#40 Compassion Matters

It is 3AM in the morning. And after months of thinking about writing this blog, I felt pushed out of bed to finally do it.

In short, it is sympathy, empathy, compassion that has been on my mind. I wound up sorting it out this way. When witnessing or becoming aware of a disaster, tragedy, someone’s crisis, the response may be;

Sympathy – meaning, that it is too bad, that is awful.

It could be empathy – meaning the experience of feeling what the people involved may be going through.

It could be compassion – meaning, being connected on the plane of Oneness, where we are all entangled, entrained. On that level of vibration, we calmly, peacefully, gently, patiently radiate Light and Love. That’s it. To simply be present, trusting that our contribution, to the web of life, will support the intended outcome.

A George Fox (Quaker) quote captures a sense of this for me.

“….I saw, also, that there was an ocean of darkness and death; but an infinite ocean of light and love, which flowed over the ocean of darkness. In that also I saw the infinite love of God, and I had great openings.”

Dear Ones, let us join together and pour our light and love over the darkness. Let us be aware of the Great Love that holds us always. Let us remember that we ARE One.

In loving companionship on this magnificent journey,
