empathy - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Empathy is the gold of our lives, the treasure, "x" marks the spot.
Our brains are build day by day with loving interactions and empathic thoughts for others, it is what makes humans humane.
We are born for love, empathy is a foundational element of a functional society.
The only thing that stands between true civilisation and genocide is our capacities for empathy and creative perspective taking.
Only when we have developed both empathy and the ability to think with logic are we neurologically sober.
Here we must hear with warm hearts and be curious regarding how to cure. It is time to ask what sight is. It is the moment to think of what eyes are, and how often we see with a sigh, a lazy soft rejecting regret rather than the love that sees a sea of emotions within. It is time to hear fear, to feel the sadness below anger, to know that coping needs co-regulation. It is time to see that acting out is an honest request for help from one in hell. It is time to see that love is boundless, eternal, that when we give we receive - to free ourselves from basic mathematical type-thinking. Love is a seed that grows, always giving more, as natural seeds do. It's time for those deeds to rain from hearing hearts, for they will be the green spring we all seek.
The key to the gate of heaven is empathy, one must love.
Empathy is a highlighter of intelligence, for it requires creative perspective taking and creativity is intelligence.
The linguistics of the radical wire up logic and self control to empathy to root society in core values and promote cooperation. The linguistics of all varieties of extremism wire up emotional indifference to fear (and sometimes logic without empathy). It is biologically impossible to make sound choices without using both logic and empathy in simultaneously, indeed, it becomes a form of slow-mo developmental brain damage that destroys both the connection of the individual to the best version of themselves and society itself. If a mechanic was miswiring a car you'd stop them, extremists (such as alt right) miswire the brain. It's a kind of short circuit that cuts out the most important and most highly evolved human ability - that of love. God gave it. Let's keep it.
Generation cell phone was followed by generation sociopath - we went from a sizeable minority to a majority - and that was the end of the world as we knew it. In the midst of all the other swirling disasters, from disease to wildfires and climate change, a generation without the attention span to develop introspection and thus the kind of self awareness that develops empathy, that was how humanity would devolve... unless we figured out how to reverse the neurological damage and save both our children and those yet unborn... it was the big disaster coming over the hilltop.
