When our mind is governed by compassion it is always at peace.
Pure compassion is a mind that finds the suffering of others unbearable, but it does not make us depressed. In fact, it gives us tremendous energy to work for others and to complete the spiritual path for their sake. It shatters our complacency and makes it impossible to rest content with the superficial happiness of satisfying our worldly desires, yet in its place we will come to know a deep inner peace that cannot be disturbed by changing conditions. When our mind is governed by compassion it is always at peace. This is the experience of all those who have developed their compassion beyond the limited compassion normally felt for those we feel close to into a selfless compassion for all living beings.

“Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. We all wish for
world peace, but world peace will never be acheived unless we first
establish peace within our own minds. We can send so-called
'peacekeeping forces' into areas of conflict, but peace cannot be
oppossed from the outside with guns. Only by creating peace within our
own mind and helping others to do the same can we hope to achieve peace
in this world.”
