Empathy is being inspired by someone else’s dream.  It is an awareness of the false and choosing to follow the truth.  Empathy seeks justice and improving the social condition one story at a time.  It recognizes that just because many people refuse to, or are incapable of understanding, it is not a negotiation.  Empathy is a gift.

Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope that you enjoy your visit.


  1. I just this evening finished drafting a speech about compassion creating connections. A similar (and appreciated) vein.

    • Eric, I bet it is wonderful. Hopefully you will post it where I can see it. Too many connections possible, and too few people willing to walk across the room to each other!

      • It’s a contest speech. At some point I will video and likely share it… if it’s well enough delivered. 🙂

      • Interesting, what organization? Well, win or lose, it sounds great!

      • Each Spring, Toastmasters holds its International Speech Contest. It’s a progressive series of contests that launch at local club levels and culminates in August at the organization’s Annual Convention. The winner (out of 30,000+ who begin at the entry level) is ‘crowned’ the World Champion of Public Speaking. It’s fun and challenging. More importantly, it allows people to share their messages of inspiration and motivation.

  2. Empathy can create amazing connections between people.

    • Thank you ~ I hope so. I know that my personality profile only represents 2% of the population, yet look how much empathy they have for healing the world. I get to meet the best of the elite here! ❤

  3. Beautiful message! All the best to you!, Aquileana 😀
