The secret to climbing the spiritual ladder of consciousness is ‘to pay attention’ to how your action or non actions affect another. Empathy is having sensitivity and feelings for others positions from thoughts to Feng Shui or harmonious order that feels good to common sense and discernment. All life, at it’s best, has an order on all levels from the position of the planets, to the seasons, our tides, day and night, on and on. In daily living of life there is best an order in all that is sensitive to common sense and best choices.
Many are entrenched with habits that seem like a ‘fasting in selfishness’. Do you avoid giving when taking give more pleasure? There is no empathy or compassion in that. Human kind is deeply programmed to get what they can, and ignore others. There was an Obituary printed in the London Times…Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
Ask yourself, is there a gap between the best possible use of empathy and compassion, and just saying them? Walking the talk is to put into action positive thoughts that are just like soap bubbles unless applied. Following the truth is filled with compassion and empathy and in action. Positivity grows in positive ways when used, and negativity gives birth to more negativity. Empathy is relating to people through the heart. This is possible only if the mind is silent, if there are no thoughts in the mind,the door to the heart can be opened. But ordinarily you are so full of thoughts there is no way to be sensitive.
The brain needs detoxing of the negativity and fog that accumulates within it. The mind becomes full of splinters or like barnacles on a boat. Your whole energy has been diverted by the educational system, by religious teaching, by political ideologies and social morays. Life as well as love has been forced to go directly to the head and bypass the heart. Slowly slowly you start living without the heart. And to live without the heart is to die a slow death and not to live at all. Slow suicide is no answer to the blessings of given life at this time no matter the hardships, or even the apathy to recognize it. The best chance you have for the best life and love is right here and now!
