Are we hardwired for empathy?

The Spiritual Empathy Residing Within Old Souls

"Empathy is a better word than identification to describe what Pagan mystics experienced." - John Lamb Lash

Empathy occurs when we suspend the single-minded focus of attention on our needs and desires of the moment adopting instead a dual-minded focus of attention that includes the consciousness of another individual.

When attention lapses back into a single-minded focus empathy turns off.

Active empathy identifies what someone else is feeling and responds to those emotions with an appropriate emotional response.

When we engage in empathic response we validate the other person.

"The love of life that Edwin Wilson has named biophilia, and our natural empathy toward other human beings, is ultimately irrepressible because we are life and life is us." - Charles Eisenstein

" The brain has these amazing circuits, mirror neuron circuits, which are actively firing and activating motor and visual circuits simply as simulations of other people's activities.

That suggests the brain itself is manufacturing empathy circuits that allow us to participate in rich and complicated ways in the sensibilities, actions and motivations of other people." - Richard Powers


"Empathy (living vicariously) is central to our humanity.

We must balance the forces of emotion and rationality.

With empathy, our system of rational logical thought can extend our moral concern to people further from our private lives." - JD Trout




balance is key


Children normally begin to display the fundamental behaviors of empathy by having an emotional response that corresponds with another persons emotional state of mind - comforting others or showing concern for others as early as 24 months of age.

"Everyone is born an empath. We all have the physical equipment necessary to pick up on what other people are feeling. But, for most of us, this ability will slowly fade away from lack of use." - Elise Lebeau

Children between the ages of seven and 12 are naturally inclined to feel empathy for others in pain but these natural inclinations can be subsumed.


"At about age fifteen human beings are meant to develop empathetic, holistic, transpersonal modes of cognition, abilities that violate the dogma of the discrete and separate self.

Primitive societies acknowledged these abilities and fostered their development, providing both models and methods for transcendence of the limited, rational, egoic self of the pre-teen.

Not by accident, many of these ceremonies incorporate ritual reenactments of the birth process." - Charles Eisenstein

Empathy honors moral sense to advance moral principle.

Empathy responds to the effects of a violated moral principle.

Empathy is alert to the humiliation and indignity of being treated differently for reasons that are morally irrelevant.

"lf you bring forth what is within you, what you have will save you. If you do not have that within you, what you do not have within you will kill you."

Jesus the Tekton, Gospel of Thomas


Empathy for living beings is a biological imperative.

"I take gnostic statements emotionally; it's an image of the truth, illumination and divine presence to be found in every human being.

It teaches that within every human life is a bit of the divine source, and everything comes from that source.

All life is to be respected as coming from God." - Elaine Pagels

Animal flesh can be consumed for food; animal skins can be used for clothing; the Torah itself must be written on parchment animal hides.

We are permitted to use animals only when there is a genuine, legitimate need, in the manner that causes the animal the least suffering.

Hunting for sport is prohibited, trapping for legitimate needs is permissible only when it is done in the least painful way possible." - Mechon Mamre

It is not glamorous or exciting, painful more often than not." - Isabella Snow

unique library index

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.





This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex of America and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
