Have you ever felt so much compassion for someone or something that you just had to help, donate, or just be with to show them that things were going to be okay? This is the magic, the purpose of why we feel and have a soul...
The following, is a passage from our soon to be released e-book, "C Yourself To The Top". We are going to make this book available for free here on this website. Compassion is one of the C letter words that we have used in our 5 C letter word strategies to propel yourself to where you want to go or what you would like to achieve.
Compassion Is defined as- a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.
“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want
to be happy, practice compassion.”
Early in our awareness of aligning with our minds and creating results for ourselves by using the power of the clarity of intention, we found that people that have the intention to serve also have a high level of compassion. Like the definition states, you must be able to understand someone’s pain or misfortunes before you attempt to walk in their shoes. As long time school counselors, we understood the concept of compassion, but we realized that we had more to learn. We learned that everyone has a story and that everyone deals with the 100,000 plus thoughts that they automatically think about on a daily basis. We realized that we were only seeing 10 percent of the person most of the time and not the entire spiritual person due to the fear associated with their existence.
We understood that if we wanted to make a bigger impact on a person’s life, we would have to take the attitude of treating and seeing everyone for the person that they can become, are becoming, and wish to become and meet them where they are on their journey. We showed respect, love, and compassion which usually led to an easier
and more productive conversation. We took on this approach also because we understood that if the tables were turned, we too would expect someone to meet us where we were at on our own personal journey and to be shown compassion. We wouldn’t want someone to assume that we would be asking or wanting their help with
anything. We would also feel much better if people expressed respect and took the time to understand where we might be in our level of our understanding life the way we do and why.
What we also discovered was that we all have a coping mechanism in place in order to protect ourselves based on the beliefs that we have embraced and held on to so tightly for fear of being judged, ridiculed, or bullied because of our inadequacies. For this reason alone, we felt that displaying compassion for others is very important especially when you start to change the way you see and feel about yourself and the world. When
you receive the gift of awareness, you are going to be so determined to share it with the world and want to have them feel like you do, but we want to remind you that the student will seek out the teacher when they are ready. Some people may be ready, but it is going to be your approach that may be the reason why they are not opening up to you, but they will eventually open up when the approach is in line with their mindset and if it comes from a place of compassion.
With that said, "Put a little MaxPower in your life!"
