“I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health. I said, ‘There’s nothing that I can do for you that you can’t do for yourself.’ He said, ‘Oh yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that would help.’ So I sat with him a while then asked him how he felt. He said, “I think I’m cured.’”
~ Conor Oberst
“Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else’s skin.
It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.“
~ Frederick Buechner
“Compassion is not religious business, it is human business.
It is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability.
It is essential for human survival.”
~ Dalai Lama
“The dew of compassion is a tear.”
~ Lord Byron
Feb 27th, watch traffic and take your time getting to work and school.
Compassion is a word that is thrown around a lot, denied of it’s true nature and largely abused. It is easy to feel softly for that which we find comfortable. But can you shed tears for someone who believes in what you despise? Can you have true compassion for something that seems alien to you? Can you have compassion for those who rub you the wrong way? And can you have compassion for the faces you cannot see? Because if you cannot, we are doomed.
The burden of our modern age is to find our compassion for others in spite of the internet allowing us to not think of them as human, because there’s no face to interact with. In spite of charities, corporations and governments who tell us they will handle our giving for us, so we need not worry about it ourselves. In spite of politics that tell us that we are different from our brothers and can never be united and can never “both” be “right.” Compassion and Division do not harmonize. What messages from the mob do you receive? These are questions I ask and ponderings I pitch to you as we fully enter the 2012 cycle and year of the Dragon.
March – May…. This is the window to watch right now. Starting in March we hit several pockets of highly intensified energies. I expect to see what many will define as chaos. However, this is a good wave to ride for clarity, vision and opportunities. Read that as FOCUS, get your mitt ready and look for goodies to catch too. Be ready to multi-task like never before. Some very significant windows will fling open during this time, but these windows are also the short-lived kind. There will be many. Think of it like catching fire-flies. There will be many, and catching them may take some focus and doing (and willingness to stumble and dance) but the little lights only come out for so long. You can also think of this like a game of pictionary. Every puzzle is a challenge and an opportunity requiring communication for the win, but time is limited. When a challenge heads your way, you want to tackle it and resolve it quickly. Communicate clearly and without judgment. Don’t over analyze and don’t blame.
This chaotic Mar-May feel also plays out physically and in the weather. I still pick up rumblings of something important happening in southern CA. I think there will be more tornadoes, like we saw last year. I think it will snow somewhere at a time and/or place we consider unusual. And I think by end of the year there will be a domestic incident/attempt in the US, but a significant window of opportunity is going to be during this Mar-May window of multiple windows. There’s just an awful lot of intensified energies and energies that create challenges to juggle and jump through hoops with. Expect to be challenged! Right now is prep time, set the stage time, remember who you are time, research and listen time. This is slow time for a reason. Come March, be ready to be flexible and act as things start hopping. And don’t just duck the rocks that come your way, catch them! April will intensify what March begins. Communication is very key during this time. Don’t avoid it, clarify and hone it!
Also… law making and policies are getting a stomping, especially come this fall. If we were really following the Divine flow of this energy, we’d simplify, scrap some things and revamp others. Since it seems unlikely, expect it to consequently hurt. When we don’t flow, unintended consequences arise. Don’t think it has to do with conspiracy of any particular group; it’s simply a matter of reap what you sow, on the grander, more complicated energy scale. How we do things is shifting and this is pushing us. How soon and how pleasant all this takes place is really up to us. What will not help this shift is name calling and division. I call on my friends not to participate in that. I don’t care how annoying someone is or how much hurt you feel. It’s your job to raise people up to your level, not stoop to anything lower. It is also your job to listen and be open to ideas you have not considered before. Consider your spheres of influence and make positive use of your influence. Political parties and organized news are not where the Light is. You are.
