How is Empathy showing up?

Our Mission is to find it... and spread it

Empathy is the mirror at the point of inertia that transforms our pain to love. As we push out into the universe, we know that we are the universe, and more. When love is the driving force of passion.....it conquers all, because it is our nature. Our mission is to find it...and spread it.

One of the latest and most fascinating discoveries in neuroscience is the mirror neuron. The mirror neurons in our brain are literally mirror images of all other neurons. Their function is to allow the observer an empathetic connection to the observed. These neurons are also used in developmental stages to install learned behavior through mimicry. We are in a most crucial time for humanity as a whole. It's time to go from survive to thrive. Let's flip the switch to awaken and use these precious mirror neurons for empathy. Through empathy we gain understanding, which leads to less fear and judgment of each other, which leads to unity. If we push everyone up, we have nowhere to go but with them. Thrive.~ Sarma Katemillion
Is it Logical? Conscious? Responsive?
If the eyes are the gateway...

If the eyes are the gateway to the soul then the hands are the pathway to the heart. You see my entire life I never really understood why I "cared" so much. My mother use to tell me I need to protect my heart more. She use to say I wore it on my sleeve. In my mind I always thought that the only one that can hurt me is me. Being a teenager and feeling everything around me use to scare the hell out of me. Just as a child can give practically anything a soul by using their imagination, we too can bring others to life with our light and love.
It is hard to understand that we are both the individual and the whole at the same time. However understanding that white implies black, self implies other and hot creates cold gives us the opportunity to find a balance. You see we create this world as we observe it. Although we came out of this world we are surely not of this world. Those who truly are empathetic know this to be true. Most lack the knowledge and understanding to free themselves of the self imposed chains society embedded in our subconsciousness. Just as light always takes the path of least resistance at times we can choose the easy way for the sake of convenience. The difference with light is the way it knows the path of least resistance is by taking EVERY possible path.
So if we seek truth as we seek air, not focused on it but surely attaining it, then we might understand the truth of truths. What we choose to believe is what becomes true to us & since our reality is all that is we must be careful of what others accept as truth. So I mind you to be aware and have empathy for those who are extra sensitive to this outside world. For some know in their heart of hearts they are not from here. Surly we all came from the same place and there we shall return. The only question is will you continue to move forward and continuously grow your soul to be perfect like our father is perfect? ~ Mike O'Neill
What about Empathy Boundaries?
EMPATHY: When is "truth" a lie?
Using Empathy to Promote Unity
| || |
The virtue of Empathy is the experience of reading, with all six senses (intuition being the sixth and most important) another’s person's pain, joy, insecurities, and overall condition from their own perspective. It is having the ability to engage that perspective within oneself like it is one’s own. It is centered more around listening “intently” to others, without comparison or judgment of any kind, rather than speaking or telling them who you “think” they are such as what psychics or fortune tellers do.
The concept and practice of Empathy includes no other action other than listening, reading, feeling, and learning to identify what empowers another. Empathy’s counterproductive vice is judgmental indifference. In other words, one is incapable of engaging empathy and judgmental indifference simultaneously. It is either one or the other, period. Contemporary culture often appears to be socializing people into becoming more individualistic or self-centered rather than empathetic and unified. However scientific research has discovered and documented as valid the existence of "mirror neurons”, which react to emotions expressed by others allowing the empathetic listener a mirrored experience, if that listener accepts that experience without injecting their own personal feelings.
Experiencing empathy requires directing our awareness to a place that our mind does not go of its own accord-to what it feels like to be another person-lingering there for a moment to register that person’s emotional and cognitive landscape, and then returning to our own reality. Empathy comes more naturally to some than it does to others. However, by taking time to truly paint a picture of what it is like for the other person, without judging which is counterproductive to the empathetic process, and imagine ourselves in their place, feeling what they feel, we gain valuable insight and forge deeper connections to everyone in our midst, and at the same time we strengthen, through our example, the truth that authentic love is always “unconditional”, and BOOM, the best case for promoting unity of all people has risen. ~ Randall Corley

Empathy is a compass. It is what holds us to our senses and animate the trigger point where mirror neurons drive the mass, to mobilize the machine we have learned is "me". I however, and you too, are so much more than that. Empathy is our Angel I have walked beside mine all my life. For me, she sits in my solar-plexus and is infinitely connected to Source and every single chakra that makes me, ME.
Empathy has the power to take me to the heights of divinity and she drags me to the pits of hell if I let her. Not only do I do this with and to ourself, we take it on from others too. We are not taught about EMPATHS OR NARCISSISTS, nor are we taught about the importance of setting clear boundaries. With Empathy at the helm, I protect my time & energy, my heart and All my Relations. I honour my spirit and serve the Divine unity within me. That's my holy grail - to be in direct service with my Soul, for the Soul.
Our Central Nervous System might be what enables empathy to travel along our trajectory of infinite possibilities. It is here where we can open our radar for listening. For empaths, you will feel what I feel. When I communicate my love through the spirit of language, you will sense it’s purity. Learn to trust that. Empathy metabolizes (for lack of better word) differently for each of us. It fascinates me, how life experience impacts & manifests inward/outward vibration/emotion, and all that happens empathically.
The rub for me is that we have always been who we have been waiting for ~ we have been empathically distracted by all the pretty people & flashy things that our bodies habitually desire - we are waking to the Soul that exists within us. It’s never too late to open the door and there is no missing out. You see, our potential begins right here, right NOW whenever that is for you. Empathetic to our own journey first, learn to listen with your empathy, in the purity of the high heart, where the compass points to unity as body, mind & spirit learn to become One. <3 ~ Barbara
Like the phoenix rising from the ashes.
Heals the heart that knows the balm of mercy,
true power of empathy against adversity.
In the hand that takes the hand of reprobate,
is the wisdom that to forgive begins the end of hate.
Within the mind that leaves behind its enemy images,
dawns a light releasing us from shadow cages.
On the tongue that speaks no lie and knows no evil,
dwells the truth we are all One, we are all equal.
Power in the hand of every healer.
Power in the prayer of humble kneeler.
Power in the courage of dominion breaker.
Power in the hearts of each peace maker.
Know yourself in each and every other,
beyond all right and wrong sister and brother.
No gain in victory, illusion's clever ploy,
divide and conquer is but hollow joy.
The freeing truth, the peace that never dies within your heart, my heart,
my soul within yours lies your blood, my veins, your pulse in mine so strong
our bodies cosmic dust, the wheeling stars our song, we share the air,
our pain the same, my love your love in me you are Beloved, you are the One,
We are each other's prison key.
Be still and know that You are God and We are free.
