A Word for Wednesday

20160509_124143

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!

      1. may peace rise up and spread out to every desolate soul out there, every where. thats my hope Nico. you remind us all, to think more. to be more. thanks.

  1. Very few have curse/gift of empathy… most people I have seen don’t even feel what might have been going on in another’s life/world or heart. they just cant, it is not that they are selfish or cruel…but if everyone had this then things would have been really good!
