't hold with the thought of multiple lifetimes exactly. However, my view that we have an epigenetic inheritance is similar. That doesn't diminish my appreciation of this brilliant little essay.)

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.
