21.   ON A TIGHTROPE: COMPASSION

The girl, wearing an apple-green leotard, stands firmly and comfortably on a high wire, which is suspended over an Amazonian rain forest. A wide river, with a boat moving along it, winds through the forest far below. She holds a long wooden staff. On one end of the staff sits a nest containing three hungry baby birds; at the other end sits their mother, apparently unconcerned.

It is easy to confuse pity and compassion. There is a difference between the ego's desire to feel superior and to control, and the Higher Self's desire truly to be of service. One can best serve by rising above "the jungle" and not becoming involved in emotional issues. One remains ready, alert, and anything but coldly detached. [SOLD]
