Bi (aka Tu Bi): the Compassion, Empathy, and Kindness to Others
Compassion, empathy and kindness should be the foundation for our interaction with others. In the circle of life, we all pick the fruits from the seed we sowed. Some fruits are sweet and others are bitter. It is inescapable for anyone to claim that he/she did not experienced unfavorable Karma at some point in life. In our interactions with others, we may at times inadvertently or purposely plant the seeds for an unfortunate harvest. It is our ignorance to the consequence and/or the false belief that we can cheat fate and avoid the repercussion that we blindly continue in our ways.
I believe that we should do whatever we can, when circumstances are called upon, to help another life being by positively affecting another's life course. All life beings, whether a human or an animal, at some point in time, feel pain and suffering. The manifestation of antecedents, in the here and now, is what we face each day. We should do what we can to bring light and brightness into another's life, since each one of us is afflicted in one degree or another.
In my life journey, I feel that Bi has helped me be at peace during the challenging times. Bi has helped me in several ways:
-to forgive and forget the wrongs of others
-to react with compassion and pass light and kindness forward to others
-to not propagate the hatred and resentments nor perpetuate any negativity
Whenever I apply Bi, each interaction I encounter becomes more meaningful and positive both myself and others along my life path.
