Quan Yin - Goddess of Compassion. One who observes the cries of the world. We do not always have a solution for suffering. We cannot always fix pain. However, we can find the commitment to stay connected & to listen deeply. Compassion does not always demand heroic acts or great words. In the times of darkest distress, what is most deeply needed is the fearless presence of a person who can be wholeheartedly receptive.
