A Teaching on compassion and mercy
Beloved Kuan Yin,
I AM Kuan Yin. I AM coming to you this day to give you a short Teaching.
I seldom come. And thus, follow my words with double attention. Not because I want it this way, but because you need it.
I am coming to teach you compassion and mercy. Because if you don’t have these qualities in your hearts, you won’t be able to enter a new epoch too come.
Compassion and mercy are manifested not only in your care about your neighbours. These qualities of your heart are cosmic in nature and should spread lo all living beings. Your caring of all living beings should be identical to caring of your own mother.
When minds of the world are ruled by just these two qualities – compassion and mercy - the world will be abandoned by such negative manifestations of human consciousness as wars, acts of terrorism and hatred. Many other qualities adherent to mankind now will be relegated to oblivion.
And the main thing that will be saved is your care of all living beings and your Love to any Divine manifestation.
How often in your lives do you think about the way you can influence everything surrounding you if just these two qualities - compassion and mercy - will make their homes in your heart? I ask you not to confuse these qualities with pity and caring of those close to you. Because when you experience affection towards your neighbours and try to experience mercy and compassion to them as it seems to you, it will be you who will suffer. Because qualities of compassion and mercy, if they are really manifested by you, do not depend on relation degree between you and those people to whom you feel compassion and mercy.
You may not know the people, who suffer or need help at all, but sending Love and help from the bottom of your heart you are capable of changing the situation they are involved in, and Divine justice will bypass this soul or will send down to it the easiest way of working out the karma.
The whole problem roots from your notion of mercy and compassion being different from ours.
Your viewpoint covers the current incarnation or even a short period of this incarnation. That is why when you see people suffering and feel you are unable to help them you get upset and also start suffering.
Divine compassion lies a bit higher than human images of compassion, and it concerns not so much physical body as saving human souls. And what looks to you as awful and unfair, from our view of the same situation will look as the quickest and the easiest opportunity for a soul to pay back the karmic burden.
It is just the viewpoint that matters. We consider the whole chain of previous incarnations and see what incarnation is the best to be prepared for the soul suffering now.
It does not mean that you should stay indifferent and just pass by those who need help. It means only that everyone is to work out the layer of karma whose turn to be worked out has come. And then when you render help to the person who needs your help you should first and foremost worry about his soul, and not about his physical body. Because it is his soul suffering first of all, and afterwards this suffering is manifested by sores, illnesses and unfavourable karmic situations on the physical plane.
You should render help on the physical plane, but you should always bear in mind that all happening to you on the physical plane is a consequence of deeds, thoughts and feelings occurred in the past. And in order to remedy the situation on the physical plane consciousness of the people who are suffering must be amended.
Unfortunately the karma happens to be so heavy that a person is incapable of realizing that everything he was called upon to face is a sequence of the wrong deeds of his own committed by him in the past. He is not capable to realize karmic bonds and karmic retribution. In this case when you are compassionate to the soul of this person, on your impulse of Love and compassion this person’s soul gets an additional impulse which can help it to tear itself away from the vicious circle of causes and effects and to rise above them. And even when a person is dying, on your feeling of compassion and due to the calls made by you to save his soul he is capable of rising in his consciousness to the level when angels and other creatures of Light are able to catch him up and to help this person’s soul in the thinner plane already.
That is why I have come to you today to clarify some issues dealing with your attitude to suffering souls.
At the moment when you feel a true compassion and mercy to suffering individuals you give them a part of your achievements, and on your achievements these souls are able to rise higher.
That is why to experience a true compassion and mercy one should obtain a certain momentum of achievements.
There are Buddhas and Bodhisattvas among you who have a true compassion and mercy, but most people understand mercy just as pity.
At the time when a true mercy and compassion become constant companions of the most of mankind, sufferings will abandon your world bit by bit. Sufferings purify your souls because the soul that is suffering balances a large layer of karma.
At present it is impossible to do without it since the karma of the mankind is very heavy. But the mankind is gradually moving in the necessary direction pointed by us. And we would like you not to stop on the Path. There is too much work waiting ahead.
I AM Kuan Yin.
