Waves in the Ocean of Compassion Meditation

June 22, 2022

Ride the wave of relaxation and discovery in this guided meditation led by Julie Potiker. She completes the meditation with the poem, 'Human Emotions', by Jessica Kantrowitz.

Human Emotions

I am human, and nothing human is alien to me – Terrence


Good morning humans.

What do you feel today?

Fear, joy grief, longing,

anger, love, frustration,

happiness, exhaustion, bewilderment,

anxiety, amusement, hope?

I feel it, too.

There is nothing in you however wild or strange

that is not in me, too.

There is nothing weird in me

that part of you does not recognize.

We are somehow each entirely, beautifully unique.

And the same, the same, the same.
