My mind is full of suffering of children starvation violence displacement exploitation. It is painful to consider. It gives me the emotions of fear anger grief and shame. This is attachment. How can I see the difference between attachment and compassion and act?

There is the world where there is no distinction between self and other, yet easily the shadow of a self gets added. While working for peace, demonstrations become violent, that is meaningless. At this point it is important for the ego to become purified, that is zazen. When your mind has become quiet, then for the first time pure compassion can arise.
