But remain very mindful that your frequency stays grounded in genuine care and compassion rather than sympathy, overwhelm, and care-taking. How do we accomplish this? Having compassion for yourself is vital. Recent research by the neuroscientist Tania Singer and the Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard has shown that meditation proves to reduce activation of the brain networks associated with simulating the feelings of people in distress, in favor of networks associated with feelings of social affiliation. In other words, shared pain rapidly dissipates, but compassion remains. We are all angels born in hell.
How can you help?
The trick is to remember who we are and to balance the terror of being alive with the wonder of being alive right now. Then we see the beauty in absolutely everything…even the suffering. I think we signed up for it without hesitation in order to evolve our soul. That is what earthly incarnation is all about anyway, though this lifetime for all of us is undeniably the fast-track version! What we can always do is give thanks, bless all, do good where we can….
I invite you to pay close attention to your energy when faced with the suffering of others. Whether you see it unfolding with someone you love, on television, or even with an animal. True empathy and compassion is being able to feel the suffering of others and be of service but not become debilitated by it.
Helping others to help others is such a good thing. As always, your article came across synchronistic when my wife needs to support while visiting with relatives in Ecuador.
I emailed her the link, thanks, and blessings. Glad the post came to you with such synchronistic timing. Hope that it will be of some benefit to your wife in Ecuador. Ecuador is on my list as one of my top places to visit one day. I was in Cartagena a zillion years ago and loved it. We are human beings with the intrinsic, built-in empathic nature to respond to suffering.
The trick is to respond, not react. To take compassionate action through either prayer, donations, […]. Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
