Creating Compassion
By Barbara Brennan

Allow your passion to fill you,
to flow through you,
even if you begin the communication
in a negative way.

Your passion will carry you
into “at-one-ment”.

It is the release of passion,
when centered in the core,
that brings communion
with another individual,
and thereby creates compassion
in both human beings.

Gayle’s Reflection:

What does that feel like… letting your self be filled with passion? How does one do that?
Easy…Intention and Choice.

In every moment we have the option to allow or resist the presence of passion. The trick is to remember you have the choice. Begin each day in a practice of filling the self with passion, thus making it more available to you throughout the day.

Opening the heart allowing your passion for life to arrive sets a tone for more compassion to show up. Even if it starts out with a negative tone your intention to choose
will alter the flow of passion and begin to release it out into the world.

A friend of mine reminded me last night of an exercise two people can do when they are at odds, needing healing or understanding.

It goes like this…
Have the intention to create a container of silence for 15 minutes.
Sit together in a closed room.
No words, simply allow whatever is in the space to rise and fall away.
Start by centering yourself into your core.
Allow your passion to charge and open from your heart.
Drop it down into your belly as you breathe.
Bring it back up into your heart again and feel what’s there.
Breathe it out and into the room.
Slowly gaze into the eyes of the other and feel.
Stay with the eyes and notice what has arrived to experience and share within the silence for each other.
Notice the rise and fall of energy between you.

Are you seeing and feeling the core essence of yourself?
Of the other? What does it feel like?
Can you remain another 15 minutes in silence with all of this passion-compassion-at-one-ment that is vibrating and circulating in the room? Kinda scary huh?

We long for this kind of silent, intimate communion with ourselves and those we love.
Why are we not offering it regularly to create intimate passionate bonds?
How can we dare to ask for this beautiful opportunity to come together and really experience a release of passion?

I say DARE to do it! Go ahead make your own day!
Find a companion to create some compassion and communion with. So much Love is always available.

How much would the world change if its’ leaders practiced silent compassion with one another allowing the true core of human compassion to reveal itself?

You can begin today with anyone you may have a conflict or love affair with. Create some Compassion for ALL!
I dare you!
I dare myself!

Thank you Barbara, I now choose to allow myself to create compassion.

See you tomorrow,
Love Gayle
