When heart and mind stand for what is worthwhile, they are no longer subject to external pressure. Action that flows from love and appreciation, rather than from fear and anxiety, has a dynamic and long lasting influence on others.
The courage to act arises from caring for a good purpose and from inner conviction and confidence. When appreciation is transformed into action, compassion flows forth as skillful means engaged in the world.
