Refining Empathy

Get a free reading at PsychicAccess.comThe word pathos comes from the Greek word ‘to feel’. Etymologically the preceding word means ‘to feel together.’ This could be a misinterpretation, as all people have very unique versions and imprints of feeling.

Every emotional state is unique. Nothing can transcend the way someone perceives a memory of color, the way one first experiences a moment, and the feeling associated to it, and the feeling it imprints into us.

To feel together would be to assume that every state is intuitively identical to all of us, and this is entirely untrue. Unique perception accounts for most of the states of feeling we have, apart from basic feelings we have that may have to do with survival states. These feelings may include grief (in order to process loss), anger (in order to transcend negative situations), or joy, to extend the best probabilities for survival.

The biggest deficit that we have in our society and in the world right now is an empathy deficit. We are in great need of people being able to stand in somebody else’s shoes and see the world through their eyes ~ Barack Obama

The finer emotional states come from perception. Perception is a unique state entirely and this slant is a very difficult place to understand for the sensitive individual. Perception can include humor, love and all forms of interpretation. For the person needing to understand why the other empath or sensitive individual may not perhaps entirely understand their state of mind, perception is the master of the shadows and emotions – though in their purest manner can be the better part of our spirits, but with time and experience, loss and heartbreak, suffering and sadness, rejection and desolation, the shadows that emerge may play into the way we interpret pathos or feeling.

We may feel we see someone as rejected, when they are actually replete. Or we may assume someone is joyful when they are devastated. We may feel with them because we may want to, and we may assume their feeling when we want to, and we may also want to when it may benefit us as humanity, and indeed it can, no matter what border, what barriers, what faces, and in which places. It need not be simply be ‘compassion’ pathos is ‘feeling’, which is not ‘good feeling’ it is just feeling as such.

In truth, feeling in itself need not take on the adjectives that we ascribe to things that we feel are fixed, they are in truth very personal, very much what we need to give them. We need to give them values not that are fixed, but they have to be mutable, and have the flexibility so that we can allow for the interplay of communication between not only others, but also within ourselves, within the deepest most private, undiscovered parts of our spiritual matter, our souls, and not only that, but to redefine what we feel we are, not based upon how we feel others feel we are perceived as, but also to rediscover the sweetest parts within ourselves, yet unsolved, unreached, preserved, fallow, and pure.

In these parts pathos resides, and empathy then can dearly impart itself in its truest form not only upon others, but truly upon ourselves, the person’s who we really serve, if we are really to serve humanity first, if that be our desire, or ourselves, if that be our wish.
