"Understand through Compassion or you will Misunderstand the Times." 

Yogi Bhajan clarified this sutra when he said we need to understand through compassion—instead of  passion—or we will misunderstand. Passions are like tides coming and going. The mind can't be steady because the tidal waves of passion will always take the mind up, down, and all around.

Compassion is like a trade wind carrying you across an infinite ocean. "Turn your passions into compassion by feeling others are you and you are others. Remove the barriers of the egocentric self and feel the self in all. All is one and one is all.” It is only when you come from your heart that your words can penetrate every heart. "When a being becomes totally a being  of compassion, then his words can shake every heart, they penetrate.”

"It is the touch of the hand, a spoken word and the contact of the eyes which open the heart of the man, not the knowledge of all the libraries in the world." 
- Yogi Bhajan
