    Compassion – connect more deeply and become a kinder person.

    In boxing, two opponents fight in a ring until one wins. After that, the fight is over – forever. But in spite of this, at the end of each bout, it’s pretty common for the two fighters to embrace. But why? After all, the battle is over. Well, through the process of a long, brutal, and sometimes life-threatening fight, most boxers form a bond with their opponent. As a result, they feel great empathy for each other. A hug at the end of the fight is a chance to reconnect – to show each other compassion.

    And why not be compassionate? Us-versus-them thinking is one of the most harmful aspects of society. It fuels resentment, rage, and violence. By cultivating compassion, we promote equality. When we do, we realize we all want the same things: to be happy and free of suffering. The world becomes less frightening when we accept that we’re all in this together.

    So, do you consider yourself a compassionate person? The good news is, that even if you don’t, you can learn to be compassionate – and there are powerful advantages to doing so. For example, studies have shown that compassion increases happiness while decreasing anxiety and depression.

    So how can you learn? Well, you can develop compassion using the first phase of this meditation method. Try this visualization exercise. Inhale deeply and then exhale slowly. Now imagine a loved one in front of you. Allow the sensation of love to spread throughout your body, from your heart to every cell. Feel it form a comforting bubble around you. Take another deep breath. Exhale and visualize your compassion spreading through your home. Now spread that kindness across the whole of your country. Go one step further and watch your compassion disseminate across the entire world.

    Of course, it’s a big ask. But it all comes down to practice. If you get tired, go back to the first step and repeat. Imagine your loved one and replenish the oxytocin you’ve drained. The more you practice, the easier it’ll be to access compassion when you need it the most.

    As you become empathic, your connections become more profound, secure, and harmonious. You’ll also be more comfortable with compassion and more likely to act kindly in everyday life. Now, let’s move on to discuss how to combine your compassion with gratitude.
