Step 12 – Good with People


part of the spiritual experience is coming to terms with the society in which you live. Sometimes this can be quite difficult; one feels changed, different, and it is hard to communicate this experience to others.

but in the end, we are Individuals living in a collective group; associations are paramount.

One skill that is easily developed is empathy; a deep understanding of what someone else is feeling.

Compassion goes hand in hand with Empathy.

as we journey further and further, we recognise our unique differences, but also the Huge Amounts of Common Ground that we have; we can become good with people, and share our experiences.

the joy of spirit shines in us all.

    Some really nice cello passages and runs throughout this. Nice phrasing – I’d love to hear some crazy aggitated harpsichord music – something aggressive, but fun

    Great music man 🙂

    I hate to bring such an elevated idea down to the base level of the political, but this post makes me think of how I truly feel that Obama’s popularity is based on his spirit of trying to find and establish a common ground for people to work from. I feel that he is honest in this goal, and I hope that it becomes the inspiration for peaceful, constructive acts and a spread of compassion in the world. It would be nice for the US to be a source of good in the world for a change.

    I’d say an early step to developing true empathy for others is letting go of fear, loosening one’s hold on self. Right, I’m just paraphrasing earlier blog entries, aren’t I ? Heh. 🙂 Must. Get. Fuel. (back after dinner)
