Reflections of Reggie the Egyptian Rescue Dog: Self Compassion and Pain

“As we cultivate mindfulness in our own hearts, we can direct similar compassion towards ourselves. Sometimes we need to care for ourselves as if that suffering is our own child. Why not show compassion, Kindness, and sympathy toward our own being, even as we openly fully to our pain? To treat ourselves with as much kindness as we would another person in pain is a wonderfully healing meditation in its own right. It cultivates lovingkindness and compassion, which know no boundaries “
