This thread will be complemented frequently. Some of the quotes here are from Roberto Assagioli, and though he was a Kabbala practitioner (read satanist) his contribution for humanity's self understanding can't be omitted easily.

WHAT IS E EMPATHY?

• Truly understanding our other's perspectives.
• Respecting these perspectives even though they are different from our own.
• Supporting our other's efforts at change no matter how great or small the changes seem.
• Valuing other's as whole people, beyond the problems they are presenting.

Empathy as a “vicarious introspection” and “the capacity to think and feel oneself into the inner life of another person [while] simultaneously retaining the stance of an objective observer”. The practice of empathy, becomes what “one wills to understand” about another. This other-directed willingness, however, is based upon an inner-directed willingness to understand the rich tapestry of impulses and complexes forming the backdrop to our own lives. Achieving this teaches us that the conflicts and sufferings of others are similar to our own. “One cannot form an empathic connection to the deeper levels of another unless one has established an empathic connection to those levels in oneself”. Human empathy actually derives from a transcendent Reality — a “spiritual Self who already knows his [the individual’s] problem, his crisis, his perplexity”.

Empathy emanates from Self and that, because we exist as reflections of this Self, we hold the gift of empathy.
Self fulfills the requirements of true empathy by maintaining unbroken relationship to “I” throughout the vastness of life experience. Self, as the true empathic source of “I,” is potentially discernible at all levels of human encounter, from the tragic, through the ordinary, to the sublime. In each case and at each level, Self engages us with profound empathy, with or without our conscious awareness. Our own potential for engaging empathically the vastness of our life experience is a given, since we do not exist apart from Self. Empathy is the key to understanding our connection to all forms of life and all existence. We may even have a keen sense that everything from the tiniest particle of sand to the most distant star is held together in empathic wholeness. Acknowledging this brings us to an irrefutable conclusion that it is our challenge, as projections of Self, to reflect the spiritual dynamic of empathy with increasing coherency within ourselves and in our relationships with others. The appropriate response of “I” to this continuous engagement with Self is to emulate Self’s empathic presence. This results in greater empathy toward ourselves and others.

Implications
If we accept this complementarity of transcendence and descendence, and the inclusion of a new principle with an old, there are a number of implications for our work, both with ourselves and with others. The first is that the “direction” of the process of human maturation is into the world rather than away from, or above, it. Rather than conceiving of life as a journey to the Higher Self we can see it as the Higher Self coming more and more into ordinary life. In fact, it is helpful to think of the Higher Self as present in daily life from the very beginning, with the connection to this spiritual core then being wounded and attenuated by trauma, circumstance, and/or enculturation. John Firman and Ann Gila refer to this as the “primal wound” and I have used the term “soul wound” in my writing.
Early in life, if not in utero, there can be “loss of soul” and consequent acute, or chronic, disconnection from this source of being, meaning, and direction within us. As we work to heal this wound and restore the connection, we also are working to help the Higher Self descend and incarnate fully. There are many phases and stages to this work, but the outcome we seek is full incarnation of our spiritual force, qualities, and calling in the present moment within the context of our daily life. Our life development can therefore be seen as a journey of the Higher Self to full incarnation in the world as well as an awakening to this spiritual center within us. A second implication is that in this process of incarnation experiences of darkness are of equal value to those of light. This darkness may be our own suffering, our unconscious or that of others, or darkness in the world, including the presence of evil. All this needs to be confronted and worked with, not just as a block to the process of maturation, but rather as the very means of spiritual incarnation. We need to learn, as Higher Selves, to embrace the full spectrum of our human experience, dark and light, in order to realize the full maturity and power of our ordinary lives. Our dark places are as much teachers as our light, and the Higher Self, in fact, needs them in order to be fully realized. A third implication is that the emphasis in psycho-spiritual work shifts to ordinary life and away from special and heightened living. The ordinary is the extraordinary, and is the means by which the Higher Self comes fully into the world. Without all the details of existence, and the particularity of any one life, the Higher Self remains abstracted, ungrounded, and incomplete. This can lead to a hidden form of spiritual suffering where there is consciousness of the Higher Self, but not sufficient practical grounding in the real world. It can lead, in the worst case, to cult development and infantile regression in the name of spiritual life. Dorothy Maclean, one of the founders of Findhorn, once said to me, “There is nothing but ordinary life,” and what she meant was that the proof of the Higher Self is in the living of its energies in daily existence.
Self Psychology. Self psychologist and theorist Heinz Kohut describes empathy as a “vicarious introspection” and “the capacity to think and feel oneself into the inner life of another person [while] simultaneously retaining the stance of an objective observer” (Kohut 1984, p. 82, 85).
"One cannot form an empathic connection to the deeper levels of another unless one has established an empathic connection to those levels in oneself.”
Human empathy actually derives from a transcendent Reality — a “spiritual Self who already knows his [the individual’s] problem, his crisis, his perplexity”.
Empathy is by its nature an energy of the spirit — an energy and a gift which is continuously available to us.
Accounts of religious experience often speak of a “call” from God, or a “pull” from some Higher Power; this sometimes starts a “dialogue” between the man and this “Higher Source,” in which each alternately invokes and evokes the other.

  • I have to copy this clip from another thread simply because @37:00 minute mark it explain how people has lost empathy in the past.


    Harald Kautz Vella | Black Goo, Black Magick, Spider Beings, & The Elite
    Published on Sep 22, 2015
    Brace yourself! German researcher, Harald Kautz Vella joins THC to break down his deep level research into the true nature of the Elite's campaigns against humanity. According to Harald's research, an invading version of what is knows as "black goo" landed on our planet roughly 80,000 years ago. This black goo could be considered a type of alien A.I. or a "seed device" for creating life within a biosphere. This invader does not belong here, and has been attempting to unpack it's program to the determent of our natural order. It contains remnants of it's original lifeforms, spider type beings, which have been coaxing the elite into carrying out their plans for Earth bound manifestation for as long as we know. Our energies have been used as feed, and our environment has been tweaked to make the people weak. The plan to get these higher dimensional Archonic beings to "hook" into their human husks is getting closer all the time, and is at the heart of the transhumanist agenda. It's a lot to take in. I hope you're sitting down.

    The unusual stuff comes in at Minute 50:32 and onwards. Only time will tell if any of this proves to be true. Nonetheless, it makes for some thought-provoking listening. So... :) @42:00 Only humans are capable of creativity

    In gangstalking, the handler is very empathetic to the target, because a hive mind is set up. ie. they read your thoughts.
    image
    Very good point and I agree with it. There is one obstacle to reach full empathy in this case though. It is called "Creativity". Inventing way of managing situation for possessing others energies doesn't constitute Creativity. The sick from "Chosen People Syndrome" entities are very skillful in this "practice".
    The "gang" situation you describe drut can be seen in most animal groups. I'll give you an example. If you wound a cat in your neighborhood, soon all cats will be aware of it, and will stay away from you. How all cats in the same time can know that you are dangerous? Well, this is the way the informational/energetic field works. It is called telepathy - an informational exchange. There is no Creativity in it. For it to work is necessary to know the exact vibrational field you are connected with.

    I've describe how it works with musicians before - in the musical thread I think. But for the case of empathy I'll describe it again here.
    Imagine a band. No leaders in a band, just creative musicians. Each one of them have creative thoughts and is connected with the highest source called G-O-D. Each one of this musicians have different point of observation on the piece of music/information they perform, a different angle of vision. Adding to that vision it's own emotions and feelings (demons and reptiles have no feelings as you know), and connecting with the visions and emotions of others create piece of music you never forget, Ever Green Truth, that have no decay, and is Out of Time experience. The connection btwn this musician in the Band is called Empathic, or Empathy. The result of this connection bring always Happiness. Always! You can go and listen interviews with famous musicians about how happy they were after they created a music piece that become Ever Green. On joo toob is a lot of this kind of interviews.
    Now, compare this Empathy with the Telepathy of gangstalking, and you'll see the difference. :)

    By the way - those who lack Creativity always steal from others, and copy it in the worst way in their "enterprise". Last good example is DameQ (with the seven dwarfs) that copied everything from here into their sty. Copying without adding own creative vision become perversion, and it is typical for the partially penised entities there. And they still do copy it daily - at least 50 "guest" visits/day is from them. :) Good copy machine lmao_sm

    One way to detect non-creative site/forum is the hierarchical structure. Everything based on hierarchy lack of creativity and is gang type forum/site.
    Here we have no hierarchy. Hierarchy (type pyramid) soon or later lead to self destruction. Everything based on hierarchical structure is to be destroyed - soon or later, as it lack of Creativity.

    About Creativity.
    Well, I think we have misunderstanding in the meaning of this word. Creativity propagate the Spirit. Everything originate from the Spirit and at the very end unite in Him(It? - there is no gender). You are talking music after a dream. But you don't know where you've been during the time when you sleep. You just wake up with music in your head. Why we sleep, where we are during this time? Are we dead? No of course. We are in duality drut. When we sleep our souls are in the astral and emotionally go through all previous logical day experience - experience it again, but this time emotionally. There lay the catch for the mind virus. The soul have not logical thinking drut, and in fact it is a female form (if we exclude the neutral and non-dual Spirit) - it/she have emotional life. And is easy to deceive as she/it take the illusion for reality.

    The hive mind increases creativity (ie. finding solution) in the same way that putting multiple computers on a network would speed up simulations.
    image

    Is not Creativity drut, it is "finding solution" stuff. Animals have that too, but this is not Creativity. It can be evil meme, but is not Creativity. Empathy and Creativity is tightly connected with Love, and in fact they are in Unity all.

    Demons/Archones and demonic minded people are dead, though they don't know this yet. To be government)">CIA handler you must be demonic minded, otherwise the hierarchical system will throw you out, let's not talk for other consequences.

  • Authenticity and Empathy: Daniel Goleman and Bill George

    Published on Mar 24, 2015
    Leadership depends on tuning into people, talking to them in a way they understand, motivating them, influencing them, and listening to them. Daniel Goleman talked with Bill George about how a leader's empathy is empty without authenticity.

She has developed faculty curricula for "Teaching the Teachers" of Psychotherapy that is used by faculty psychiatrists. Dr. Riess's empathy training curricula are implemented internationally in healthcare as well as in business.



    My comment:
    Dear Dr. Reiss, you are delusional. Empathy can not be learned (as in school), but can be rediscovered/unveiled. I agree to some extend that family environment is very important for development of the empathy. But you can't learn it - you have to have it inside you. You are born with it. It is a talent dear Dr. Reiss - either you have it, or you don't. What you are really suggesting (by learning) is the development of sociopathy/psychopathy. Because you can't learn it, then you must fake it - fake feelings and imitations - it is the © and ® of the sociopaths and psychopaths. You have to know dear about it - at the end Harvard is well known champion of erecting sociopaths&psychopaths - much more that all other universities altogether. And TED :) - my favorite and famous "tribune" as regards to censorship :D
