“Compassion is what will make you able to integrate your human nature with God.” COL bk.2, 15:III
I have never read this statement anywhere else in recent channeled writings—that compassion will integrate us with God. But I can believe it, for compassion is an explication of love. It gives us something to cling to when times are tough. It gives us the right attitude toward our brothers and sisters in this world.
I think compassion is particularly potent when we have anger. The way to transmute anger is to realize compassion toward the one who seems to be giving us grief. Thich Nhat Hanh says a great deal about this in his classic book entitled, simply, Anger. If we realize that the one who attacked us is suffering as we are, our anger at the attack will dissolve, and in its place will be compassion, which is healing.
But Choose Only Love takes this concept farther along. We actually “integrate” our human nature with God when we exhibit compassion. And who among us does not want this? We want to be One with God, as He intended.
It is not hard to give compassion the highest place in our mind and heart. All of us deserve compassion when we slip up and hurt another person in our circle. We deserve to give compassion to ourselves, which will lead us to forgive ourselves. And then we turn this compassion outward, to the one who has hurt us, and then forgiveness heals.
Meditate a bit on compassion today. I think we will find gems there, gems that will enhance our living.
