Excess Compassion

Spirit shares His understanding of timeless wisdom
expressed within the I Ching hexagram 62 – Small Excess.

Thunder is over Mountain. Both contain active yang energy,
each reinforcing the power of the other.

Small excess suggests a limited expansion of an otherwise
rigid boundary of what is acceptable or required, such as
pouring even a little more of whatever into a cup than it
can contain. That would be wasteful

Can there be a little excess of compassion?

What would it look like?

Caring and yet recognizing a need for even more care.

How is that expressing excess compassion?

Giving all that I can and knowing that it isn’t enough
to satisfy the need of those for whom I feel compassion.

We can never give even a small excess of compassion.
No amount would be wasteful.

Whether or not it seemed to be appreciated?

Compassion is a feeling of oneness with all and reflects
the quality of our own awareness of the oneness of all
life. We share our love. We don’t measure it.
