Love and compassion is related to the ability of being open to oneself and to others. To be open implies to make inner space for experiencing what actually "is", without projecting. The vision we have of the others depends on the relationship we establish with ourselves. Beyond body, thoughts, language and emotions there exists a level of being, which implies the feeling of existing without needing other support than itself. Established in our natural state of being, without need of support from others, we feel strong in ourselves, and can afford to give space to the natural experience of self and others, which in turn decreases projections.
