Excerpt About Trust

Compassion is in the Service of Truth
You see here a very intimate connection between compassion and truth and trust. Hurt, or pain, which people usually link with compassion, is really not as important a thing to compassion as people imagine it to be. People think compassion is for hurt. It isn’t. Only at the most superficial level is compassion for hurt. Compassion is for truth. Compassion, it is true, relates to hurt, but it is in the service of truth, not in the service of eliminating hurt.
