Empathy equals judgement, no matter how you look at it. When you place yourself in the shoes of another, judgement occurs involuntarily.
The definition of empathy is the capacity to understand what another person is experiencing from within the other person’s frame of reference, i.e. the capacity to place oneself in anothers’ shoes.
Empathy is an emotion that opens a gateway to the emotions of others, projected onto oneself
Characteristics such as empathy have been labelled as normal or righteous by society and, if we ask no questions to the validity of traits which we are taught to be right or good, then we fall victim to beliefs that negatively affect our lives to the very day we leave our bodies on this planet.
Empathy is portrayed to be a good and honorable trait to embody in this experience, if we want to be seen as a “good person.”
Most of us show the majority of our empathy only to our close circles of friends and to family members.
Others have empathy towards for whole world and all the people they come across, setting themselves up for a bumpy roller-coaster ride of feelings and emotions that they absorb.
Why is it customary to bring yourself down to the frequency of another individual to show that you care for the well-being of the individual?
If someone is in a lowly state, which you have also experienced before in your past, then it means you have already explored that frequency and now it is dormant inside of you because you have raised yourself to higher vibrations.
When we meet our old selves and we have not yet forgiven ourselves for leading ourselves down those dark alleyways, then we invoke that dormant frequency inside of us that does not serve to help anybody and only awakens our demons from the past.
The source of this is empathy which leads to judging our old selves. When you feel empathy for suffering you actually throw fuel on the fire, you validate the low frequency you are observing and prolong it.
Judgement is none of your business on this planet, for each has their own free will and choose for themselves the kind of life they wish to experience. It is not up to you to decide how others should live their lives and when they are ready to start the spiritual ascension process.
The moment you empathize with someone you lose touch with your own divinity which is the power that can actually serve to help and heal the other individual you are in contact with. The only way you can form a bridge for others to your world/frequency is to be rooted in an unmoving foundation of truth, wherever it is you go.
Another point to take note of is that when you place another in the center of your consciousness, you inadvertently absorb negative energies which you will have to purge from yourself.
The term empath that has arisen in many new age circles basically describes a large group of individuals that struggle to remain completely centered, neutral and unmovable throughout the day of social encounters in this “crazy world”.
Ironically, what has been termed a sensitivity is actually just a really bad judgement problem.
Empathy is not compassion
Do not mistake compassion for empathy, which involves judgement by feeling the same as the other.
Compassion is a process of connecting by identifying with another person. The root word for com means “together” and passion comes from the latin root word “pati” which means “to suffer”. If you go back to its origins, compassion actually means “to suffer together” .
Ask yourself, if we all suffer together all the time when is the time to liberate ourselves from suffering?
The answer is, when enough take responsibility to form stable pillars in society that do not crumble in the midst of suffering caused by compassion.
And the way to do this is to let go of empathy, judgement and compassion, which have been drilled into our belief systems through religious spiritual teachings.
The more we become rooted in ourselves and build solid pillars in society, the more bridges to a new and better world we create — a world towards so many of us are currently heading.
Which means that the sooner we are able to transform our external reality, the closer we come to the manifestation of a better world. And the more souls enter this new world, the faster it will shape itself in accordance to the projection of the predominant consciousness.
Exciting times await us!
