Compassion is a path to discovering your inner most intelligence. When you have compassion for a situation or person you are relinquishing control of what you think should be happening and creating building more energy within your system that gives you the ability to receive higher vibrational frequencies and messages. You have to be able to match the frequencies that are coming in to connect to them. When we cast judgment or try to control our outside world we are throwing our energy into matter. Material is a vibration of what already has happened. If you want to change the world work through compassion.
Compassion is not an escape from reality but a transmuting matter energy with sending love and nourishment. Therefore compassion is the root to change and the root to higher consciousness.
Judgement and control keeps our energy on this plane
While compassion helps us encompass all plains at once simultaneously.
