Enhance your capacity to cultivating a compassionate heart. Chances are, someone in your midst could use a little of your time, a bit of your spirit. A friend or a neighbor, a coworker of a family member, maybe even a stranger could benefit from someone's reaching out to them. This little book encourages you to adopt compassion as a way of life instead of saving it for special occasions. The essays provide for doing just that, be it tending injured animals or bearing another's burdens.

Go beyond merely forgiving and forgetting...and discover how to make peace with your past. Like many of you, I've been dealt a few cards I do not think I deserved. In response, I used to think forgiving and forgetting meant I had to act like I had never been wronged. The writers in this collection tell me otherwise. Forgiving, they say, does not require pretending you were never hurt. It does mean, however, that you'll need to make peace with your past in order to embrace the future.
