29.00

Compassion is a wonderful spiritual attunement. It is a form of love and gentleness that makes you involved in the other. Making that you have an eye for another’s pain and sorrow. For the problems that other people have, for what’s wrong in this world. And that asks us not to look away from it, but to help.

Compassion or mercy is the listening ear, the understanding attitude, the arm around the shoulder or the warm hug. It gives others the feeling that they are not alone and left to their fate. This will do you well too. Compassion helps to connect people. To find solutions together, to relieve pain, and to bring people closer. Would you be in for some charity? Then Compassion is a small investment to make this world a nicer and better world.

Description

COMPASSION, THE UNDERSTANDING ATTITUDE THAT REDUCES PAIN AND SORROW

Compassion: involvement coming from equivalence

The attunement Compassion is a soft and gentle energy that feels very nice. It embraces as it were the pain and softens it that way. The pain of the other as well as the pain of yourself. Compassion is also described with words like mercy, empathy, sympathy and softheartedness. And also with words like understanding or brotherly love. Pity, having pity for someone, differs from compassion because it often assumes a difference of level. Then the person having pity or commiseration unconsciously or consciously sees himself as better. This may come across as patronizing. Compassion however is by definition of equivalence. It is the recognition of what you feel or know that the other feels. It understands the similarity between people and therefore feels involvement.

Connectedness that makes that suffering can be felt

Compassion is a form of connectedness, of solidarity. Connectedness on a heart level, feeling connected with what the other feels. How the other experiences and processes life or a certain event. This can very well be compared with the saying: misery truly loves company. It makes that you are not indifferent to the suffering of others. That you care about the other. That you can feel the pain of the other because you feel connected. Because you see similarities between the two of you and the pain of others may also be felt in your heart. It therefore brings some kind of energetic relationship, and fits to a feeling of Oneness. Because when we are all One, we are also One of heart. And love and understanding will arise in our heart for whatever touches us.

Problems, sadness and misery

Compassion however is much wider than only pain and suffering. Although in these cases it perhaps is the most outspoken. Compassion can also be about problems, sadness, misery. About difficulties you have to overcome but prove so difficult if you are all on your own. About spiritual development. And about being caught up in the illusion and not knowing exactly how to proceed. Compassion gives consistency, commitment and a warm heart. It will do every right-minded person good to receive understanding and a warm welcome. Through compassion there arises responsibility. Not only for yourself, but also for others and for the whole. It strengthens the cohesion between people and reduces the vulnerability of a group or society as a whole.

Being relentless or having a loving heart

You can see how unpleasant a lack of compassion is in people who are described as ruthless. People who only have an eye for their own pain and needs. They who do everything in their power to reach their selfish goals and scare nothing at all. People who lost their humanity. Who won’t mind to kill and don’t care what their actions do with other people. The small and great dictators of this world. At the end, they will always be without any friends. Exactly these people let us see what a world you get if you have a lack of compassion. These people can stimulate us to be compassionate. Knowing how good it will do us and our world.

The help for everything that needs to be solved

The attunement Compassion brings forth the cordiality and softness that brings people closer. You can have Compassion for others, yourself, small and big groups. It can focus on personal, social or worldly issues. It is an effective means of improvement, because where understanding and compassion is, there is room for the solution. Compassionate feelings can be used for anything that demands a solution. And then it is the listening ear, the understanding attitude, the arm around the shoulder or the warm hug that gives the other support. The feeling that others want to help you, already gives relief and comfort. Whoever is compassionate shows softness and shows understanding and love flowing from his heart. Separation is the basis for dissatisfaction, conflict, sadness and sorrow. For indifference and heartlessness. Compassion, on the other hand, brings coherence, Oneness, and this world has a lot of need for that.
