Default Empathy


Transllation

One day on Earth…

Empathy is a notion designating a mechanism through which an individual can understand
The feelings and emotions of another individual.
The ability to identify yourself to another and to feel what he feels
His feelings and in particular his suffering and distress
An emotion much bigger than beliefs and differences
That unables us to enter in the perceptions of another, to feel his fear, his anger , his tenderness
To temporarily live his life and to move into it with care and without judgement
To look for common points before the differences
And there are always more common points than differences
The essence , the heart and the soul
The human warmth is when you offer yourself without expecting anything in return
Simply share so as not to spoil a life
And to help those that don’t have that ability
And despite all difficulties keep that force , that will
give a heart blow to those who need it
Just a litle attention
And give the right to everyone to exist
A feeling much higher than instinct and the food chain
A feeling that unables us to take care of another
And to share the litle we possess
And to help each other to keep warm
Or to protect one another
Be able to share happiness, tenderness, protection and complicity
We all need human warmth
We all need affection and to feel at home amongst our brothers
Despite appearances without ever relying on the outside look only
Without ever minding language
Because it is something invisible to the eye but that is not without fragrance

Final definition

Science has proved that the difference between man and animal was exactly empathy
BUT.. BUT… BUT
Homicide …
Guilt…
Iniquity …
I am well aware that with this video I invite some to question themselves
But to question oneself is to put oneself in command of one’ s life and to realize we
Have lost the foundation of humanity
Actually speaking of empathy .. between men or between animals ...?


Love Always
mudra

Empathy
Author: George Eliot (English novelist)

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible
Comfort of feeling safe with a person,
Having neither to weight thoughts,
Nor measure words--but pouring them
All right out--just as they are
Chaff and grain together,
Certain that a faithful hand will
Take and sift them,
Keep what is worth keeping,
And with the breath of kindness
Blow the rest away.

love and light to you mudra

This is a fantastic lesson to us all, we lock these creatures away for our amusement in zoos etc. They could well be the teachers we are waiting for to show us the way to harmony, empathy and living together as creatures of this earth.

Thankyou Mudra, a simply fantastic find..

None of us has gotten where we are solely by pulling ourselves up from our own bootstraps. We got here because somebody bent down and helped us.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

Your words are always so full of wisdom I thank you for putting this out here and the added remarks as so many times they go without acknowledgement. Thats a shame in itself

You have a very kindred spirit

Blessings Beloved All,

Empathy, like all gifts from the soul, is a double edged sword.
Just as my smile will be infused into others, so their frown can invade me.

So smile often.

All Love,

Give as the rose gives perfume,
Because it is its own nature,
Utterly unconscious of giving.

So like you, Mudra. Thanks for the gift of this very special video. The essence of it will play in my heart all day.

The elephant and the monk: a story of compassion

Once there lived a strong, young elephant named Meruprabh. One day a part of a huge forest caught fire and the fire spread rapidly, fanned by strong winds. The animals were scared.

When would the fire stop? Meruprabh along with 700 other elephants cleared one part of the forest of vegetation to prevent the fire from spreading. This clearing became a haven for animals seeking shelter from the fire and they huddled there till the fire went out. Animals who normally hunted each other now sat or stood close in amity. Fear was palpable.

Love Always

A true story of two lost dogs as read by author Rose De Dan to her dog, Puma, from her book "Tails of a Healer: Animals, Reiki and Shamanism." The events in this story took place in Worcester, Mass. several years before the author took any formal training in animal communication.

Inspired by the Dalai Lama and his focus on compassionate living, this video lovingly portrays the miracles that can happen when you communicate from your heart.

Thanks for watching!

Love Always
