You have known what anger feels like. You have known its origin in yourself.
You have known what grief or pain feels like. You have known its association in yourself.
You have known what Love feels like. You know everyone has their loved ones just like you.
Why is your anger different from others? Why is your grief or love different from others?
Soldier fights for a country or a political belief; which might not be his. How does it make a difference if he belongs to a different country? He will have same feelings, same relationship. You don’t have to believe in their faith but understand that the way you feel for your beliefs, similarly he feels for his.
If you feel anything within yourself; it’s the same what others feel like. If you can understand yourself, understand others as they are no different from you. Empathy is the ability to put yourself in someone else’s place – to feel their feelings, to be in their situation, to see through their eyes.
Empathy is the key to forgiveness.
Empathise yourself; Empathise everyone else.
Empathise with past; Empathise with present; Empathise with future.
Empathy leads to healing.
