Usually we have compassion only for the innocent victims: children, animals, etc. Usually then our Robina Courtin_colour_2007compassion turns into anger for the harmers; our compassion is too superficial.

According to the Buddhist perspective, everyone suffers, even the harmers: in fact, they harm others because they themselves are suffering. We’re all driven by the same anger, attachment, jealousy, resentment, pride, and the rest; it’s just a question of degree.

The more we understand our own fears and neuroses, the more we can understand how they are the cause of why we make a mess of our relationships, and then we can begin to understand others, and have compassion for them – because we can see that they are not only harming others but themselves as well.
