Spiritual Revolution: How to start having the real Compassion?
Updated: Jul 24
If we would have to quote the famous understanding of the public from Master Kuan Yin saying that compassion is "sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others". I think this statement can be a little being too egoistic. Why?
Why shall we gasp this concepts of others are in suffering? Are they really suffering? Shall we feel proud enough to go help others? We understands that compassion motivates people to go out of their way to help the physical, mental, or emotional pains of another and themselves, which is a good thing. But, people that are unwillingly to be helped cant be helped. Furthermore, we should not have a perception that "they"are suffering.
We are not saying that the concept of compassion from our beloved Master Kuan Yin is wrong, but we may have the misconception of the idea of compassion throughout our history, that leads to potential judgements of others. Which resulted on a perceptions of looking down, lower, of others that they are suffering. This constantly creates an impulse that you are the special one, that you are proud enough to go helping people. In return, this creates a bitch in you! And this will lead to hypocrisy, which is another topic. People will have a vibe that you are looking down on them, reluctantly this creates disharmony, trust and bad human connections. This creates the modern world charity associations and money associates issues. Of cause not all. In fact, these people are actually 100% happy with their life in whatever situation they are in. Our perceptions creates our world. "We think they need help!"
I think, the most beautiful way of seeing compassion is to see the best potential in everyone. Being compassionate is about accepting everything has a purpose that leads to the intention of the soul and monad without any judgement and personal opinions. Being compassionate is not about being sympathy, but it is a value of being able to accept anything and anyone without any opinions and see that everything is already perfect. Helping another is a practice, not an impulse. Instead of feeling compassionate to have the impulse to help another, we should have been having this habit of sharing, and caring throughout every moments of our life. Compassionate doesn't drives motivations, its not a verb, something to do, instead its something to innately being.
When we see the best in everyone in all situations, even when we offer help to them, the intention and energy promotes improvements, the focus is to get there, better situation. Rather saying, looking down, and feel pitiful, which is very hurtful. Seeing the best is others is the first step for being the real compassion. This opens up the potential of them, to ask for help if they need. And this is when they will 100% work on their life to get better. This concept works perfectly well for ourselves too. Be compassionate for thyself, see the best in you. You create your perception, you create your world. When we work on ourselves, we help people around us too, as a role model, as a warrior of life, and this value of compassionate infect others too.
What is not compassion?
Pity and looking down on others, and feeling they need help. In fact, they don't. How to judge?
What is compassion?
Being compassionate is a value of being able to accept anything and anyone without any opinions and see that everything is already perfect and having habit of sharing, and caring throughout every moments of our life.
How being compassionate can help others?
When we see the best in everyone in all situations, even when we offer help to them, the intention and energy promotes improvements, the focus is to get there, to better situation.
Can compassionate apply for self?
Yes! Be compassionate for myself, see the best in me. And I do not look down and judge myself. When we work on ourselves, we improve and we help people around us too, as a role model, as a warrior of life, and this value of compassionate infect others too.
I felt that this is really important to share. Because understanding the real compassion creates a real world within ourselves and improve interactions among us. Who would have love being judged and look down. We always work harder, and make improvement when our best potential are recognized. Helping others, and accepting help should be a practice, just like caring and sharing. It is the ego that halted us from doing so. Hope these will drive the little bitch in everyone out and creates a beautiful energy of seeing the best potential in your self and others with the eye of the real compassion.
Many love and Blessings.
