Compassion (And How To Cultivate Compassion) – Teal Swan

September 11, 2019


Compasiunea e o forma de interconexiune care trece dincolo de gand si logica. Este spontana. Compasiunea este un sentiment de interconexiune care apare natural cand avem experienta unei convergente plina de intelegere cu altcineva. In alte cuvinte apare natural ca rezultat al unei experiente simtita sau impartasita, de durere. Exista o armonie intrinseca in emotie si intelegere impartasite. Cand simtim compasiune simtim tristete si intelegere si gria pentru suferinta a ceva sau a cuiva. Si impartasirea acestei experiente de durere si deci de tristete si de grija pentru ceilalti ne determina sa ne alteram atentia si actiunile catre acel lucru. Simtim mila si iubire pentru el in loc de cruzime si separare de el. Ganditi-va la momentul cand va uitati la un film si un eveniment dureros s-a petrecut cu personajul. In momentul acela ati simtit ce simte personajul. Asta inseamna ca in momentul acela nu numai ca ati simtit senzatia aceea de “durere impartasita”si deci conexiune cu acel personaj, ci l-ati si inteles perfect. Asta este compasiune. Compasiunea apare imediat ce vedem pe cineva care experimenteaza durerea cu care rezonam noi. Si prin aceasta rezonanta cu durerea intelegem de ce are nevoie acea persoana. Cand nu ne putem raporta la ceva ne simtim diferiti si separat de ei. De aceea industria de carne a lumii o duce atat de bine in ziua de azi. Pentru ca noi crestem cu catelul nostru Golden Retriever de exemplu, ne putem raporta la el. Cand acesta traieste durere, simtim compasiune. De aceea, ideea de a manca cainele de casa ne-ar oripila. Insa cei mai multi dintre noi nu ne raportam la vaci, nu simtim ca avem lucruri in comun cu ele. Nu empatizam cu durerea lor. Deci este usor pentru noi sa stam jos si sa mancam un hamburger. Ca si persoana care are o durere in comun cu altcineva, suntem incapabili sa ii provocam acelasi gen de durere acelei persoane. Pentru ca stim cum se simte. De aceea este atat de comun ca persoane care au trait abuz sever sa se opreasca din a consuma carne. Nu simtim compasiune si propagam cruzime catre lucruri cu care nu relationam. Daca ne identificam ca fiinte pe deplin sanatoase mental nu vom avea compasiune pentru oameni care sunt bolnavi mental. Ii vom trata ca si cum sunt o amenintare pentru societate si ne vom infuria ca nu pot pur si simplu sa se trezeasca, ii vom ostraciza si nu vom sti nevoile lor pentru ca nu putem relationa cu ei, vom face tot felul de lucruri care le va creste suferinta in loc sa o micsoreze. Alt exemplu este ca nu simtim nici o compasiune catre paianjeni. Vom calca pe ei si ii vom strivi cu un papuc crezand ca actiunea este corecta. Multi oameni bogati nu au compasiune catre oameni ce traiesc in saracie. Pentru ca nu se pot raporta la ei. Deci isi imagineaza ca sunt lenesi si tot vor schimba legile ca sa mareasca costul traiului fara sa mareasca salariile. Astfel facand sa fie si mai grea prosperitatea financiara. Concluzia este ca nici o schimbare pozitiva si eficienta nu
se poate face de catre o persoana catre o alta persoana
cu care nu relationeaza la nivel profund ca sa ii inteleaga
perspectiva, si in consecinta, nevoile. Astazi o sa fac ideea de compasiune atat de simpla pentru voi incat nu o veti mai putea uita niciodata. O sa fac astfel incat sa nu fie abstracta astfel incat sa nu puteti folosi niciodata scuza ca nu stii cum sa ai compasiune. Compasiunea apare natural cand relationam sau empatizam cu suferinta cuiva. Deci tot ce trebuie sa facem astfel incat sa simtim compasiune si sa stim ce actiuni sa luam in legatura cu acel lucru este sa ne uitam in mod deliberat la CUM am putea sa relationam cu durerea lor. Daca suntem prea inspaimantati sa ne uitam la cum am putea relationa cu cineva trebuie sa ne uitam atent la asta. De ce ar fi atat de rau sa empatizam cu aceasta persoana? De ce ar fi atat de rau daca suferinta noastra ar fi la fel? De ce ar fi atat de rau daca ne-am putea conecta la ei? Daca m-as putea considera ACELASI in loc de DIFERIT de el… Iata cum sta treaba, trebuie sa ne putem sub lupa raspunsurile sau gandurile care apar a rezultat al acestei intrebari cu COMPASIUNE. Trebuie sa ingrijim cu compasiune acel aspect din noi care este prea inspaimantat sa fie destul de vulnerabil sa relationeze cu suferinta cuiva. Din cauza consecintelor care credem noi ca vor fi cand facem asta. Compasiunea se intampla doar cand mentii ideea ca esti diferit de cineva. A avea compasiune incepe cu a te uita la modurile in care esti asemanator cu ceva. Fa exact opusul de cum ar face ego-ul tau in mod natural, care e sa se uite la cum esti diferit de el. Deci daca ai probleme cu a avea compasiune fata de ceva, dedica timp catre a fi prezent cu acel lucru, a invata despre el si a il intelege. De acolo. daca nu s-a intamplat deja, uita-te in mod deliberat la moduri in care esti asemanator acelui lucru. De acolo vezi daca poti gasi lucruri in care poti empatiza cu durerea lor, cum e suferinta ta la fel cu a lor? Poti sa identifici durerea lor? Uita_te in urma, cand ai experimentat suferinta ca aceea? Aminteste-ti cum te-ai simtit. Aminteste-ti ce ai gandit. De ce ai avut nevoie cu adevarat atunci cand erai in acea durere? Interconexiunea compasiunii apare natural cand ne asumam aceasta perspectiva in loc de o perspectiva in care suntem separati de ei si deci diferiti de ei. Daca avem o lipsa de compasiune catre lucruri care sunt in exteriorul nostru este o indicatie ca avem o lipsa de compaiune catre acele lucruri care sunt in interiorul nostru. Motivul pentru aceasta este fragmentarea. Cand experimentam trauma, adica situatii care cauzeaza suferinta care nu poate fi rezolvata in copilarie, trebuie sa ne disociem de ea. A te disocia este sa te separi de o experienta sa sa te separi de ceva. Vezi ce provoaca acest lucru? Constiinta noastra se divizeaza cand facem asta ca sa putem supraveietui. Fortam un aspect al nostru care traieste durerea sa se indeparteze de noi, in respingem si il negam, si ne identificam cu aspectul care NU simte vulnerabilitate. Dar pentru ca nu putem deveni doua persoane in acel moment, atunci EUl nostru devine fragmentat. Deci desi avem un corp, in acel corp iau fiinta mai multe EU-ri. Unele le ingropam in subconstient, si nu vor vedea lumina zilei niciodata. Ca sa intelegem cum se petrece acest proces in profunzime, uitati-va la video-ul meu intitulat “Fragmentarea- Boala Lumii”. Cand ne separam si ne dezidentificam de un aspect al nostru, consecinta naturala este ca nu mai empatizm cu el. Ne spnem “Nu, asta nu sunt eu.” si evident ca pierdem compasiunea pentru el. Dar problema este ca e parte din noi. Deci daca pierdem compasiunea pentru o parte din noi, demonstram cruzime catre o parte din noi si simtim asta in corpul fizic. De aceea suntem capabili sa propagam acelasi gen de abuz care ni s-a facut ca si copii. De aceea parintii ne pot forta sa ne abandonam visele in favoarea a ceva rational si practic si apoi NOI ne vom forta copiii nostri sa faca la fel, nereusind sa mai empatizam cu suferinta pe care acest lucru ni l-a provocat, deci nerelationand cu tortura pe care o cauzam copiilor nostri. Ca sa ne usuram de suferinta trebuie sa reintegram aceste aspecte ale noastre, trebuie sa empatizam cu ele din nou, trebuie sa le atragem mai aproape astfel incat sa simtim ca sunt parte din noi, opusul a le impinge departe. Ca sa facem asta, facem ce am face si cu alta persoana cand vine vorba de compasiune, doar de data asta catre acea parte din noi pe care o respingem. Ca sa va dau un exemplu usor, copilul interior despre care vorbim tot timpul in campul psihologiei si al Self Help-ului, sau cel spiritual , acesta este un aspect al vostru care e fragmentat. Deci dezvoltam compasiunea fata de sine cand suntem prezenti cu copilul interior din noi, cand invatam de la el sau ea, cand o/il intelegem. Urmatorii pasi sunt usori penru ca vei empatiza cu ei natural pentru ca sunt deja parte din tine. Dar de acolo, daca nu s-a petrecut deja natural, poti sa te uiti deliberat la moduri in care esti la FEL ca si copilul tau interior. De acolo vezi daca poti gasi moduri in care relationezi cu durerea lui, cum e durerea lui si a ta la fel, poti sa identifici durerea lor? Lasa-ti copilul interior sa iti arate trecutul, aminteste-ti cand ai trait durerea aceea, aminteste-ti cum s-a simtit si ce ai gandit, ce ai avut nevoie atunci cand erai in acea suferinta. Cum ai putea sa oferi acel ceva pentru tine si ceilalti acum? Interconexiunea compasiunii cu acea parte din noi apare natural cand asumam aceasta perspectiva in loc de una in care suntem separati de copilul nostru interior si diferit de ei si mai rau, cand asumam perspectiva ca suntem adulti si deci un copil interior nici nu exista. Cand vom face asta lumina companiunii va provoca o integrare a acestor fragmente si aspecte ale noastre. Ne vom simti mai intregi. Rusinea noastra se va evapora si lumina compasiunii va fi topi gheata. Vom face actiuni catre noi insine care sunt aliniate cu compasiunea. Va voi da un exemplu a cum acest proces de separare interioara lucreaza in relatie cu compasiunea. Imagineaza-ti ca ai un politician care este in mare masura crud si dictatorial. Imagineaza-ti ca acum mult timp in copilaria sa a avut un tata care l-a rusinat si l-a respins de cate ori nu era la inaltime, poate acest tata ii spunea ca nu e bun de nimic, si le spunea si celorlalti la fel. Acelora care nu se ridicau la nivelul standardelor lui. Neavand cum sa rezolve suferinta cestei experiente, si ca sa pastreze iubirea acelui tata, a trebuit sa se rupa de acel aspect al lui care se simtea ca un ratat, si de durerea acelor sentimente ca ar putea sa nu fie destul de bun. A trebuit sa se identifice cu acel aspect al lui care e invingator. A trebuit sa ascunda partea din el care nu a simtit ca e destul de bun ca sa nu trebuiasca sa o vada niciodata.. A trebuit sa impinga orice sentiment sau actiune sau gand pe care tatal sau le asocia cu a fi bun de nimic. A trebuit sa se considere diferit de ele. Acum pentru ca le-a impins atat de departe, aspectul cu care se identifica el nu poate relationa cu ele. Acum el numeste pe toata lumea “buni de nimic”. El este acel care ia actiuni care le creste suferinta, gandindu-se ca merita. Si pana nu isi recupereaza partea din el care simte ca nu e :destul de bun”, astfel incat sa simta compasiune fata de aceasta, partea care a suferit durerea respingerii si rusinii tatalui sau, nu va empatiza cu oameni pe care i-a sortat deja in categoria “diferiti de mine pentru ca sunt buni de nimic”. Va continua sa propage separare si cruzime catre acesti oameni si nu va fi capabil sa le inteleaga nevoile. Aceasta lume functioneaza ca o
oglinda impartiala. Asta inseamna ca fragmentarea pe care
o vezi in lume, razboiul, prejudiciile,
abatoarele,
sunt o reflectie completa a fragmentarii care se intampla in noi. Cand compasiunea este conditia lumii noastre interioare, va fi conditia lumii exterioare. Este frecvent mai usor sa simti ca ai ceva in comun cu suferinta oamenilor decat cu bucuria lor. Multi oameni argumenteaza ca ar trebui sa simtim compasiune si interconexiune in bucurie, si nu doar in suferinta, si nu e ca nu sunt de acord, dar realitatea este ca bucuria noastra nu chiar are nevoie de noi in acelasi fel ca suferinta noastra. De ce? Pentru ca deja functioneaza. Bucuria nu este aceea care cauzeaza probleme pe planeta noastra. Suferinta o face. Este lipsa noastra de compasiune care creeaza problemele pe planeta asta, este modul in care noi nu am decis sa relationam unii cu altii in mod rprofund sau sa ne percepem la fel care creeaza problemele pe planeta asta… Compasiunea este probabil cel mai critic lucru pe care umanitatea ar trebui sa il dezvolte in lumea de azi. Si sa fiu honesta cu voi supravietuirea speciei noastre depinde acum complet de asta, nu mai este un lux. Nu mai suntem la un punct in care putem astepta sa se trezeasca compasiunea in mod spontan intr-o zi. Sntem intr-un punct al evolutiei unde acum trebuie sa o AJUTAM sa se trezeasca. O saptamana buna!

    Teal, (wish I knew you're real name) you are fantastic. I couldn'nt agree more. I wish I could invite you to dinner sometime. I still eat meat, but my daughters are becoming vegan, and I support that completely, and do my best to join them. I'm old school, and have a long way to go, but so very very few talk about what's truly important, like you do. You inspire me. You validate me. You challenge me. And on top of all of that, you seduce me, with your mind, heart, and body.

    I think it is possible to kill something you have compassion for. As a homesteader, I make sure to provide the best conditions for my livestock and take pleasure in their existence. I thank them for nourishing me with their flesh. After killing an animal, some native american hunters would ask the gods' forgiveness for taking the animal's life. I do the same. I try to follow their example by respecting the land and life I'm in relationship with.

    This video shows exactly why Trump became president. Even though he's an elderly man, little Donald is still clearly visible. He might be harsh and dictatorial but is disarming at the same time (especially when the volume is muted). Many people are able to relate to the insane struggle he's been trough, trying to be something your not trying to impress people that don't exist with stuff that doesn't really matter; the American dream. Even though 'his' perspective is detrimental to evolution, it's hard to hate Trump.

    Compassion is a state when you can use your abilities and wise to really help others to gain higher perspective of reality. If you are in confusion or powerless yourself, you cannot really be a help, you are just in the state of Empathy. Wisdom is also necessary to discriminate what is actually helpful for the evolution of the other being. Most people think that if you feel sorrow when an other being feels sorrow then you are compassionate, but you cannot actually help the other by just being sorrow. you should get out of your sorrow and act with wisdom for bettering the condition of the other. for example, you can understand the other had a nightmare, but you know it was a nightmare and you try to make him/ her feel more comfortable with the fact it was a nighmare, you try to ease it by getting out of it yourself gaining a higher perspective.

    @Teal Swan, I completely agree that compassion is of utmost importance to the survival and the thriving of our species. And, yes, it's becoming evermore evident and pertinent to us now.
    I am glad that you made this video. Several years back, I remember feeling that compassion would be the greatest commodity to our human future. At the time, I was reading futurist entrepreneurial thought leaders, such as Peter Diamansis, who were discussing abundance as our future. And also learning more about the economic side of empathy and compassion from people like Jeremy Rifkin.
    With information technology progressing exponentially and our species on the brink of biological/technilogical/spiritual evolution like we've never seen before, the time for exponential compassion has come.
    I'm launching several initiatives and would love to partner with you and others.

    Interestingly, I often treat people how I treat myself and sometimes hurt feelings result. So, I've been more focused on how my actions would impact people. In order to understand another I allow myself to empathise, feel the pain, and with the love in my heart. I exercise mercy, compassion, and forgiveness. Basically, I do what Teal is explaining. People and the world as a whole is as teal says, a reflection of within. Have love for yourself, you have compassion for yourself, and therefore you are able to do the same for others.

    Teal is such a phony. Just because she often presents videos about psychological and spiritual ideas that can be found from actual reputable sources doesn't make her an expert on that material. If your instinct doesn't alarm you to this woman then do some basic research into her. Her lies are so ridiculous and supported with zero evidence that it makes no sense as to why someone would take what she says at face value. She comes across as such an amateur, like a trailer-park guru.

    I know this sounds paranoid but people are always trying to take advantage of you because a lot of people are still 'animals' and like a predator reflexively attacking prey. When the average person sees you being 'compassionate', 'nice', 'unconditional' and sees your vulnerabilities they will most likely interpret it as weakness and without knowing take advantage of this be it from how they see themselves in comparison to you, to taking advantage of your kindness in such ways as bullying, stealing, dismissing etc. (All you awakened Pisces already know this :P)

    They will be critical of you because modern society values the survival of the fittest and hireachy, whereas a conscious society is sure to value empathy, altruism and understanding.

    I'm going to be two-sided on these lets begin with saying you're awesome and a very good ethical person had to say that because this isn't at all an attack on you for everyday life and with practically every relationship you must have compassion and empathy if you don't and act really mean rude and aggressive most people won't like you and would not hang out with you both are very important ok now ill say my second side people will take advantage of you I'm not saying all but many I know many people that take full advantage of people and have little to no care how they take advantage in my opinion you have to be nice but firm you are a good person so are most people but many aren't and look for people like this to abuse in my opinion but again your awesome

    Pity and compassion are co-suffering, suffering is a negative emotion and is part of repulsion and thereby the opposite of love and attraction. While empathy is a great virtue, co-suffering will only bring more suffering thru what you know as the law of attraction. The key lies in being strong and overcoming the negative emotions of suffering, when your empathy is abused by the ego, and then use that strength to help one another staying clear from giving way to negative emotions while doing so.

    its so disappointing….your assumption that all the people watching your videos would accept the premise that our presidint is cruel and dictatorial…that was your best fragmentation example? not stalin, mao or bin laden?

  • Reply Janice Hosler February 18, 2018 at 11:43 am

    This is what's missing in life it's just about money and numbers and targets not compassion and empathy. If people don't fit in to so called perfection then society seems to have no use for you. It's disgusting and not the world I want too be in. People with mental health issues, homeless people, elderly, people with disabilities are just discarded its sickening and happening across the globe. Very sad hope it all changes asap.

I get it he is easy to point at and sling arrows but come on…. otherwise it was an interesting Video…. people love to hate Trump he is a sad man I know… but its like Endless Hitler Documentaries… after a while it becomes back ground noise and people treat tyrants as cartoons….

    I was with you until you started Trump-shaming. That doesn't strike me as very compassionate on your part. I'm disappointed.

    Teal's video had me until she used President Trump as a negative example. My President Trump has been the most compassionate president in my life time. He is so compassionate towards Americans that he walked away from his comfy life style where he was loved by most people and walked into a political arena where he is constantly being bashed and misrepresented by hateful people who can't accept the results of a fair election and only want government control and insight violence by preaching to resist. Because of our compassionate president we are now safer from ISIS, unemployment is at a all time low for all, boarder security has been increased, peoples pay checks are growing, everyone will receive tax cuts, and our trade deals are more fair. Our president has done more for our country than any other president in recent history. Now that's compassion.

    I came here to genuinely try to retrain myself to be more compassionate but found this to be more political making me question your true intentions and compassion. Compassion should be balanced with caution and reality. For example, do you have compassion for all the people who would starve if you decided to ban meat? Or compassion for the people who lose loved ones due to our soft borders allowing fentanyl to floodour country. Sometimes we have to be tough because we are compassionate. We have to,be tough and standup to those who abuse and exploit compassion. When compassion gets compromised by politics it can make many of us disconnect completely from our compassionate side because we know it is compromised.

  • Reply Surfwtw May 1, 2019 at 3:22 pm

    Can you make a video about how the exploitation of compassion for political agendas causes people to become less,compassionate because they seeing it as a compromised and easily exploitible weakness.

    Even if we are not in pain or in same/similar pain, we can still acknowledge pain of others, and be compassionate towards them
