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!
