Uh-oh, I thought. Hope the girls are ok.
I came out a minute later and the two girls were nowhere to be found. Then I noticed a pile of broken pieces on the kitchen counter. One of the large handmade plates I had commissioned from a beautiful ceramics shop in a little town north of Barcelona, Spain had fallen on the floor and shattered.
Oh well, I thought. Not worth getting upset about.
I walked over to my daughter’s room and saw the two friends lying next to each other on top of her bunkbed. My daughter had her arm around her friend who was lying on her tummy sobbing quietly.
I asked if she was ok and my daughter told me her friend was embarrassed and upset because of the broken plate.
I told them that I wasn’t upset at all. That it was just a plate. It took a few minutes and some humor and her friend stopped crying. Later I asked what happened. It was an accident, of course.
I realized I had intuitively treated the girls exactly the way I would want to be treated if this incident had happened to me.
To judge another as guilty of something only creates separation and conflict. It is a form of emotional attack that leaves deep repercussions.
We expect people to act a certain way. When they don’t, we judge them. Can be little things, like how they dress to big things like what they choose to do with their life.
Judgment is simply our attachment to our own insecurities.
If you are not happy and confident, you will not relate to others from a place of wisdom and compassion.
Compassion is the golden key for creating healthy relationships.
I love the actual word COMPASSION.
It contains com and passion. “With Passion.”
“Come – passion”!
Compassion does NOT mean, as Wikipedia would lead you to believe, “to suffer together”. It does not illicit pity or feeling sorry for someone.
Compassion is a feeling of Empathy – is a deeply spiritual feeling.
An Empath connects with others heart-to-heart, soul-to-soul by intuiting your energy field.
Love with Passion!
We feel compassion when we are in a state of non-attachment to any outcome. When we are FREE from expectation. When we are breathing moment to moment at ONE with All.
In 2012, compassion must inform how we relate to others. It is the key to FREEDOM in our relationships.
Without feeling compassion this year, you will be easily triggered to overreact. You will feel stuck and frustrated – leading to self-denial and self-criticism – translating to criticism of others.
Be tender with yourself and you will do the same for others.
Be bold with your gentleness and you will elevate others and your life in one and the same gesture.
This is the secret in The 2012 Code.
2 – 01 – 2
The number of peaceful communication and relationships is 2. And this year there are two 2’s embracing the 01 on either side.
In other words, peace and compassion is embracing the building blocks of life, the “01”.
01 is BALANCE — yin/yang, female/male.
2-01-2 is the year of bringing YOU into balance. In a calm, peaceful state you are completely connected to ALL, to your Soul – to your Divine Source.
Love and Blessings,
