Have you ever had a highly intellectual conversation with someone about love, but their energy felt completely the opposite?
What I have found in speaking with hundreds of people interested in spirituality online and offline is that there is a MAJOR difference between understanding spirituality intellectually in thoughts and embodying what you know to be true.
I know that the deeper you ground yourself into presence the more naturally, spontaneously and effortlessly compassionate you become towards everything existence.
I’ve listened to people whose words and sentences sounded beyond profound when it comes to knowing who you are, and yet time and time again their energy felt HOT, not peaceful and agitated.
And the deeper you ground yourself into the now, into The Self ‘biologically’ the deeper at peace you are with all that is.
Compassion is born effortlessly as you heal your trauma. In fact, it is because you have healed from your trauma that compassion naturally births itself into your every heart.
And trauma is healed by knowing The Self, and knowing that now.
If you read a hundred books on being here, or knowing The Self but only stays in the intellect than you know all about presence but not know it immediately and directly on a cellular level.
And if you do not know it on a cellular level, then you will sound intellectually conscious, but not conscious and thus not naturally compassionate.
You may experience bursts of presence, but are not fully embodying it.
The more you fully embody presence deeply in the body the more you fully embody compassion, sympathy, empathy, and kindheartedness.
If you have a lot of trauma you may search to be kind to people with the hopes that it will heal you from your pain, which is good but the energy behind it won’t feel soothing to the receiver.
Whereas had you healed from your trauma from grounding yourself into the now, then your interactions with people will have a healing effect on them.
Here is how that looks using mathematics.
An intellectual person would be able to sit and look at a math problem, wrap it around in his/her head, grasp, analyze it and after enough investigation come up with the correct answer. The answer would compassion, gentleness and tenderness.
These words don’t mean much though, if you are someone who is rigid, constantly resisting ‘what is’, wanting to fight to be right, fighting to win and feeling like you need to overcome your opponents.
Whereas someone who is grounded in the now, anchored deeply here will look at that same math equation and without thinking twice about ‘SHOW’ compassion in their energy field.
They didn’t need to analyze a long math equation for their aura to vibrate a high energy level.
In fact, it is all this analyzing with the mind that is keeping our trauma alive. It is trying to be too spiritual, too spiritually “advanced” whatever that means, too awake, to anything that is keeping our trauma going.
When ‘spirituality’ becomes more important than ‘now’ then compassion is not born, because we are still trying to be defined by something.
When the ‘now’ becomes the most important thing, (no-thing) then we know we are the now, and thus we merge with compassion which is DEFINELESS.
Unbound by anything that your mind can grasp, or grab a hold onto as a concept.
The word fire is not hot, because you cannot feel the word directly.
The word sweet is not something that you can taste directly.
So even words like presence, The Self, compassion do not mean any unless you look past them, or at the space in between each letter and each word.
You will come to know that just like gratitude, just like space, Beingness, reality, existence, source it’s all pointing to the same no-thingness.
Once you see for yourself, the self then you see the Self is 100% unconditionally compassionate for all of existence and no thought is involved.
The Self is all there is, so thus it is 100% unconditional compassion for itself.
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ― Albert Einstein
There have been times in meditation, that for whatever reason that particular session I let go of thought, and effortlessly grounded into the now.
And the thoughts that did come in, I AM Absolutely in love with all that is.
I am absolutely in deep unconditional love with the universe. The “i”, unconditional love and universe are one.
And it’s because for that moment, I had zero trauma. I had zero desire, zero want, nothing but a living breathing gratitude for all of existence.
It was as if, had I died physically right in that present moment, not only would have my life been complete right now, but it would have been complete even IF I had ever been born physically to begin with.
It had felt as if, even if I was never born in this world the world would still be 1000% complete.
That feeling of eternal, infinite peace came in those spontaneous instants. It was something I analyzed it just hit me, and the me (self-image) went away in that direct moment.
Compassion is self-less, without self-image-awareness.
No individual somebody who’s compassionate. This logically projects to the external world, but in the internal world there is no somebody, there is ideas of you being anything, not even here, not even The Self, not even compassionate.
No desire or the lack of desire. No attachment or the absence of attachment.
No ideas at all. No concepts at all. No needing and not not-needing at all.
True compassion is born, when you don’t even realize that’s appearing you’re in vibration & frequency.
not matter how long you are spending on the earth; how much money you have
gathered or how much attention you have received. It is the amount of positive
vibration you have radiated in life that matters,”
