Why practice compassion & opening your heart? When we’re ruminating on our own pain and suffering, we’re only thinking about ourselves. Thinking about ourselves only causes us more pain. The Buddhists believe that all suffering comes from putting ourselves first, or thinking about ourselves too much. This thinking leads us to believe that we’re separate from others. In truth, we are all connected, and anything in this life that provides lasting happiness is available in great abundance.
