Compassion is … ‘womb’ in Hebrew, from the root word rahamim. When we offer compassion to another soul, it is like we are holding them in our womb. What a beautiful metaphor 🙂 A nest has the same concept of a womb. It is a sacred vessel for precious new life and a womb is the same. When we give compassion to another, it is like we are being a sacred vessel for them to receive ‘new life’ to keep steady on their journey.
