Dangerously Compassionate: The Merit Badge!


My last postson being dangerously compassionate have garnered such lovely responses in my inbox and on Twitter, that I decided to feature the topic at least one more time. In case you missed it, here, my Magpie friend, is how to get your merit badge for being Dangerously Compassionate. Read on, then grab the badge and let the world know you are on the compassionate path.

(From the badge page…)

Would you rather be loving, or right?

You can spend all your time ascertaining “right” from “wrong.”
Writing maps that keep you safely on the right track.
Making sure you follow the rules. (And consequently judging other who do not.)

Or you could be bold as love.

Love is not a a soft focus-photo of kittens.

Love is brave.
Love makes you quake in your boots.
Love transforms you–like birth, like fire. .

Love is not a tame lion.

And to live compassionately out of the burning heart of love? Well that’s just down-right dangerous.

What if today you focused on being loving rather than being right?
What if you took as your truth, “It was in love I was created, and in love is how I hope I die.”

What if you left “right” sitting on the curb and held hands with love instead?

Where might it take you. How might you then live?

Let’s find out together.

(Amen? Amen.)
