Compassion is a key motivator of altruistic behavior, but little is known about individuals’ capacity to cultivate compassion through training.
Now, through a recent scientific study, we've learned that it's possible to become a more compassionate person by training your brain.
Researchers from the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconson-Madison's Waisman Center found that engaging in compassion meditation -- where you practice feeling compassion for different groups of people, including yourself -- seemed to increase a sense of altruism.
"It's kind of like weight training," study researcher Helen Weng, a graduate student in clinical psychology at the university, said in a statement. "Using this systematic approach, we found that people can actually build up their compassion 'muscle' and respond to others' suffering with care and a desire to help."
Helen Weng is our guest this week on the Voice of Leadership, sharing more about this study and our ability to become more compassionate human beings.

We are currently in a patriarchal cycle and we cannot ignore the woman just because of her gender. She have been in intiation rites since the dawn of the human family,Hence Isis said: “I have revealed to mankind mystic initiations. I have taught reverence for the Gods; I have established the temples.” The fullness of humanity, that is, the complementary balance of feminine and masculine energies, is necessary for harmony to prosper and to charge our evolution because we have to get better!
Join This Real Talk Episode of "Compassion & Love" and "The Uppity". Is there enough Compassion in the World Today? We believe that Love's Is In Need Of Love Today; words of Stevie Wonder. One thing that stings many is to have to deal with someone whom thinks they are above another because of materialistic possesions or better circumstances. The Good, The Bad, The Uppity... You Don't Want To Miss This Episode!
What does God think about compassion for the poor? God highlighted this subject to me today. He is for the distressed and downtrodden. He wants us to know about this, because He wants all people to be blessed by His ways. We will bless others but also be blessed ourselves. God's ways are so good!
We'll welcome Holly again as co-host for this episode. Thank you Holly -- some of the scriptures we'll look at come from her study. When I saw them, I was surprised that God had more to say than I had really seen clearly. It is sure different when you look at all the scriptures together. What a good picture of God's heart and what our hearts should be -- like His -- toward the poor.
We hope you can be with us live, but if not, we pray it blesses you whenever you can listen in. As always, call in if you need prayer or have an encouraging word!
Compassion of God:
Psalm 78:38 But He, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity and destroyed them not. Yea, many a time turned He His anger away, and did not stir up all His wrath.
Forgiveness of God:
Luke 23:34 Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." And they parted His raiment and cast lots.
Love of God:
Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you and persecute you.
