Forget and let go of what is stopping you from connecting. You even feel connected to people you don’t know, even if they live on the other side side of the world, you feel connected to them. It expands from the center and embraces everything, which means it’s everywhere. How do you know that the person has compassion? How do you know you have compassion?
How do you know you love? How do you know you love someone? How do you know these things? I think it’s not a question of knowing, it’s a question of feeling. When we talk about love, when we talk about compassion, it is something you feel.
It’s like just one example. Now, yes, I love you, I have compassion with you.
Exaggerating now, but it doesn’t matter what you say. It’s not the words that you tell to somebody, I love you and I feel compassion with you, or the same like, thank you for everything you’ve done to me.
And this is why. Gratefulness, thankfulness, compassion, love. Sometimes those four, we are also regarding as qualities of the heart. Qualities of the heart. So how do you know that you have this type of quality?
Because you feel it. Where do you feel it? It’s amongst the strongest feelings a human, I think, can have. And from where would I say, does it radiate from the heart, from the center, and what is love? It is a massive expansion from the center, which is embracing everything.
Some people say love is God. Okay? Makes sense. It expands from the center and embraces everything, which means it’s everywhere. That would fit.
Very good. The ultimate truth of this universe is ultimate love. Okay? If you express it like this also fits to me. So what is this feeling of love?
You feel connected to humans, you feel connected to this place. You feel connected to the nature. You even feel connected to people you don’t know, even if they live on the other side of the world, you feel connected to them. You feel that on the Earth, we are connected. You feel in our solar system, we are connected.
You even feel in case there would be some type of beings on the Mars, you even feel for them because the connection doesn’t end. And as long as this expression of love, if you talk about the type of love, which is still excluding anything, anyone, I would maybe find another word for it. But this is not the one where I think is related to that quality that you are supposed to develop in your heart. So on the one side, it’s this very deep and strong feeling of connectivity to everything. And this is the one thing.
And now, because you’re connected and you see somebody is crying there and you see somebody is suffering there, and you see somebody has a hard time, it doesn’t matter because of what you feel. Also, something inside this connectivity where you would actually like to raise all of them up to get out of that state where you see them in this now how I would express in simple terms what compassion is about and why they are so closely related. First you are connected because you’re connected, now you feel more these are those two and now, how does now in those constellations does forgiveness forgive let go? How does this in the way fit in? Well, forget about what let go of what forgive forget and let go of what is stopping you from connecting?
What is stopping me from connecting? Watching through the world only through this body is what stops you from connecting. Thinking that this is everything that matters you yourself are stopping you from connecting. The more I think this complete life, this complete universe is only about you, the less you’re connected.
