Default Re: Empathy

The first step in spiritual life is to have compassion. A person who is kind and loving never needs to go searching for God. God rushes toward any heart that beats with compassion-it is God's favorite place.

thank you mudra...I have heard this phenomenon of empathy/love among predator/prey is happening more frequently now, could it be a reflection of the love/light frequencies coming to our planet manifesting in our beautiful animals?

The answer always lies in the wisdom of the heart


Much Love & Light,
Truth

Default Re: Empathy

The following story was sent to me by Tango ...
I share it with you

In Phoenix , Arizona , a 26-year-old mother stared down

At her 6 year old son, who was dying of terminal leukemia.

Although her heart was filled with sadness,

She also had a strong feeling of determination.
Like any parent, she wanted her son to grow up &
Fulfill all his dreams. Now that was no longer possible..


The leukemia would see to that. But she still
Wanted her son's dream to come true....

She took her son' s hand and asked,
'Billy, did you ever think about what you wanted
To be once you grew up?
Did you ever dream and wish what you would
Do with your life?'

Mommy, 'I always wanted to be a fireman
When I grew up.'

Mom smiled back and said, 'Let's see if we can
Make your wish come true.'

Later that day she went to her local fire
Department in Phoenix , A rizona , where she met
Fireman Bob, who had a heart as big as Phoenix

She explained her son's final wish and
Asked if it might be possible
To give her 6 year-old son a ride around the block on a fire engine

Fireman Bob said, 'Look, we can do
Better than that. If you'll have your son ready at
Seven o'clock Wednesday morning, we'll make
Him an honorary Fireman for the whole day.
He can come down to the fire station, eat with us,
Go out on all the fire calls, the whole nine yards!

And if you'll give us his sizes, we'll get a real fire uniform
For him, with a real fire hat - not a toy -- one-with the emblem of the Phoenix Fire Department on it, a yellow slicker like we wear and rubber boots.'

'They're all manufactured right here in Phoenix ,
So we can get them fast.'



Three days later Fireman Bob picked up Billy,
Dressed him in his uniform and escorted him from his hospital bed t o the waiting hook and ladder truck.

Billy got to sit on the back of the truck
And help steer it back to the fire station.
He was in heaven.


There were three fire calls in Phoenix that day
And Billy got to go out on all three calls.

He rode in the different fire engines,
The Paramedic's' van,
And even the fire chief's car.

He was also videotaped for the
Local news program.

Having his dream come true,
With all the love and attention that was lavished upon him, so deeply touched Billy, that he lived three months longer than any doctor thought possible.

One night all of his vital signs began to
Drop dramatically and the head nurse, who believed
In the hospice concept - that no one should die alone, began to call the family members to the hospital.

Then she remembered the day Billy had spent
As a Fireman, so she called the Fire Chief and
Asked if it would be possible to send a fireman
In uniform to the hospital to be with Billy as he made his transition.

The chief replied, 'We can do better than that.
We'll be there in five minutes.. Will you please do me a favor?

When you hear the sirens screaming and see the
Lights flashing, will you announce over the
PA system that there is not a fire?'

'It's the department coming to see one of its finest members one more time. And will
You open the window to his room?'

About five minutes later a
Hook and ladder truck arrived at the hospital and extended its ladder up to Billy's third floor open window--------
16 fire-fighters climbed up the ladder into Billy's room

With his mother's permission, they hugged him and held him and told him how much they LOVED him.

With
His dying breath,
Billy looked up at the fire chief and said,

'Chief, am I really a fireman now?'

'Billy, you are, and
The Head Chief,
Jesus, is holding your hand,' the chief said


With those words, Billy smiled and said,
'I know, He's
Been holding my hand all day, and
The angels have been
Singing..'

He closed his eyes one last time.




My
Instructions were to send this to at least four
People that I
Wanted God to bless and I picked you.

Please pass this to at
Least four people you
Want
To be blessed.
This
Story is powerful and there is nothing attached,
PLEASE
Do not break this pattern;
Uplifting stories are one of the best
Gifts we receive.
There is no cost, but a lot of rewards, let's

Continue to uplift one another~
Pass this story on.

Default Re: Empathy

Empathy in Action
An Experiment in Gratitude

Sometimes we forget to take the time to recognize the richness that defines our lives. This may be because many of the messages we encounter as we go about our affairs prompt us to think about what we don’t have rather than all the abundance we do enjoy. Consequently, our gratitude exists in perpetual conflict with our desire for more, whether we crave time, convenience, wealth, or enlightenment. Yet understanding and truly appreciating our blessings can be as simple as walking a mile in another’s shoes for a short period of time. Because many of us lead comparatively insular lives, we may not comprehend the full scope of our prosperity that is relative to our sisters and brothers in humanity.

If you find taking an inventory of your life’s blessings difficult, consider the ease with which you nourish your body and mind, feed your family, move from place to place, and attend to tasks at hand. For a great number of people, activities you may take for granted, such as attaining an education, buying healthy food, commuting to work, or keeping a clean house, represent great challenges. To experience firsthand the complex tests others face as a matter of course in their daily lives, try living without the amenities you most often take for granted. This can be a great experiment to undertake with your entire family or a classroom. Understanding working poverty can be as easy as endeavoring to buy nutritious foods with a budget of $100 for the week. If you own a car, relying on public transportation for even just a day can help you see the true value of the comfort and conveniences others do without. As you explore a life without things you may normally take for granted, ask yourself for how long you could endure.

The compassionate gratitude that floods your heart when you come to fully realize your abundance may awaken pangs of guilt in your heart. Be aware, however, that the purpose of such an experiment is to open your heart further in gratitude and compassion. This awareness can help you attain a deeper level of gratitude that will allow you to savor and, above all, appreciate your life with renewed grace.

Love Always

Much Love & Light,

Hi Truth, thanks for the post

i think love/light frequences are beginning to show amongst us humans too.
this is what happened the day before yesterday on the bus on my way to work:

i climbed up the upper deck of the bus and there i detected an irresistible smell of fresh coffee (I love coffee, my favourite)..so as i was naturally following the coffee smell trail i noticed an arabic lady drinking her coffee out of a beautiful little china cup..how lovely i thought to myself that she also bothered to take the china cup from home and sat down a little distance away so not to bother her with my presence..she was totally lovely looking i kept noticing ..i looked away and through the window for a second or two and the neXt thing i saW WAS her fair hand offering me a cup of cofffee..miracles don't stop to happen i thought to myself and of course i gladly accepted..i wondered how o earth could she planned for someone else and carry another cup..she hardly spoke a word of engilsh, we tried speaking but i only learned that sHE comes from saudi arabia, nothing else...right in the middle of us enjoying the coffee an angelic voice was started singing a tune somewhere at the back of where we were sitting..i looked a nd saw a young girl singing to herself ..she had a truly beautiful voice..maybe a professional singer, that's how beautifully she sang...the whole experience was magical..

i live in a really big town where people don't speak to each other much - particularly not on buses..

i wish it on all of you

bestest

Lightblue that is such a lovely story and an inspiring one too ..
I recently lived something similar the other way around ..
I was waiting for the bus and had opened a pack of dried mangos
happily eating them .. an old lady was sitting on a bench and was
looking at me with the eyes of a kid watching cakes in a pastry shop..
I handed the pack to her and had her take some ...
The mango slices would stick together . So it happened
the lump she took nearly emptied half of my pack ..
I laughed and smiled at her buldging contented eyes .. She made my day really

Love from me
mudra

I believe it's one of those blessed moments one never forgets.
One of these moments that give life an irresistible flavour and makes us remember we and our brothers and sisters are One.

Love for You.

Children of the World, The
by: Atira Hatton, Angels and Miracles...


On my latest trip to Egypt something happened that I would like to share with you. This incident is based on my belief that the children of the world are mine and yours.

One morning as I walked to the souk (street where vendors sell things in small shops) I saw a little street person. She was only 4 or 5 years old.

This tiny child was picking up old, half-eaten bread from the dirty street and eating it.

She was not asking people for money, she was foraging for food. When I saw this, I knew I had to do something.

I went over and, in my best half-Arabic and half-English, I tried to speak with her.

The dirty little street child looked up with beautiful brown eyes and stared at me.

She stepped back, frightened, so I took her small hand in mine and walked along the shops asking in Arabic, "Do you speak English?" until I found a man who said, "Yes, why?"

I asked the man to tell the little girl that if she would follow me to the nearest food cart, I would buy her food. He asked me why I would do such a thing for a beggar.

I told him that she had not begged me for anything and she was eating off the street.

He told the little girl what I had said. Then I asked him, "How much should it cost me for the pocket bread with beans in it?" he smiled and explained two pounds, or about 50 cents.
