Compass-I-on

I have been guided to write a blog on compassion and as I sit here to contemplate this word and its meaning, I can’t help but believe that we all carry compassion in our hearts.  The question is, do we all use it and why must we use it?

I AM:  My dear one I instructed you to title this writing as “compass-I-on” because not all have the same inner compass turned on to show another or to give another the gift of sharing their inner love .  Some think it’s not right to get involved with someone elses feeling of hurt or concern as you may be over stepping your boundaries as to their life or cultural beliefs…But, I say unto you that NO one is exempt from a human heart and conscious.  What brings one verses another the heart of compassion is the choice to know that you all are ONE..but this my dear one is hard for your species to comprehend..you see each other as separate..which is not by your choice, but by the cultural of the whole … 

Genuine compassion is based not on your own projections and expectations, but rather on the rights of the other: irrespective of whether another person is a close friend or an enemy, as long as that person wishes for peace and happiness and wishes to overcome suffering, then on that basis you develop a genuine concern for his or her problems. This is genuine compass-I-on.  Their compass is on, but it has a misguided flavor  to it !!

Usually when one is concerned about a close friend, you call this compassion. This is not compassion; it is attachment. Even in marriage, those marriages that last only a short time, do so because of attachment . Marriages that last only a short time do so because of a lack of compassion; there is only emotional attachment based on projection and expectation. When the only bond between close friends is attachment, then even a minor issue may cause one´s projections to change. As soon as our projections change, the attachment disappears, because that attachment was based solely on projection and expectation. 

It is possible to have compassion without attachement, and similarly, to have anger without hatred. Therefore you need to clarify the distinctions between compassion and attachment, and between anger and hatred. Such clarity is useful in your daily life and in your efforts toward world peace. This is what I consider these to be basic spiritual values for the happiness of all human beings, regardless of whether one is a believer or a nonbeliever.”
