An empathetic person is able to connect with other beings on an emotional level. However, some people maintain empath traits to such extreme that they feel or know another’s emotions just by being in their presence. Some believe that strong empaths are able to read other’s emotions because they have strong telepathic abilities. Even if it’s unbeknownst to them, and especially if they already have a strong personal bond.
At whatever level, empathy, similar to love, creates true bonds among us humans. Empathy also bonds us and other living beings such as animals. By cultivating your empathy towards other beings, you are likely to improve the quality of your life and the lives of the people around you. When you try to understand another person’s perspective, and then adapt your actions to their feelings, you will create more fulfilling and enduring relationships.
There is no one method for erasing the biases that our childhood experiences and mainstream society have programmed into our minds. Cultivating empathy often means an individual journey of self-reflection. We must tear down misconceptions, and increasing social tolerance. In the near future, virtual bodyswapping could be one of the methods that we employ to help us along this journey to expand our empath traits, and expanding the collective journey towards a more peaceful humanity.
