9.The power of compassion

Wisdom of the heart

Compassion is wisdom of the heart. It is loving kindness that is guided from the higher self and acts for the good of all.

Without wisdom compassion has no boundaries, thus it is about showing love and kindness while knowing people are responsible for their own lives. It does not mean you support their behaviour, but rather you allow them to have their own their experiences without attachment. This means you have compassion for their suffering, not their actions.

Compassion is often confused with empathy. Empathy is more about putting yourself in the place of another thus to understand. However, a person with compassion will usually have empathy.

Compassion is more about wanting to help ease suffering. We are all here to learn compassion and the developing of it brings inner peace.

True compassion is not manifested out of wanting to help those who have less than you, but rather from the realisation we are one with all beings. Much of compassion is more about one’s state of being rather than physically doing, thus it does not always require one to act on their feelings of compassion and can be more about intent and approach to life.

A compassionate heart treats all even handed. A person with compassion takes responsibility for their own lives and does not blame others for their suffering, knowing it is part of their growth.

You often recognise those with compassion in their hearts, not by what they are doing so much, but by the essence of their energy and being. People are often drawn to others that radiate that energy in their hearts, because they feel included in their universal heart.
