When a soul empathetically identifies with both the pain and the joy of others...
Then begins to see that in the inner world we are not separated from each other...
And that peace and joy no less than pain and sorrow are shared and collective experiences...
It becomes quite evident to me... my being conscious of you is intertwined with your being conscious of me ...
Thus all that is real to me ... is you my Friends.
Yes, we need to remember the possibility that these weaknesses exist in ourselves and others and, I believe doing so and remembering what I wrote above cautions us to stop and think before we just react to another's ill-will in a negative way. Better still, try to figure out what may have caused their anger and find a way to help them heal if at all possible.Yoda warned about certain Jedis who had a dark side they needed to face. They had childhood trauma, abandonment issues, etc. which made them susceptible to the dark side. Although they were inherently good the dark side had an opening and it was very clever as to know where ones weaknesses reside and how to use it to its advantage to create separation, division, chaos and eventual betrayal to the light side of the force.
Being aware of how the 'dark side', or whoever, can use our empathy and Oneness to manipulate us individually, or groups of us, is what also needed stating....the very Love we live in and treasure.Masters of the light know certain events must unfold for others to evolve by facing these challenges and not all lessons are what we believe them to be. As Yoda said empathy and compassion can be a weakness and used against one unless one is aware of the manipulation.

Empathy, like all gifts from the soul, is a double edged sword.
Just as my smile will be infused into others, so their frown can invade me.
So smile often.
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master...”

Thanks Owlsden ~ i am not too familiar with Arthur's work though his video truly resonates with me...
But note - i do have contacts down in 'OZ' who have mentioned his work (to me) and are great followers of his..
so i appreciate the posting of his video.
Note ~ i truly find it ironic, that its been 43 years since the Moody Blues released their album "In Search of the Lost Cord" and that coincides exactly to the time my daughter (and you) were born ! The seeding of your generation no doubt (in my mind) has (had) much to do with what - i have come to believe as the dawning of the age of Aquarius. Even though there is still debate as to the exact harbinger of this future-now changeover...?
No matter... Still ... i would like to believe your generation was the catalyst that provoked and stirred the current awakening... cos i don't believe in coincidences
Blessing Love ~ Gio
