Karunya (compassion) emerges only when one is unconditional and unwavering in the heart to be there in the very moment. This moment is having its foundation in love and affection that flows through unconditionally.
There is a beautiful way to know if the serving,caring, compassion is real or not by the self. This is important for it allows one to realize the way being followed us from heart or is based on certain norms and conditions.
When a moment of serving comes for anyone be it part of you, your family or known hold, wait and watch your thoughts, watch your breath, watch your body for a minute.
If the body is calm, breath is normal, heart beat heard once or not, thoughts normal, then the compassion is not there. Serving Will be a formality.
If the body is shaking with fear, eyes are filled up, breath is broken, thoughts are full of fear. It is your love talking, conditional love fearing unknown, thoughts of unknown now. It is a sense of void of broken shattered heart. Compassion would be there but it shall be filled with fear.
If the body is shaking for movement, eyes are blank, breath is normal, thoughts are in now. It is this moment when Karunya emerges, the mind acts in the most logical, rational manner while heart is full of the emotion, love, affection and a need for having the control in the moment. The actions Will be natural while the emptiness of the heart Will remain unheard, unknown to the world for such a spirit Will allow the tears to flow only in presence of those who can understand and know.
