A loving heart is soft. It cares for others, & feels the joy, & pain of others. In this caring lies it’s ability of sharing. It finds itself easy to connect to others & it adapts to the wavelength of others.
The question here lies - how do we keep our hearts enveloped with compassion ?
The key to this lies in the mind experiencing inner peace. Ask any psychologist what is an important key to beat the blues of depression & they will say it is the ability to keep oneself active, & productive. A busy life with activities is an important tool in keeping our hearts soft, & tender too. Activity is directly linked to compassion.
Idleness hardens the heart !
