As you begin to rise above your lower instincts and stop living for the sake of selfish desires, you start feeling the pains and agonies of others. An inner process of expansion has begun. Your ego is melting.
When selfishness melts, you flow with compassion because true compassion is the natural state of your being. Without being blinded by your small self, the ego, you are able to see beyond apparent evil manifestations. You become more sensitive to light. You begin to see light even in the midst of darkness, because darkness is only a lower frequency of light.
Your heart melts for others. It flows with the most powerful energy in the universe, the energy of Love. Love is the energy that unites; it has the power to unite all the divisive forces, to overcome all evil forces. Its power flows from your feeling heart, unconditioned, unprejudiced.
Compassion, too, is unconditioned, unprejudiced. Compassion can cleanse any stain. It can kindle light even in the darkest heart. It can breathe life into the dead.
