Hello to you. How are you? I hope you are well. We are getting our car back today….Yay! It’s the little things right?!
The moon is full and was just so lovely last night. I got four new mosquito bites to get these LOL!
This morning when I was looking at the headlines on MSN I started thinking about those nightmare cubes from the Cabin in the Woods movie. If I click on any of the boxes in front of me, some nightmare is contained in there to come at me!
The Cabin in the Woods – Cubes
Not all the news is negative and I’m usually able to find positive things to find out about but it seems harder to do. The Daily Good website (http://www.dailygood.org/) and others like it help remind me there is a lot of good, a lot of “heart” yet going on in this world.
http://www.dailygood.org/story/2016/i-feel-you-the-surprising-power-of-extreme-empathy-knowledge-wharton/ – if you are interested about the subject of empathy, you will find this informative.
Knowledge@Wharton: I wonder if we are born with a certain level of empathy.
“I don’t think that there’s a finite amount [of empathy] that you’re given at birth. But I do think that there are people that are born with a disability.”–Cris Beam
Beam: There’s some research that suggests that, when we look at sociopaths and psychopaths who are supposedly born without it. It’s hard to make that overarching judgment that some people are born with it and some people are born without it. I do think that it can grow. If it’s modeled for you, you can learn empathy. You can absorb it. You can become a more empathetic person if you are treated empathically. So, I don’t think that there’s a finite amount [of empathy] that you’re given at birth. But I do think that there are people that are born with a disability [of not having it].
I send you love, a hug and mega positive vibes through the wires! If you are suffering in in some sort of “nightmare cube” of an existence right now, I hope there will be a loving, healing, positive way out for you.
