“To feel ‘compassion’ without anadequate practical result ensuing fromit is not to show oneself an ‘Altruist’but the reverse. Real self-developmenton the esoteric lines is action.” (Helena P. Blavatsky, in her article“What Shall We Do For Our Fellow-Men?”)   The healing power of compassion has been written about since ancient times. It is well known that compassion is an important part of any healing relationship. There are many excellent ways to define compassion. However, once compassion is regarded to be a skill that one can learn through training and put into action, then one can test, check and verify its power to benefit physical health, moral stamina, and relationships with others. by Steven H.
