And yet so few people truly understand the meaning of Compassion. In literal language terms it means "to feel with" another. Or to encounter another "with feeling". Many people interpret this in emotional terms, assuming that it means to feel pity or kindness. But this is not so.
Compassion means to see with the Heart, or to see with feeling. The Heart is not the place of emotions, rather it is the seat of Universal Love within the Human Being. It is the place of Intuition and Spiritual Connection. The emotions associated with the Heart are Joy, Oneness and Bliss. So - to see with the Heart means to see the Oneness that you share with others. And in this recognition, to feel the bliss of the Universal Source within yourself through this connection and service.
So, service based on compassion is not "helping" or even "teaching", so much as a "sharing" based on the joy of common human experience. This may be called "healing", since it awakens in others a sense of their common humanity and "oneness" within the human family.
Thus, to see with Compassion means to see Joy. If something or someone brings joy, fun, peace, love and serenity, then it is being experienced from the heart. If, however, you are experiencing or seeing sorrow, grief, and pain, then you are experiencing with the emotions. These are illusionary states produced by the ego mind that cannot understand Oneness. They are not real. Only Universal Love is Real.
But, on your planet so many understand Compassion to mean "helping" those less fortunate. And while this kind of work is indeed admirable and necessary, it is considered to be Charity, and is not the fundamental meaning of Compassionate Service. Your planet is addicted to states of pain and grief and sorrow. Your news services are filled with disaster and death, and so you confuse emotional responses of pity and fellow-feeling with Compassion.
Dearest ones, understand that Compassion is Spiritual Service. To find Joy and Peace within yourself and to pass it on to others. This means that you will need to release addictions to disasters and suffering and dramas of pain. Do not create them in your own lives and do not support them in the lives of others.
Rather - focus your Compassionate Hearts on bringing positive energies and love and the Message of Hope and Unity to all those you meet.
This is Compassion!
The New Earth will be based on the understanding on Compassion. On living this truth - that only Love is real and that only Love and Sharing are true and valid experiences.
We ask you, beloved ones, to remember this as you go about your service to the Planet in the next Cycle.
