I am compassionate and gentle in spirit.
Throughout modern history, there have been many influential people renowned for their gentle nature—Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, to name just a few. Their approach to others was one of dignity and respect in a compassionate, caring manner. I, too, have the capacity to be this way. I can be gentle with family when doing every task. I am kind to myself as I take care of my body. I can be calm in the pace of everyday life, taking time to be the face and voice of compassion. I can develop a gentle nature in my interactions with others and the world around me. By being gentle with myself and others, I do my part in creating a more caring and compassionate world.
May my teaching drop like the rain, my speech condense like the dew; like gentle rain on grass, like showers on new growth.—Deuteronomy 32:2
