The fire of compassion heals.

The fire of sacrificial love is beautiful.

The fire of loving-kindness makes all things new.

anthony glenn miller

 

Only the one who is compassionate

Can show true bravery,

And in defending, show great strength.

Compassion is the means by which

Humankind may be guarded and saved,

For heaven arms with compassion,

Those whom it would not see destroyed.

Chapter 67 – Tao Te Ching

 

 – John the Baptist regarding Jesus –

I baptize you with water for repentance,

But one who is more powerful than I is coming after me;

I am not worthy to carry his sandals.

He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Matthew 3:11
