How different things would be if we lived compassionately. Instead, we live indifferently to the plights of our fellow man. Rather than being abstract, let us take a look at the case of the minority immigrant in the United States.
In the land of the free and home of the brave, where millions have always sought refuge from their dreams, you would expect compassion. But we have begun referring to hopeful people as undocumented workers. You only need take a glance at the news to see how we bicker and attack rather than unite and resolve.
Where is the eagerness to connect, reach out and help make someone else’s life easier? We only seem to believe in compassion among people who think, look and act like us. But is that real compassion.
It is a shame, the term undocumented worker is meant to play to the fear of people losing jobs in a lousy economy. More people coming into the country is supposed to result in even fewer jobs for citizens or “documented workers.” But compassion requires that we remove our selfishness for the sake of others.
To those who argue that they cannot find work because of immigrants, I say open your heart and imagine what conditions these undocumented workers must endure for them to jump at the very little they may be afforded abroad. Through compassion, you see the world with newer eyes, and you fall in love with life with a bigger heart.
Make a list of the jobs that you claim are stolen from you. If you are compassionate, you will be honest. This was never about employment, just an excuse for hate. So choose compassion instead, smile more.
And if you feel as though these human beings cause employers to lower wages and settle for cheap labour, then the real issue is a lack of unions that represent your interests and not the people willing to feed their families with the crumbs that others dust off dinner tables.
We have to end the name calling on all sides, the looking down on others from the right, the turning up of the nose from the left. What will unite us is compassion. Let us stop labelling people because that is where separations are manufactured. Let us start regarding all of humanity as a family.
Stop heartlessly calling people undocumented workers. Your lack of work is more due to jobs leaving the country than immigrants coming in. Compassion allows you to see things as they indeed are. You are not caught up in the fog of fear, propaganda, and anger.
You become a better you by practising compassion.
