You try to be compassionate and kind to others. You train yourself to be more present and receptive with others. You practice generosity and patience. You do all these things, and none of them seem to make a difference.
The world is still in turmoil. Everywhere we turn there is another injustice. Things seem to be getting worse, not better.
What good is our practice in a world that seems to care less?
Don't worry about the result.
Don't focus on the result of your compassion. Don't wonder how your generosity paid off. It is of no concern if your effort made an impact.
Focus on the practice. Stay engaged. Work on the cause.
