I have several questions on compassion i would like to ask your opinion on.
When i look around i see so much misery and pain it also seems that everyone is suffering in someway. So would the Buddhist idea of compassion suggest i help or try tp help them? If so this seems a huge task and almost makes me feel it is a to greater task for me to take on. Who do i prioritise to help or do i? How would i go about it? Or is it a case of just being sympathetic and empathetic towards other people's suffering.
Secondly there is always i feel the one person you feel ever so hard to be compassionate to. For me it would be a bully who picked on me every single day of my school life. should i be compassionate to him? How would one generate such compassion?
Or is compassion just a byproduct of the process of letting go and i should focus on this rather than smaller qualities?
Thank you for your time and your input would be greatly appriciated.
