Why is it significant to have Conscious Compassion?
Conscious Compassion is significant because it is a fusion of LOVE and FORGIVENESS that creates the greatest Alchemy (an evidenced transformation) in a person's life. Together (love & forgiveness) transform conditions, sentences, diagnosis, challenges, and any other ailments that are ready to be healed. In this lesson you will have an opportunity to dive into a deeper understanding of why Conscious Compassion is important and relevant through biblical stories such as the Prodigal Son in the book of Luke. This is where you, as the reader, are given an opportunity to assess the deeper intricacies of your heart and understand why this means so much to God. Your relationship results depend on it.
What is Conscious Compassion?
Conscious Compassion is a selfless posture of understanding. It is a mindful demonstration of the heart that brings about sympathy or care for another human being by thoughtful actions. It's consciously being aware of how you can help and serve others. It is primed first by an inward initiation of feelings from the heart and then demonstrated with an outward expression of love and/or forgiveness. In this lesson you will deep dive into understanding the heart of another while learning to forgive yourself regardless of the offense. It is only from this place of understanding and awareness you will begin to discover what's been really holding you back from the relationships you've always desired for your life.
What "if" you identified when you were listening to others and found yourself thinking of what you were going to say by the time they were done talking? Was that conscious compassion? I think not. Do you find yourself feeling more about how you feel when talking with others, rather than how they feel? Is that conscious compassion? I think not. What "if" you were to exercise your "conscious compassion" heart muscle? What would be different? Would your relationships improve? In this lesson, you will learn how to begin this process, along with some practical tools to allow you to exercise your conscious compassion muscle.
The Dalai Lama once said, "If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." The lesson here is life without compassion is no life at all worth living. Allow us to help you develop a greater conscious compassion.
In order for LOVE to be fulfilled one MUST display COMPASSION. Compassion is an expression of love. Therefore, in order to love we are compelled to be concerned of the well being of others (Compassion). “Above all, maintain constant love for one another, since love covers a multitude of sin.” - 1 Peter 4:8.
Nugget #1 - Research shows that compassionate people are happier. Couples that are compassionate with one another have more joy and understanding in their relationships. Compassion, a combination of empathy, concern, kindness, and consideration, is a cornerstone for those wanting a fulfilled love life.
Nugget #2 - Compassion is a learned process of recognizing that we are all on a journey - learning, growing, discovering, finding, reaching, and figuring out our own plan.
Nugget #3 - Why is compassion important in love? Without compassion, a relationship can become harsher. When that happens, your interactions are less caring, and you may start to build the 3Rs of resistance, resentment and revenge. Therefore, developing and expressing your compassion creates a safe zone for your love and for all the feelings and issues that may arise in your life.
Nugget #4 - Compassion is often thought of as a type of concern for the welfare and well-being of others. Compassion may not require a focused love to exist but is often considered a form of love in and of itself: a love for humankind as well as for our enemies.
Nugget #5 - If we are too love UNCONDITIONALLY as Jesus loved, then we must display compassion.
In the purest sense, unconditional love is about caring about the happiness of another person without any concern for how it benefits you. It is also sometimes referred to as compassionate love.
Nugget #6 - The greatest lesson of compassion is to love and forgive yourself. Only then do you have the bandwidth or capacity to love and / or forgive others.
Nugget #7 - We live a world of “duality.” Night / day, Sun & moon, Men & Women, Left & Right, etc. We remember and forget, we hide and get found, we hurt and heal, we love ourselves & self-sabotage; therefore, there is no right or wrong in the way of contrast, ONLY LEARNINGS! How can we measure pleasure without pain? It is when you can respect another’s model of the world, regardless of what they’ve done or said that has hurt us while choosing to “love” and “forgive” is the ultimate COMPASSION.
“If you want others to BE happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
- Dalai Lama
Going Deeper in the Word
How we ought to be towards others
“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
“Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience”
1 Peter 3:8
“Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.”
“Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.”
How Jesus showed compassion
“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
“When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.”
“And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.”
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
“As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.”
