    Compassion with demands (like wanting gratitude) is pseudo-compassion.

    If it feels good that is fine, but not if that is the reason to do it. Then it is pseudo again. IMO.

    Neither was it the question. The question was is it real compassion if you could give 10 but give only 1? It doesn't matter if money helps or not. It is not about who you are helping or how you are helping, but about fake or real compassion and where the line is drawn.

    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.
