Obviously Compassionate

Obviously Compassionate
We’ve talked about having compassion for others and how you never know what someone is going through. But that is more internal then anything, right? What I mean by that is, compassion is usually something that we think about in our heads… but what about the things that we say. For example, someone may not be on your level at finding the good (what we talked about yesterday) in everything. Therefore when speaking to you, who is able to find the good, may feel resentful or beneath your spiritual accomplishments. The point I’m trying to make is be obviously compassionate to others spiritual plain(s).

There’s nothing worse then someone who is trying to help, stabbing you in the face with their overbearing sense of self. (LOL) Read that again, that was good. Love is gentle and kind, not trying to prove a point. Love accepts, respects, and uplifts. Love is Love.

It is Friday!... O yeah, it’s Friday. LOVE this weekend and tell me about the Joy on Monday. MUAH

    Compassion comes deep within your heart and soul,you have to feel it to give and recieve.

  3. That's why it's important to listen until your advice or input is asked for!! That's how you end up with that "stabbing you in the face" result!!!

  4. Compassion is definitely from deep within like Kathy said, its more than just a decision to think compassionate thoughts (if thats even possible).
    "Love doesnt try to prove a point" I think this is very important for people to realize. I know some people think they have good intentions but "saying the right thing, the perfect advise" isnt always the same as compassion. Sometimes love doesnt say anything at all. Sometimes love just shows up and wraps itself around you and the other person in a silent beautiful understanding.

  5. From my experience, I believe that a person has to have a truly open mind and open heart to be able to be compassionate...and you're are soooooo right, with out judgementalism....I believe that God uses people to minister to other people, alot of times when we don't even know that we are touching another person's need..Open heart, open mind and the compassionate and transforming Christ-mind..Peace

  6. Wow...lightbulbs going off. I have this problem. I'm always looking for and pointing out the good. My husband is always looking for and pointing out the bad. There are times that he doesn't talk to me about things because he just wants me to listen to him and say...you're right, that sucks. But I can't because I'm always trying to "fix" the bad mood or bad situation by putting a positive spin on it. I never looked at it quite like that....that he may be resentful that I can do it and he can't.

  8. You guys posts are awesome! Compassion does come from the heart. Remember though that we are predestined to be ALL of this and more (LOVE),so te difficulty comes in the form of doubting who and what we are. Hmmmm. :0)
    @Robbie, try not to understand... That's deep think about it for a second and get back to me. MUAH

  9. I'm getting from "try not to understand" to listen but not try to fix. Is that where your thoughts are? I saw (I think from you of your videos?)that you are in school for psychology. I'm 37 and just finished my associates degree in that field. I'm going on to Bachelor's this fall and hope to major in Health Psychology! Good luck to you...you will be awesome in that field!
