Definition von Mitgefühl


Avalokiteshvara, Bodhisattva des universellen Mitgefühls

Nach Hawkins bedeutet Mitgefühl angesichts von anhaltender Not und Widrigkeiten, unendliche Geduld und zu jeder Zeit und unter allen Umständen eine gütige, barmherzige und liebevolle Haltung einzunehmen. Dies gilt auch für das eigene Selbst und für die eigenen Gedanken.

 

Mitgefühl schwingt auf der Bewusstseinsebene von 560 und ist eines der machtvollsten aller Attraktorfelder. Durch wirkliches Verständis darüber, was es bedeutet, ein Mensch zu sein, erwächst Mitgefühl – für andere und sich selbst – und löst damit das Einteilen, Beurteilen, Verurteilen und Verdammen ab. Mitgefühl transformiert die Wahrnehmung in Vision.

Mitgefühl als Bewusstseinebene ist die Ebene von Heiligen, spirituellen Heilern und fortgeschritten spirituellen Schülern. In der Evolution des Bewusstseins entwickelt sich Liebe zu bedingungsloser Liebe und weiter zu Mitgefühl.

Mitleid wird mitunter fälschlicherweise mit Mitgefühl verwechselt. Mitleid ist selbstzentriertes Mitleiden.

 

Wenn Liebe und Barmherzigkeit durch Mitgefühl aufrechterhalten werden, ist Leiden nicht möglich.

Mitgefühl – Verständnis für die menschliche Geworfenheit

Die Umstände des Menschseins – Conditio humana
Ein Mensch wird geboren
  • ohne bewusste Erinnerung an eine Wahl/Entscheidung für
    • einen Tierkörper samt Denk- und Gefühlsorganen
    • (eventuell schwierige) Familienverhältnisse, soziales Leben in einer komplexen Zivilisation
  • ohne Wissen
    • des eigenen Karmas und Gruppenkarmas
    • der unsichtbaren negativ beeinflussenden Energiefelder
    • seiner Identität
  • mit der Notwendigkeit
    • ein Gefühl für sich selbst und seine Identität zu entwickeln
    • umfangreiche, komplizierte Fertigkeiten auf vielen Ebenen zu erlernen, um zu überleben
  • mit der Folge, der
    • Abspaltung eines Aspekts des Selbstbildes, das zum inneren Feind, zum Angreifer, wird und Aufrührer von Schuld, Angst und Gewissensbissen sowie unaufhörlicher Selbstverurteilung
  • mit der Auseinandersetzung
    • bewusster und
    • unbewusster Daten und Energiefelder
    • überwältigender Erfahrungen
  • einem fehlerhaften Gehirn
    • mit seinen eingebauten Mechanismus von Belohnung und Wohlgefühl
    • seiner naiven, leicht programmierbaren Software
    • mit sofortiger Umsetzung einer Erfahrung, ohne sie ausgiebig zu ergründen
    • mit Vergesslichkeit und dem Verlust erheblicher Datenanteile
  • mit dem Potential verdrängter Inhalte schmerzhafter Natur als potentielle Munition für
    • Selbstangriffe
    • Selbstquälerei
    • Schuldbewusstsein
    • Gewissensbisse
    • Selbstmord
    • Projektion
    • Angst vor Angriffen von außen (Projektion)
    • Paranoia

Wenn man sich so mit innerem Verständnis die Situation des Menschen vor Augen hält, wird klar, dass seine Aussichten auf Überleben, Glück und Erfolg aufgrund seiner beschränkten Mittel fragwürdig sind. In weitem Umfang gelingt nicht einmal das Überleben und Millionen Menschen sterben in vielerlei gefährlichen Fallen und Katastrophen. Selbst wenn man persönlich nichts damit zu tun hat, kann man in den Ego-Problemen der Gesellschaft mit gefangen werden, welche sich als Krieg, Pest, Hungersnot oder Unfälle manifestieren.

Zitate zum Thema Mitgefühl / Compassion

Zitate von D. Hawkins

⚠ Achtung Siehe Power vs. Truth (engl.) Januar 2013

 

 

  • Aufgrund des Mitgefühls wächst der Wunsch, eher zu verstehen als zu verurteilen. Mit Verständnis sehen wir, dass die Menschen tatsächlich nicht anders sein können, als sie in einem gegebenen Augenblick sind. Das All-sehende Auge, S. 347, 2005

 

  • Man legt sein eigenes Schicksal durch Wahl fest. Es gibt keine willkürlichen Mächte, mit denen man rechnen müsste. Liebe wählt Liebe und geht zur Liebe. Der Mechanismus von Vergebung gewährt eben diese Vergebung. Das gesamte Universum ist von Mitgefühl umschlossen, das allen zugänglich ist. Gebet ist wirksam. GOTT "entscheidet" nicht in irgendeiner willkürlichen Art. Die innewohnenden Eigenschaften des Göttlichen sind Barmherzigkeit und Mitgefühl. Licht des Alls. Die Wirklichkeit des Göttlichen, S. 364, 2006

 

  • Leute unter dem Bewusstseinsniveau 200 haben keine Wahl, ihre Gedanken zurückzuweisen. Dafür verdienen sie um so mehr unser Mitgefühl. Wir haben jedoch die Macht, Gedanken und deren aufputschende Reizwirkung abzuweisen. Das ist eine immense Leistung. Ihr habt das Recht abzuweisen. Tustin Seminar Titel unbekannt, 22. November 2003

 

  • Frage: Wie kann ich mitfühlen, ohne dabei zu verurteilen?
    Antwort: Erkenne, dass es sich um eine Wechselbeziehung der Schöpfung handelt und sieh, wie das Karma sich entfaltet. Du bist bereits selbst das Mitgefühl, andernfalls wäre diese Frage nicht in dir aufgetaucht. Sedona Seminar Vision, 3 DVD-Set, 25. Februar 2005

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

 

 

 

(↓)

The physical and mental health of an individual is implicit along the path of awakening.

 

 

 

  • Spiritual truth, then, is universally true and without variation through time or place. It always brings peace, harmony, accord, love, compassion, and mercy. Truth can be identified by these qualities. All else is the invention of the ego. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 40, 2001

 

  • Choose to be easygoing, benign, forgiving, compassionate and unconditionally loving towards all life in all its expressions without exception, including oneself. Focus on unselfish service and the giving of love, consideration, and respect to all creatures. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 65, 2001

 

(↓)

Drawn to Holy Company

 

  • Ask for direction and divine assistance and surrender all personal will through devotion. Dedicate one’s life to the service of God. Choose love and peace above all other options. Commit to the goal of unconditional love and compassion for all life in all its expression and surrender all judgment to God. The Eye of the I From Which Nothing is Hidden, S. 201, 2001

 

  • One's inner spiritual evolution is of greater value to society than any form of doingness. The level of compassion radiates out and contributes silently to mankind's wisdom. I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 301, 2003

 

 


 

  • Question Susanne Spitzer: How may we develop our brains? I would hope each person has the capacity to develop compassion.
    Answer D. Hawkins: It does not seem to be so. To spiritual people it seems plausible, but the study of the evolution of consciousness reveals that there are people who are not capable. Those who cannot, are not even conditioned by Pavlovian conditioning. They put their hand on the plate, get it burned, then turn around and do it again. Interview On the Trilogy of Book 1, 2 and 3, presented by Openexchange.org, Susanne Spitzer, 2004

 

  • We will try to understand the structure of the ego and how it arose over great expanses of time. We will also discover how to be friendly with the ego and dissolve it rather than reinforcing it by attacking it. Every time you attack the ego you reinforce it through guilt and shame. Attacking the ego – making it wrong and labeling it "sin" – is not helpful. You can only transcend it by familiarity, non-condemnation, acceptance, and compassion for one's own ego. The high road to compassion is through understanding and acceptance. Interview On the Trilogy of Book 1, 2 and 3, presented by Openexchange.org, Susanne Spitzer, 2004

 

  • It is important to see the simple things because the ego is built of bricks. Once you remove one or two bricks the whole wall comes falling down. You don't have to go to an ashram for three months and eat figs. Just the willingness in ordinary life to be kind and forgiving and compassionate is enough. Interview Power vs. Force, presented by US magazine In Light Times, Kathryn M. Brinkley, November 2004

 

  • For example, one could therefore choose kindness, compassion, forgiveness, understanding, or non-critical acceptance. One could choose to be unconditionally loving or committed to seeing the innocence of life. Whatever principle is chosen then has to be applied to everyone, including oneself, without exception, and with absolute persistence. Interview The Path of Simplicity, presented by US magazine In Light Times, March 2005

 

 

  • Question UH, Matt Laughlin: In the context of consciousness, when one gives up their life for something greater than their personal self, whether for a friend or nation. […] it really raises one’s level of consciousness.
    Answer DH: Yes, indeed. The willingness to give all the way to the level of even life itself out of compassion and concern and love for your fellow man is a very high gift and it raises one’s level of consciousness rapidly and enormously. Interview Consciousness and Medicine, Matt Laughlin, health magazine Unified Health!, Vol 4, No. 12, pg. 6, summer 2008

 

  • People under LoC 200 don't have the choice to say no to their thoughts. For this, they deserve even more of our compassion. Tustin, Arizona, Seminar Title unknown, 22. November 2003

 

  • The way we dissolve the ego is through love, compassion — not because Buddha or Jesus said so, but because we recognize it for what it is. Sedona Seminar Thought and Ideation, 3 DVD set, 28. February 2004

 

  • Survival is me, ego, the animal is driven by hungryness, never enough, the core of the ego is wantingness. It wants more of everything, is greedy, desiring, insatiable, you cannot satisfy it. The average person is driven by this instinct, this primitivism. This is the basic nature of the ego, survival. Once you know that, you can have compassion for it [the ego] and treat it like a pet. Chicago Seminar Topic unknown, 10. April 2004

 

  • Question: Where is the line between showing love and compassion for someone, and karmically interfering with someone’s life? How can you know when it's one or the other?
    Answer: It's the sophistication of knowing when something is appropriate and when it's inappropriate. You can use kinesiology to ask, in the name of the highest good, is intervening appropriate, yes or no? Sometimes hitting bottom is the source of someone's salvation. Are you truly doing it for their sake? Sedona Seminar Identification and Illusion, 3 DVD set, 14. August 2004

 

  • Emotionality is based on perception. Compassion results from a discernment of truth [LoC 375]. Sedona Seminar The Ego and The Self, 3 DVD set, 11. December 2004

 

  • Question:  How do you be compassionate without forming a judgment?
    Answer: You see that it's the interaction of creation and how karma unfolds. You are already that, otherwise it wouldn't be in you to ask this question. Sedona Seminar Vision, 3 DVD set, 25. February 2005

 

  • Compassion – intuiting the sacredness of all of life […] the Divinity of all of creation. You see the sacredness of all that exists. It stands out from everything when you reach a certain level. It makes it difficult to function for awhile. Sedona Seminar God, Religion and Spirituality, 3 DVD set, 10. December 2005

 

  • Question: I would like to speak compassionately to a person that is dying. He is not spiritual. What can I say?
    Answer: You can bless them. Look deep in their eyes, you can then "see" their soul. In my practice I did that with "impossible" patients where everything had been tried and I connected my actual reality with their actual reality which is the same thing. Sometimes that healed them. Mother Teresa did the same thing. When they were healed they saw that their crippled bodies no longer mattered. Sedona Satsang Q&A, Creative Life Center, 2 CD set, 8. November 2006

 

  • Your commitment to be kind toward all things is what brings up the unkind! It is your commitment that brings it up and your ego says, "Oh, yeah? How about now!" Forgive yourself for being mean and nasty to that person – even though he deserved it! ☺ Sedona Seminar God vs. Science. Limits of the Mind, 3 DVD set, 17. February 2007

 

 

  • Attempt to have compassion for the degree to which the narcissistic core of the ego enslaves humanity. Prescott Seminar Freedom. Morality and Ethics, 3 DVD set, 8. November 2008

  • OM AMI SATTVA MANI PADME HUM.
    Übersetzung: Ich rufe die Buddhas des Lichts und des Mitgefühls, jegliches Kleinod, das in der Lotusblüte auftaucht, vom Kreislauf des Leides befreien. Mantra in Sanskrit, zugesprochen Avalokiteshvara, dem Bodhisattva des universellen Mitgefühls im Mahayana-Buddhismus

 

  • Das ethische Verhalten eines Menschen sollte auf Mitgefühl, Erziehung und sozialen Bindungen basieren; eine religiöse Basis ist nicht notwendig. Ein Mensch würde in einer armseligen Weise handeln, wenn sein Verhalten durch die Angst vor Bestrafung oder die Erwartung einer Belohnung nach dem Tod bestimmt würde. Albert Einstein [BW 499] (1879-1955) deutschstämmiger US-amerikanischer theoretischer Physiker, Entwickler der Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie, Nobelpreisträger in Physik

 

  • Ein Mensch ist Teil des Ganzen, das wir "Universum" nennen, begrenzt in Raum und Zeit. Er erlebt sich selbst, sein Denken und Fühlen als abgetrennt gegenüber dem Rest, eine Art von optischer Täuschung seines Bewusstseins. Diese Wahnvorstellung ist ein Gefängnis, das uns auf unsere persönlichen Bedürfnisse und die Zuneigungen zu einigen uns nahe stehenden Personen beschränkt. Es muss unsere Aufgabe sein, uns aus diesem Gefängnis zu befreien, indem wir den Kreis des Mitgefühls für andere ausweiten, so dass es alle lebenden Geschöpfe und die gesamte Natur in ihrer Schönheit umfasst. Niemand kann diese Aufgabe vollends erfüllen, doch gerade die Anstrengungen, dieses Ziel zu erreichen, sind ein Teil der Befreiung und ein Fundament für das innere Vertrauen. Albert Einstein [BW 499] (1879-1955) deutschstämmiger US-amerikanischer theoretischer Physiker, Entwickler der Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie, Nobelpreisträger in Physik, 1921

 

  • Mitgefühl kein Gefühlszustand ist, den wir "erlangen" müssen oder eine moralische Entscheidung, die wir treffen müssen. Mitgefühl steigt auf, wenn man die Dinge sieht, wie sie wirklich sind. Es übersteigt die moralischen Ansichten von gut und böse, richtig und falsch, heilig und unheilig, dein Gott und mein Gott. Es ist schlicht die natürliche Bewegung der Liebe, die du und alle Dinge sind. Chameli Gad Ardagh (*1971) norwegische Schauspielerin, Psychotherapeutin, Frauentrainerin, spirituelle Autorin, Komm dir näher....und l(i)ebe deine tiefste Sehnsucht, J.Kamphausen Verlag, 18. Februar 2008

Quotes by various other sources

Personal avowals

  • Whenever I see an erring man, I say to myself I have also erred; when I see a lustful man I say to myself, so was I once; and in this way I feel kinship with everyone in the world and feel that I cannot be happy without the humblest of us being happy. Mohandas Karamchand Mahatma Gandhi [LoC 760] (1869-1948) Indian Hindu sage, spiritual activist leader, humanitarian, lawyer, nonviolent freedom fighter

 

  • I have a certain amount of affection and compassion towards others. The seed of that did not come from Buddhism, it did not come from religion, it came from my mother. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso [LoC 570] (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Peace Nobel Prize laureate, 1989, writings

 

  • My own mother, for instance, was very kind. So today, the first seed of my compassion came from my mother, not from Buddhism. After studying Buddhism, it merely increased. If I didn’t have that kind of a kind mother or if my parents had abused me, then today maybe it would be difficult for me to practice compassion. Therefore, the seed of compassion is a biological factor. We need it for survival. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso [LoC 570] (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Peace Nobel Prize laureate, 1989, Religious Harmony, Compassion,and Islam, transcribed and lightly edited by Alexander Berzin, Milan, Italy, 9.

Recommendation

  • If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso [LoC 570] (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Peace Nobel Prize laureate, 1989

 

Appeals

  • We are called to play the good Samaritan on life's roadside, but that will be only an initial act. One day we must come to see that the whole Jericho road must be changed so that men and women not be constantly beaten and robbed as they make their journey on life's highway. True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) US American Baptist minister, activist, leader of the African American civil rights movement, speech "We as a Nation Must Undergo a Radical Revolution of Values", 4. April 1967, YouTube clip 1967: "Radical Revolution of Values", 3:51 minutes duration, posted 20. January 2014

 

  • The Buddha looked at the world […] with compassion and saw the world in pain and spent the next 40 years of his life trying to help people to live with their pain. This is our message now. This is what every one of us can do: to increase awareness of the pain of the world, to let it disturb us. It's not easy [...] We should all be sweating with the effort of how to bring the message of compassion – that alone can save our world – to public awareness. Audio presentation by Karen Armstrong (*1944) British former Roman Catholic nun, scholar of comparative religion, "freelance theist", founder of the Charter of Compassion, commentator, author, Compassion: the centuries-old solution to violence, sponsored by Global Conference on World's Religions After September 11, Montreal, Canada, September 2016, recorded and presented by CBC Radio Tapestry, minute 19:05, 21:01 minutes duration, posted 23. October 2016

 

Conclusion

  • Compassion is the antitoxin of the soul: where there is compassion even the most poisonous impulses remain relatively harmless. One would rather see the world run by men who set their hearts on toys but are accessible to pity, than by men animated by lofty ideals whose dedication makes them ruthless. In the chemistry of man's soul, almost all noble attributes – courage, honor, hope, faith, duty, loyalty, etc. – can be transmuted into ruthlessness. Compassion alone stands apart from the continuous traffic between good and evil proceeding within us. Eric Hoffer [LoC 505] (1902-1983) US American social writer, philosopher, The Passionate State Of Mind, and Other Aphorisms, section 139, Harper, 1955

 

Warning – Future outlook

 

  • A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. Albert Einstein [LoC 499] (1879-1955) German-born US American theoretical physicist, developer of the theory of general relativity, Nobel Prize laureate in physics, 1921, Letter to a distraught father who had lost his young son asking for some comforting words, 12. February 1950, presented by the US American daily newspaper The New York Times, 29. March 1972

Ass kicking compassion

  • Real compassion kicks butt and takes names. If you are not ready for this fire, then find a New Age, sweetness-and-light, perpetually smiling teacher and learn to relabel your ego with spiritual sounding terms. But, stay away from those who practice real compassion because they will fry your ass, my friend. Ken Wilber [LoC 490] (*1949) US American transpersonal philosopher, consciousness researcher, thought leader of the 3rd millennium, author, One Taste, Shambhala, Boston, 1999

Compassion for strangers drives evolution.

  • In however complex a manner compassion [sympathy] may have originated as it is one of high importance to all those animals which aid and defend one another it will have been increased through natural selection for those communities which included the greatest number of the most compassionate [sympathetic] members would flourish best and rear the greatest number of offspring. Charles Darwin [LoC 450/460] (1809-1882) English naturalist, author of the biological theory of evolution, The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex, S. 130, 1871

 

  • All languages that derive from Latin form the word compassion by combining the prefix meaning with (com-) and the root meaning suffering (Late Latin, passio). In other languages, Czech, Polish, German, and Swedish, for instance – this word is translated by a noun formed of an equivalent prefix combined with the word that means feeling (Czech, sou-cit; Polish, wspol-czucie; German, Mit-gefühl; Swedish, med-kansia). In languages that derive from Latin, compassion means: we cannot look on coolly as others suffer; or, we sympathize with those who suffer. Another word with approximately the same meaning, pity (French, pitie; Italian, pieta; etc.), connotes a certain condescension towards the sufferer. To take pity on a woman means that we are better off than she, that we stoop to her level, lower ourselves.That is why the word compassion generally inspires suspicion; it designates what is considered an inferior, second-rate sentiment that has little to do with love. To love someone out of compassion means not really to love. In languages that form the word compassion not from the root suffering but from the root feeling, the word is used in approximately the same way, but to contend that it designates a bad or inferior sentiment is difficult. The secret strength of its etymology floods the word with another light and gives it a broader meaning: to have compassion (co-feeling) means not only to be able to live with the other’s misfortune but also to feel with him any emotion – joy, anxiety, happiness, pain. This kind of compassion […] therefore signifies the maximal capacity of affective imagination, the art of emotional telepathy. In the hierarchy of sentiments, then, it is supreme. Milan Kundera (*1929) Czech-born naturalized French citizen writer, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Harper & Row, New York City, New York, 1984

 

  • Familial compassion is a given. Compassion is restrained to the members of the family and it is strongest to the infant. [...] For some people familial compassion embraces humanity. These people are unbelievably understudied because we need to learn from them.

  • Being a warrior isn't about taking lives, isn't about showing strength, isn't about showing how much knowledge you have, being a warrior is learning how to cry because when a man learns how to cry compassion starts to grow.
