Passion is lust, compassion is love. Passion is desire, compassion is desirelessness. Passion is greed, compassion is sharing.

Passion wants to use the other as a means, compassion respects the other as an end unto himself or herself. Passion keeps you tethered to earth, to mud and you never become a lotus. Compassion makes you a lotus. You start rising above the muddy world of desires, greed and anger. Compassion is a transformation of your energies.
