Emotional Compassion & Compassion

You do not have to feel compassion.
That is the distinction between emotional compassion and compassion:
You do not necessarily feel it; you are it.
Usually, if you are open, compassion happens because
you are not preoccupied with some kind of self-indulgence.

âChogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, From: Cutting Through Spiritual
Materialsm, Shambhala Publications
