Hi... I am new here and thankful that I found this site. I seek a better understanding so that I might respond to a very important person in my life. She believes in budhism.
She has given me books to read. I have read, and she says that "I don't get it".
What I read and what she teaches seems to me to be contrary. I have many questions
that go unanswered or the answers don't seem right. She has much suffering. I suffer much. Our relationship suffers and I am stuck. So, I am here to ask questions and to gain an understanding, that I might find a direction within myself. I begin here:
Compassion: A deep feeling to share the suffering of another, together with the
inclination to offer aid, support, or mercy.
Is it important to extend my thanks and appreciation for the compassion that has been afforded me by my partner. If so, how?
Just the beginning,
Thank you, DaveG
