Compassion is a mountain. No one has been to the top. Only some of us have found a stunning vista. It is an ever-reaching challenge. Our Mount Everest. Kindness is not compassion. Goodness is not compassion. Evil secretes compassion in its understanding of difference. Look at the evil you do and you will gain compassion. Prometheus stole fire. It was not given to him. He had to do something wrong to claim it. This is the meaning of Lucifer.
