There seems to be no other way, so we better take this seriously.
As a mindset
Many bits make something big? Or each person wants to be the chosen one who saves the planet?
I intend with the title a mindset, a conviction, a promise ― clearly unreachable, yet one can strive to attain it as if it’s really for real. In that sense, in that mindset, healing yourself is healing the planet.
Frustrationless desire as a regular exercise.
Not just going with the flow, but going with and feeling responsible for your flow that you try to orient as well as possible. [see: “Not Just Going With the Flow“] In this, in my view, Compassion is the best guide.
With capital, since Yourself is so much more than the conceptually conscious part of you. In-depth, in each of us, there is a universe-inside that can overlap – without losing oneself – with others, with the intimate environment, and with the whole planet.
This ‘overlap’ can be seen as an overlay of multiple patterns that can recognize and be recognized in similarities as well as individual differences. Both similarities and differences are interesting, inviting towards possible change-from-inside. You need to be yourself in order to feel close to something or someone else. Being close, you can feel new possibilities for growth.
This is what healing is about. Healing through this kind of communication is Compassionate.
Within the overlap, what is good for you is good for the planet, and vice versa. Thus, the Compassionate way is the search for overlap.
Healing towards Compassion
Getting rid of pain is one thing. Getting rid of pain from the inside out is a broader, better goal. This is not (only) an idealistic way of thinking. It is also more efficient ― not only towards the relief of suffering but also towards attaining human growth.
If done well, both lead to more Compassionate human beings.
Compassion towards healing
Healing others. One doesn’t need to be a psychotherapist or coach to contribute to this. A coach can contribute mainly but not only through his formal coaching.
Each act of Compassion heals another person or persons. We can all feel genuinely responsible.
Healing the planet
can be done through the healing of many humans. It eventually depends on us. We are responsible. We can all be grateful.
The reverse is also true. Innerly dissociated, we dissociate the planet. We can – temporarily – break nature. We can break the climate through many big and small decisions. Or: We become less dissociated and more Compassionate.
It’s a question of daring to learn, see and act.
