Jedi Training – Compassion

February 20th

Week Eight Day Eight
of Jedi Training Begins.
This month’s focus?
Respect for All Life

This week’s focus?
Compassion.
How is it different
from empathy?

Empathy is the ability to feel
what another person feels.
Compassion is the ability
to recognize how another person feels

Compassion
is like walking on water,
while empathy is like
swimming or drowning in it.

One must first know empathy,
however,
before they can recognize and show
compassion.
