This has to be one of the most challenging articles I have had to write because it flies in the face of an old social paradigm in which we have all been immersed. That paradigm has to do with how we understand and use compassion. For the sake of clarity, I make a differentiation between compassion as we have been taught by society (Let’s call it 3D compassion) and the higher dimensional version of compassion (Let’s call it unconditional compassion).
Webster’s dictionary defines compassion as: Deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the wish to relieve it; pity. I believe that this is a very good explanation of the kind of compassion that we have been taught. As you can see, compassion is an emotion: a feeling in motion. It is an active feeling. When a feeling is active, it can be used as a tool. As a tool, it can be used in a positive or negative manner.
Now notice that Webster’s uses the term pity when defining compassion. Webster’s defines pity as: a feeling of sorrow that inclines one to help or to show mercy. Mercy is often used as motive for rescuing another from pain. And we have been taught that mercy is good. Yet, from a higher perspective, pity and mercy are seen as terms that define someone who is a victim, not a creator god/goddess.
I have come to understand that pity is an active form of judgment with the suffering of another being judged as bad. No wonder we dislike being pitied. hmmm… We usually don’t wish to relieve another of feeling something wonderful, do we? But we do tend to want to relieve another of a feeling that makes us feel bad too, i.e., pain. Sorrow and suffering are painful and therefore when we take pity on another person’s experience we are saying that what they are experiencing is not good, wouldn’t you say? So with this in mind, would it make sense that 3D compassion, as defined by Webster’s Dictionary, is a tool of judgment? Please keep in mind that this form of compassion being taught to us is all part of the game and we designed it to be disempowering so that we, as souls, could move into a disempowered state, figure out that we are disempowered and then take the steps to regain our power. In other words, it is part of the game of soul evolution, therefore, it is neither right or wrong.
Higher dimensional or unconditional compassion is defined as: deep awareness of the suffering of another without the need to relieve it, feeling total appreciation for its value; a state of non-judgment.
As you can see, defining unconditional compassion is a bit difficult because we have to stretch our minds to embrace another point of view that is quite foreign to us. The thought that someone’s suffering can have a value is not normal thinking on our world. But, it is the kind of thinking we have been taught that God does. “God is compassionate, God is unconditionally loving.” We hear those words and yet do not comprehend how to reach those states of consciousness. How do we get to the level of unconditional love and compassion? What are the steps? In a nutshell, we must shift our perspective of compassion and begin using a version that is beyond what we have been taught. We must move into the realm of non-judgment, leaving pity behind.
To become unconditionally compassionate we must suspend all judgment of the actions of another. We must be aware of those actions, how painful they are and at the same time realize that they have a value and that value pertains to the role they play in facilitating our spiritual growth as souls. It has been said by many teachers that we are souls having a physical experience. We are souls who have come to earth to partake of the greatest opportunity for soul growth. Why is it a great opportunity? Earth is in a free will zone meaning that there are no limits on creative expression of Light and Dark. It has also been said that we are creator gods and goddesses and therefore we create our own realities. So if we are souls that are also creator gods/goddesses and we are incarnate on earth to create in order to learn and grow from what we create, then Earth must be a creator gods’/goddesses’ ultimate playground. Right? What do ya think?
Now, it’s true that our Dark creations are the ones that cause us pain. I don’t think anyone will dispute that. But, as we who have evolved a bit know, we learn the most from our painful experiences. In fact, it is through our Dark manifestations that we grow: not from our Light manifestations. Our Light manifestations are the rewards we create for ourselves for creating, experiencing and learning from our Dark manifestations. Okay, so if all that is true then we are creators of all that we experience – that means all the manifestations Light and Dark in our world – and they all have value because they are how we learn. Let’s take the events of 9/11/2001 as an example.
- From a 3D perspective (the way society thinks) 9/11 was a horrifically painful event. From a 3D perspective there is no way that there can be anything good about it, thus it has no value. But, from a higher perspective, it has great value. Here are just a few:
- It took us to the next level in this game of soul evolution called Polarity Integration (the integration of the Light and the Dark).
- It showed us that we, as Lightworkers, have moved the mass consciousness of earth to a higher level thus creating a counter move by the Dark.
- The attacks provided the wake-up call for Lightworkers everywhere to step into their greater mission for earth (creating a grid of compassion around the earth to pull it up into a 5th dimensional vibration.)
As you can see, from the higher perspective on unconditional compassion, the events of 9/11 had great value.
On a personal level, when I saw those buildings come down, realizing that their demise was not caused by impact of the planes, I knew that that one event heralded a new phase of earth’s ascension. At the same time, I realized that such an event would not have occurred unless those who play the Dark roles felt that the Light was getting ahead of them. In planetary ascensions, there is always balance and counterbalance. When the Light forces moved the earth to a higher vibration, the Dark forces moved to counterbalance that move. This is our creation mirroring to us the power of our actions. The Dark would not have made this move unless we had made a move that put us ahead of them. Does that make sense? So this is, on a spiritual and creator god/goddess level a good thing because it enables us to see that we are making progress in shifting our planet through the power of collective consciousness.
The events of 9/11 also alerted me to the fact that we are in a whole new ball game, having moved into the level where the stakes are much greater. Just as we have moved the collective consciousness (the collective mind of the people) into a higher state and thus, out of the fish bowl so to speak, so the Dark forces now move to get us back into that fish bowl. As I have said before, this is no longer a game fought just to imprison our bodies; it is now a game to imprison our minds. Why? Because we finally moved our collective mind out of the fish bowl! Before now, that had not occurred because there weren’t enough people spiritually awakened to make that shift but now there is.
So, getting back to compassion. If we use the 3D form of compassion in responding to this latest creator god experience, we will find ourselves back in the fishbowl. Why? We are choosing to view this experience as victims by wanting to stop the pain and by pitying those who have suffered. When we act in this manner we separate ourselves from our highest potential i.e., our creator god/goddess selves. We see this creation as that of someone else—we see those who played the Dark role as separate from us. Creator gods and goddesses know that they are One, they are part of a greater whole. When we use 3D compassion we say by our actions that we are not powerful and therefore unable to create a different experience, unable to learn from it and unable heal and balance this latest painful creation.
When we use 3D compassion we feel pity. When we pity someone we state by our action that what they are experiencing is bad and therefore negative. As souls and creator gods/goddesses, there is no right or wrong, just expressions of polarity and all expressions have value. So, creator gods/goddesses do not use pity … instead they remain non-judgmental, allowing all expressions of creation to just be. Now, doesn’t that sound like the way that God is non-judgmental, allowing and unconditionally loving? If so, then we now know how to be like God.
Moving on, in the example of the 9/11 attacks, we see that using 3D compassion will only assure that we stay in the fish bowl. If, instead we choose to use 5D compassion we will not only keep our collective minds out of the fish bowl but we can move it even higher and further beyond the rim. How do we do this? We do it by accomplishing 3 creator god/goddess steps.
- Seeing and learning the extent of the actions of the Dark in this life experience.
- Feeling and transmuting those energies into compassion.
- Funneling that compassion into a new reality or grid of consciousness that we expand to envelope our world, thus moving us even further out of the fish bowl. I’ll explain.
1: Learn the extent of the actions of the Dark: Don’t be an ostrich
This step means that we as creator gods/goddesses explore the depths of our creation. We do not hide or run from what we have created. No matter how dark, ugly, disgusting and painful that creation is, we realize that not only are we responsible for it because it is part of All That Is, we find value in it as a learning opportunity.
I have found that many Lightworkers are either not aware that they need to do this or are unwilling to do it. They think that by not looking at the Dark, not researching and investigating the official story being given by the media, that they are doing the right thing. In other words, they are not adding fuel to the fire by responding in anger or feeling the need for revenge. On one hand they are correct, but what they are missing is that they are not doing anything to counterbalance the event. In other words, they are not creating and fueling a counter reality to the 9/11 attacks.
I have received numerous emails from well-intentioned Lightworkers, informing me that they are staying centered in the love and therefore, are not acknowledging the Dark. In this instance that means the actions of the terrorists, the Global Elite and/or on a cosmic level, the reptilians. In many but not all cases, I get that they are avoiding seeing the Dark, thus they behave much like an ostrich. They are sticking their heads in a hole, thinking that if they don’t acknowledge the bad and the ugly, it will go away. Well, unfortunately we all know that that doesn’t work. If it did, I would be the first in line to do it. So, my friends, the first step is to know the extent of the actions of the Dark side, however they manifest. It’s not fun and, in fact, it’s very painful. Some of what I have researched turns my stomach and gives me nightmares but I would rather have these things happen than to be naïve. Knowledge is power. When we know what we are up against, we can do something about it. We are empowered. We have choice.
2: Transmuting the energies
Once we know the extent of the Dark’s actions, we can then move to the next step: transmutation. This is where higher dimensional/creator god tools come into play. We cannot transmute the pain, anger, revulsion and disgust into compassion unless we have a tool that enables us to see their value. At this time in our history, we must activate those tools and we will find them stored in our DNA. We did not choose to be here on earth at this time without the tools that would enable us to successfully complete the mission. I have dubbed the most powerful of those tools the Formula of Compassion. It contains the higher dimensional version of compassion.
As creator gods/goddesses we take this tool and transmute the energies of our Dark creation. We feel and express the anger, rage, hatred, revulsion, etc., move them up through our lower charkas, through our heart and into our high heart where they are transmuted. Once there, we hold them in our high heart while we look for their value, in this case of the WTC/Pentagon attacks, the value stated above. Then, once we find the value of each, we move into gratitude for the teachings they provided. At the same time we release them with appreciation along with those who played the roles to trigger those feelings in us. At that point, we feel compassion and we are compassionate. We are also now doing what we really came to earth to do!
3: Creating the Grid
Using 5D compassion means that as creator gods/goddesses we understand that we must now create an alternate reality to the previous one. We must create a reality that not only counterbalances the Dark one but also takes us to the next level in our learning. So, we invest time in transmuting all the dark energies from our current creation, wresting every drop of darkness to use as fuel that we transmute to energize our new reality, and our next step. In regards to the WTC/Pentagon Attacks, we are at that point now.
In closing, as creator gods/goddesses, we have a choice to make in using the tool of compassion. We can either use 3D version of compassion and remain in the fish bowl, neutralizing our power to create something better, or 5D version and move our world to an even higher state of consciousness. Which version will you choose?
“I was much moved by your article, thank you. I have been in counseling, and have learned how to embrace the dark within … it’s a matter of how I use it, not the agony and suffering over what has happened. So in that sense, I am grateful and can see the experiences as lessons and springboards. Again, thank you for your wonderful article.” Jeanna P.
“I just read What is Compassion? written on October 10, 2001. I am writing this to thank you for sharing. On September 11 I was watching the news and saw the second plane hit the second tower as it occurred. My body became rigid. I couldn’t move. I was very uncomfortable with this. I immediately began declaring Divine Order. I knew that God was in charge. I began to relax and got my motor functions back. As I discussed the events with people who had all sorts of horrific reactions and thoughts, I remained calm. I remained centered, I thought this is what “Grace” must feel like. As I described this to one friend, I told him that perhaps I should do a reality check because I was so okay with it all. He advised me to just keep the high watch. That said a lot to me. Then, this morning I read your treatise on Compassion and it all made more sense. It is all okay. It is all in Divine Order. I knew that. I just needed a refresher course. Thank you.” Kathie L.
