The idea/concept of ‘compassion‘ is more and more circulated around lately, and almost everywhere that you hear or see, about it somewhere, it usually has a different spin/meaning/interpretation, religious or not; Thus, in having perceived that so many Individuals may greatly benefit by having a clear understanding about this concept, and I would also benefit as well by the act of writing/clarifying/self-reminding this material for myself.
Presenting the concepts in a way very similar that it was presented to me in most of the E.T. transmissions and channelings that I’ve had the privilege to attract into my reality;
Starting with a quote from an E.T. First Contact Specialist / Ambassador transmission (Bashar):
“Compassion is recognizing that, in a way, it is similar to what you may think of as pride, but not in a negative sense; you are proud of them for the strength that they have to undergo the limitations that they have created for themselves. And you know that they have created it from their strength, and that they can chose something else if they desire to. But as long as they are in what they have chosen to be in, you have compassion for them as a fellow being who has chosen to express their strength in the manner they have chosen to do so. That is compassion.”

Other facets and perspectives are:
– Compassion is the recognition, that everyone is free to make their choices, and you support them wholly in the doing of that thing, because only by supporting their ability to make whatever choices they want, unconditionally, do you actually give them the best ability to choose something that might actually be to their benefit!
– You do not need to take responsibility for anyone else’s life (and this does not imply that you can not help if feeling like/wanting to help) – but only to be responsible in front of them, to be the best you that you know how to be;
– Is is also not about giving sympathy (described below) in order to reinforce the negativity they have already created with their misunderstanding of their connection to the Infinite (with their Beliefs of their lack of connection to the Infinite). Simply put: there is really no need to take on the emotional feelings of another person in order to be compassionate towards them or to care about how they are feeling. Just like in a little story that I recently heard, that was telling about a traveler who encounters a man suffering of pain, having on his chest a boulder that fell from a mountain, and if the traveler would’ve felt true sympathy, then he would not had the power to help and lift the boulder.. obviously, because thus he would have felt the same pain and suffering..
[Sympathy: coming from the Latin sympatha, from Greek: συμπάθεια transliterated as sympatheia, from συν + πάσχω = συμπάσχω) literally means: to suffer together or “feeling with.” It also can mean being affected by like feelings or emotions.]
– Compassion and Empathy are Empowering /
Pity or Sympathy are dis-empowering
– Compassion is representative of unconditional allowance.
– Vibrationally Speaking, unconditional Compassion is the equivalent of Appreciation
A RELEVANT E.T. CHANNELING/INTERACTION:
Bashar: Compassion does not mean you do not help, compassion simply means you do not take responsibility for them. Compassion means you live the life that is representative of who you are to the fullest, so you can be the best reflective example you can be to them. That is what helps them.
By all means interact with them. Compassion, in no way, shape or form, prevents you from interacting with individuals you attract into your life that may require some assistance, some guidance. There is nothing that says compassion cannot guide. There is nothing that says compassion cannot reflect. Are we not reflecting ideas to you?”
Q: Yes, you are.
Bashar: We know you create your own reality. But it is our compassion that allows us to desire to share with you that there are many ways you could create your reality. But in no way do we take responsibility for what you decide to choose, even after we have given you a reflection.
ANOTHER RELEVANT TRANSMISSION:
On ‘Why people suffer’
“Can you imagine a being so compassionate, so unconditionally loving that it will choose to live a life of suffering because it knows that if it does so, it will trigger in you the same compassion to make sure it will never happen again. Can you imagine that?
Understand of course that you have to look at it on a case by case basis, because there as many reasons why people are experiencing those kinds of lives as there are people experiencing them.
But do remember, you are, all of you are, an eternal spirit, an eternal indestructible spirit . The physical experience – and I’m not justifying it – in that sense, is only a part of it, part of the total experience of the spirit.
If the spirit knows that an act of unconditional love, in going into a life, that it may experience a certain kind of suffering for awhile, will actually open the eyes and awaken others to how they can go about changing their world, to be something more positive, many spirits will actually choose to do that, out of love.
They may not remember that they did it when they are physical, it may make no sense to them when they are physical or to anyone else, but there is a reason.
There is always a reason.
Now, yes, sometimes, because of the nature again of the belief systems that exist on your planet, many people for thousands of years on your planet, have not known that they can actually make a conscious choice to experience the kind of life that they prefer.
When a being on your planet dies, not knowing it can make a conscious choice, it will sometimes – especially in what you call the past – sometimes, simply pick up right away in another life, that in your terms would be reflective of unresolved issues from the past one. Do you follow me? I’m speaking linearly here for a moment.
So sometimes, the experiences of people, even children obviously, having lives that you see in that manner as having described as suffering, may be the result of not knowing consciously, that they could have chosen something else.
When the word choice is used it doesn’t always mean it’s a conscious choice. The key, especially in the present life is to learn to make these choices consciously, intentionally. And to know that you have the power, that you have the option, that’s the key. Then, then – you can transform all these things.
But, right now, Earth being what it is, the consequences and product of thousands of years of fear, there are still a lot of people on your planet who are caught up in fear. Still a lot of people who are perpetrating a lot of negative things against other people.
Spirits know that that’s the territory they’re entering (before they reincarnate back on Earth). They understand it may be rough, but they also understand what the consequences may be, they understand that because of their willingness to go through that experience because of the number of people they may actually help by doing so. Do you follow?
It is not a justification for the negative act but these things are all done in some way shape or form by agreement by orchestration, even if it is an unintentional or unconscious one, there are still the consequences of energy. And even though you could say ‘Well I didn’t intentionally make that choice’, if you choose to perpetuate certain negative belief systems within yourself , that will always have a particular consequence according to the *Third Law, so even if a person doesn’t necessarily in their mind want something bad to happen to them, but are always afraid it might, then they are choosing something bad to happen to them.
That’s the same thing. Being afraid that something might happen is the same thing as saying you are choosing it. Because what you’re saying is, that out of all your belief systems, out of all of them, that’s the one you believe is most likely going to happen. That’s the one you’re giving the power to.
Therefore that’s the consequences you get and thus it can be said it was a choice … even if you’re not in touch with exactly how that might have occurred, mechanistically speaking.
But the issue is to become more aware of how that happened so that you can choose with eyes open. So that generation after generation things can get, as you say, more peaceful, more nurturing, more loving, more creative, more supportive. That’s what this transformational age on your planet is all about. That’s why you’re also seeing an increase in all the negativity because you’re getting everything up out of your system. All the things you’ve been holding onto for thousands of years, all the fears, all the negative acts, you’re putting them all out on the table, saying ‘look, look, look at what we have made our world to be…look what we have made ourselves to be… is this what we want? Is this what we want to be?
If the answer is no, then help. Do something that is a positive reflection. Be of assistance to those people. Relieve the suffering where you can and let others know that those that perpetrate the suffering are themselves suffering, that’s why they do it.
Please remember, it takes a victim to make a victim – you understand?
You must do things that break the chain of victimization beginning with the perpetrator, because the only reason why they do what they do is because they have been taught to believe that they are unworthy, that they are disconnected, that they are powerless and in living in the terror of the experience of being disconnected from their power, believe me, they will still want to reach out to whoever they can, but, being that they are perpetuating a negative spiral they will reach out in a negative way because it’s the only way they’ve been taught to express themselves.
But, when they are taught to believe they are powerful, that they are an aspect of God, that they can live the life of joy that they prefer to live, there will be no need to force themselves on anyone else, there will be no need to control, there will be no need … do you follow me?”
