Empathy > Sympathy

Empathy: the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.

Sympathy: feelings of pity and sorrow for someone else’s misfortune.

pity: the feeling of sorrow and compassion caused by the suffering and misfortunes of others.

sorrow: a feeling of deep distress caused by loss, disappointment, or other misfortune suffered by oneself or others.

distress: sadness or displeasure caused by the nonfulfillment of one’s hopes or expectations.

If we can—just for a second—take the time out of our day and tell ourselves “I empathize with you” rather then “I sympathize with you,” this world would be a better place. We have this world confused at times. This world doesn’t need more wars, this world doesn’t need more religious people, this world needs more compassion. A world full of love is a world full of life. 

I have been through a lot—I think we all got the point already. I don’t live in the past, I live in the present. Sometimes, being hurt can overtake you when you believe that your voice doesn’t matter. Every voice matters. We all matter. 

I think about death a lot. Even though I went through it, I still fear it. Not fearing death itself but rather wondering: DID I DO ENOUGH? The first thing I am doing when I become wealthy is helping others. Move somewhere more green and serene, be with nature, write a book about who I am and who I want to become. See how I said when. Not “if” I became wealthy. 

Self love

I am in the process of loving who I am. I am welcoming all parts of myself, with, love. The second you feel pity for yourself, you start to lose the human part of you. ego> aside it’s okay to feel pride with stuff that you do or accomplish. You feel more accomplished when you succeed at something. Loving yourself isn’t a bad thing, just remember to always give that same love to other people. Learn how to ignore the people that try and harm you. Never kill someone with kindness, sometimes you might kill yourself with it instead. Kill them with silence. Understand that your energy is not meant for everyone.

I read this book the other day called “Mind Platter”; there was a line that read

“Don’t break a bird’s wings and then tell it to fly. Don’t break a heart and then tell it to love. Don’t break a soul and then tell it to be happy.” -Mind Platter

Conclusion 

Moving forward, my life is in my hands and I’ll keep trying remaining true to myself and to others. Find empathy rather the sympathy. Choose love rather than hate. Give yourself the time you need to heal. 

Ps. Thank you for reading.

HEART AND BRAIN

Life. We all have it, we all experience it differently.

I wanted to touch base on something that my experience taught me.

The heart and brain will never be one. They are not friends and will never be friends. My heart is depressed and my brain is overloaded with information.

Not all are equal, just like the heart is not equal to the brain. The brain fights for survival and logics. The heart fights for compassion, and fairness. We are loving beings at the end of the day.

What is the true meaning to life? I don’t think anyone knows. I don’t know much. I can’t even tell you what I want to do from this point out. I can tell you, though, that a smile is better than a frown.

A child is pure. A child doesn’t know what lies are. They are usually heartfelt and don’t understand what life is. Life is their playground until one day, someone shuts them up. Their brain registers a protection mechanism.

Life isn’t always rainbows and unfortunately, one day we grow old. Stupidity sells. . That has nothing to do with the heart. The heart feels, yet the brain is more logical. The heart knows it never dies, but the brain is aware. The internal battle we all face on a daily basis comes from the heart and the brain always fighting and coming into conflict with one another. They are never at peace.

Learn how to build boundaries around a broken heart.

Broken can be healed. Life isn’t always as it seems. What is right for us here isn’t always right for some one else far away. This world is separated. People are divided. There is a lot of real life issue that we face on a day to day basis. We get blinded in not wanting to feel anymore. We can’t always express ourselves because when we do, we get shut down.

Life is a blessing, a gift, a lesson to self reflect on what it is that makes your heart sing. Do something you love and the rest will follow. Don’t look into the bullshit.

All this comes from my own personal experience; none of this comes from me studying or doing anything other than living. We are all different, we are all one for one. We all have some sort of gift that this world needs to see. Don’t be afraid to shine your inner light. That’s what should shine in your darkest moments. I used to feel anger on the inside at times. I used to lash out and all this fire inside was becoming worse then a desert fire. I didn’t understand that this fire also had its own light. This fire set up my biggest light – the light of self reflection.

Where did you go ?

Lost love.
I went to the lost and found the other day looking for you.
They said they never heard of you.
They asked me if I could describe you.
I drew blank.
They asked me when was it that I last saw you.
I drew blank.
I left looking for you.
Found that I was creating hate in the search for you.
Building up false images of what I thought you were.
I don’t even know when was the last time I remember feeling you.
Feeling that jolt that runs down my body, of happiness. Now, all I feel is that jolt of rage. Body shaking, clinging on to something that I want to make me feel like what you made me feel.

                           L O V E

I was there this whole time, I was never lost. Have you ever heard of that expression blinded by love?
You were blinded by your own ego. Love can be overwhelming at times. We are all capable of feeling it. Not all are capable of expressing it. Sometimes people neglect me… I still love them. I understand them. I am also the ruler of compassion and empathy. Within compassion, I sympathize to those who don’t understand how strong I am.
Some look to others for love. While they are love. Ego blocks me out. People confuse me for lust. Most people don’t understand that lust isn’t love.
I heard that you’ve been looking for me. I haven’t been missing, I never left. I am always here and will always be here. You need to find yourself to love again. You need to forgive what gave you that toxic taste in your mouth, that turned me into hate.
Sincerely, Love

Broken word’s

I sit here and wait for words to come to life on this paper, knowing that nothing will bring you back regardless of what I write.

Free yourself

We hear the pain In the voices of people who suffer from oppression. We see the blood of the victims suffering from careless acts of greed.

We forget what it’s like feeling human to satisfy the ego rejecting the divinity which ultimately leads to the present moment. Praying to the same universal God to heal us from the duality that may have us feeling confused.

Tears

Lost in the transition, I fell in the hole. Digging, I couldn’t get out; the further I went, the deeper it felt. Losing hope I saw no light, everything was just a big old mess, deeper I look the emptier it felt. Now I have this void, and I am searching for the fulfillment there. It was my reflection from the tears that lead me to where I am now.

Burning through time

Been through the pits and of hell and back. Don’t really have much to say. Seen enough to know that most of us are doing our best in making it another day. This void we feeling what is the root? Let’s go searching for it together or let’s get lost in the nonsense. Either or I’m down for both just know that whichever you we choose we’ll have to live with. Maybe it’s just a way of seeing a different side to this thing we call love or maybe it’s just another roadblock to end. Let’s just finish what we started before the world sees who we really are.

SELF+LOVE= ?

There comes a time in life when we need to learn how to forgive ourselves for not knowing any better. Everyone has an opinion on how they feel about certain things, everyone is doing their best in trying to make sense of what is happening in the world they live in. Some of us are here others are not, each holds true.

I find myself getting lost in the low vibrations that life has to offer, in therapy I heard this saying that goes something like this ” I often find myself in the bottom of the surface of the ocean needing to climb up to the top to interact with the world. At times I find some people that meet me at the bottom but that feeling feels unfamiliar. So I don’t know how to act when someone is willing to meet me where I am at.

I see a lot of injustice in the world, whether it’s the black lives matter movement or the humanitarian crisis in Yemen and or the pandemic sweeping the globe. I find myself asking myself where is the answer within all this noise that is happening, where do we find the clarity in everything happening? I see some moment’s throughout the day where people are existing but I ask myself another question is it existing or is it escaping?

Life isn’t a journey, it’s a story. How you tell your story is how others will define how you are. Even then who cares about how others view you live can either be shortlived and have an impact and or long-lived without even an imprint on how you managed to see come out of this world. Throughout life, people will be a mirrored image of who you are and what parts of you that need to be healed for you to grow.

Yes, life isn’t best lived when you only think about yourself but you are all you got in this world so make the best of who you are for yourself so that when the time comes in loving others, you would understand that the love you have for yourself is the love you have for others. THIS FOR ME HAS BEEN THE HARDEST PART.

Knowing yourself with any slight knowledge of empathy might have you feeling compassion for yourself and all your struggles, struggles don’t define who you are you overcoming them and making them part of the story is ultimately how you grow as a person. Trust in yourself to know that who you are is who you are. Don’t allow injustice in the world to control your viewpoint.

Every single soul on this planet is interconnected with the same source of energy that is controlling the world. As long as there is breathe there is life.

PLANTING


Isolated in the mind. Grow the thought. We were leaving behind only the memories. So we went looking to relive a moment and losing the traces of the footsteps that got us to where we are now. So we created different trails with steps that weren’t ours. Leaving us wondering what’s was the whole idea behind leaving in the first place.
