Compassion is the goal toward which spirituality points.
I am reviewing Buddhism, a non-theistic religion, in the hope of quieting my aggression, negativity, and antagonism: here is Buddha’s sutra on the cultivation of loving kindness.
Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings:
Radiating kindness over the entire world
Spreading upwards to the skies,
And downwards to the depths;
I yet have much to learn.
