Good Morning Dearest Guides. I look forward to your message today.
We are with you Dear One.
Let’s explore what it means to be compassionate.
To start, compassion is the ability to be with another, in their moments of challenge, with an open heart. Compassion sees the perfect being in another in those moments while simultaneously recognizing the lessons or purpose of their experience.
We can be with another without judging them for what is happening. We can love them in all those imperfect moments. We can be with them as moral and emotional support, that they may have something to lean on when unsteady.
To be compassionate requires an open heart, the ability to be present with another, be non-judgmentally open to listen deeply, and to just BE with them.
A stumbling block that may arise when we attempt to be compassionate is when we allow our emotional mind to step in. It is helpful to remember that when another is experiencing difficulties it is as if they are in a deep hole. It is our place NOT to get into the hole with them. This would not be helpful. We are there to provide another perspective from a higher place, in a sense providing a ladder and encouragement to climb up out of the hole.
So, to be compassionate with another is to be with them, pure of heart, lovingly, standing our ground in what is right for us, and without judgement of them in their experience. Be present, with love and strength.
Remember to be there in a compassionate way that you would like others to be with you. We are here to be in relationship, to help one another.
Compassion is a state of being. It does not require fully giving away your power or energy. Sometimes it may require healthy boundary setting to be in the best interest of all. This too is an expression of love, allowing another to learn what is required from their experience.
Our compassion is not only reserved for others. We must first and foremost be compassionate with oneself. Recognize that we too have lessons to learn, moments we falter, misinterpretation of facts resulting in less than desirable experiences. Have compassion for yourself in these moments. Allow love to rule.
Begin with compassion at home and walk a compassionate path in the world.
Go in peace and be with grace
