The word for today is “empathy”. Empathy has been described as understanding another person’s experiences or emotions.
When we empathize with someone – there is no room for judgment, because we are either understanding where they are coming from, or we are in the process of understanding. In this sense, we are validating them and what they are going through.
So empathy has a wonderful sense of compassion built in, that says I will care or I do care! In fact, empathy makes us human, and connects us wonderfully with other human beings.
And being infused with empathy will do wonders for our art and creativity, when we allow it to flow.
Peace, and have a great time creating!
