Empathy – It’s all about resonance.

Right now I’m at the beach, again. It’s a yearly event we have in our family. We like to go to Rockaway Beach in Oregon.

It’s a very nice day, you can see behind me here, it’s a blue sky and sunny and very nice. I’ve been out for a few hours now – walking and soaking up the sun and looking at people and all that. It’s very nice.

And I brought my video camera, so why not shoot a video while I’m out? I started this video series, Emotions from A to Z and I have come to the letter E, and I want to talk about Empathy.

As I was sitting on the beach, I was pondering about what Empathy is, and I think it can be explained from a perspective of physics. I have an engineering degree in Telecommunications, it’s about wave technology and all that stuff. You know, this universe is basically made up of vibrations and frequency, and I think you can use this part of physics to explain what goes on on the subtle levels as well, not just in radio communication and communications between cellphones and all that.

It’s fascinating and all, but I think you can use it on everything. It’s resonance, that’s what it’s all about. You know, you have two antennas and you want to send a radio communication from radio antenna A to antenna B, you need to tune antenna B to the same frequency of antenna A, you want that resonance so you can receive the transmission.

I think also our emotional centers are transmitters and receivers as well, just like an antenna. It’s just that the frequency is a lot higher – a LOT higher. But the principles are the same.

So, let’s say for example you have a group of people who are going to watch the football game on TV, and when they get together that vibration of enjoying the game and rooting for their team, something happens and it’s like the power of this group of people is so much greater when they are together than when they are individuals, because their passion for their team, the joy of watching this game on TV and rooting for their team – there is a resonance between all of them, so the amplitude, you know the power, of this wavefront they create is so much greater. So they are attracted to each other because they receive what they themselves are sending out, so everything is just enhanced.

And the same thing goes if – let’s say you have a group of people gathering at the town hall and they have posters and protesting against – whatever – and they write on these signs, and they are being very angry and frustrated, and they all agree with each other, they are right, this is a bad thing, we should stop this.

So this little group of people is more powerful than they are as individuals. What they are creating though might not be so beneficial for the rest of humanity, but that’s not really the point. They are being very empathic toward each other, right.

So they pick up the next persons anger, because it resonates with their own anger, so they feel even more justified about their own anger.

But really, there is no right or wrong, it’s just a matter of resonance. So we tend to resonate toward people who feel the same way we do about life as we do.

But, if we take this from a third perspective, a third example.

Let’s say you have a group of buddhist monks on the other side of the planet, on a mountain top, chanting. They are in this pure state of love, no judgement – they are connected to the cosmic flow of life and unconditional love. They channel it into their bodies and they radiate it out again.

And this group of people, this group of monks, sitting on that mountain top – they are so powerful because unconditional love is the master vibration. It’s like, nothing can tamper with it, because it is balanced. It’s not polarized in any way. It’s like this pure still point which can’t be affected.

So these monks sitting on this mountain top on the other side of the world, they are affecting the whole world. People who are carrying this vibration in their hearts are, subconsciously, picking up this vibration, so they are going to feel it. And I think still it’s a matter of physics.

As more and more people on this planet are waking up to the fact that they are very powerful creators, through their thoughts, emotional centers and also through their hearts, with this unconditional love, they can change the world.

And I think – even though we are just individuals – we are connected with, through resonance, every other individual who also wants to see a better world.

So together we make this grid of people, hooked up to this cosmic wave of love, and they are receiving it and transmitting it, and it changes them from the inside out. It rewrites their cells, clears out debris, because this unconditional love is balanced. So the more you bring it into your body, the more you purge whatever is polarized within you, both your thoughts, your emotions and everything – it balances.

That’s a very powerful way of being empathic.

But I think – I briefly mentioned this in another video about compassion – I see it like this compassion is something you feel for someone, while empathy is something you feel as someone. Basically, there is a resonance.

So you feel someone is in pain, which means on some level, you are carrying the same pain, because you understand it, you resonate with it on some level. It might not be as big as what the other person is carrying, but it might be big enough for you to pick it up.

And this is how we relate to the world, though resonance, physics. At least that is one way of explaining it. I’m sure it’s really too complex for the brain to understand it in any way, but I have found this to be a helpful way to explain it.

So, I think I am going to end it. Next time, F – Fear, that’s a big one.

So stay tuned, OK. Bye!

Being misunderstood – Your responsibility is you path, your perspectives and your definitions.

Misunderstood? It’s not your job to be understood

It’s was a beautiful day – not a cloud in sight – which was very nice.

Being misunderstood is OK – Walk the path your way. Others not getting it is OK. paul bica CC BY (photo cropped)

As I was walking out the door I was wondering, you know, “where do I go?”. I like to walk different places and find and discover new places. I chose to simply follow my intuition, so I was like just follow this road and see what happens.

And I thought I knew what was down that particular path, because I have been down in that area many times. So I was thinking: Dude, you know, let’s just trust this instinct and go down here. I ended up in this beautiful park. There was a little creek behind me where I shot a video and there were benches all around. You know, people have done a really good job down there. It was beautiful.

So, I’m pleased! – By the fact that I chose to follow my intuition and that little inner voice telling me where to go.

So I started pondering about how it feels to be misunderstood…

I don’t know if it is really an emotion or something else, but… it’s a little bit like… It can be confusing. I remember from my childhood – I felt so misunderstood all the time. Trying to convey my knowingness to other people and, you know… when they come from a different place than you do, it’s really easy to get misunderstood. And I think ultimately we are always misunderstood on some level. It depends on how much you resonate with the people you are talking to.

I saw a video the other day. Someone asked: Is a Buddha (you know, someone who is enlightened) bound to be misunderstood? I think it was Osho. He said, yes, a Buddha is always misunderstood because he is trying put into words what can not be put into words.
And I think this is what we humans try to do all the time. We look around us and we have to define all these things. We have to put them into little boxes so we can present them in words. And so it is very easy to become trapped in the mind when we are doing this. That’s what happened in this society. We have become so mind oriented that we actually lost sight of the real word in a sense – we think we know what is in front of us because we have defined it in a certain way, when in fact that definition is very limited compared to reality itself.

So when we allow ourselves to just release all our inner definitions, release all we think we know about the world, the world will reveal to us a bigger aspect that we did not see before. And I think this is a path we can be on forever. There is always more to creation than meets the eye. It is simply about total utter allowance. And we can try to convey to people what we know, but let’s not be to concerned about being understood or not, because you and I are not in charge of how others view their world.

So if they misunderstand us and get angry at us, when our intention was to – you know, when they take what we said in a completely different way than we intended, it’s really not our responsibility – so, please don’t feel bad about that. I used to feel bad about that all the time, but I grew tired of it after a while.

So I think that is my main message. Don’t worry about being misunderstood. It is not your responsibility to be understood. You are just here to, you know, experience life in your way, and grow and evolve and… release your definitions all together if you wish – or create new ones.

It is your choice.

No one can tell you what you are to do in this life.

So – Have a Great day! I am having a good day and I hope your are having a great day too. Take care. Bye!
