In this podcast Swami Tommy explains how to connect with our natural state of empathy to develop our potential to be compassionate and open with ourselves and others. Here are the steps involved in this empathy meditation method:
1) connect with a personal difficulty you feel within your heart, mind, and/or body;
2) realize that other people, along with us, are struggling with a similar kind of difficulty;
3) identify what healing medicine would ease the difficulty; for example, with anxiety I think that soft surrender would bring peace;
4) lastly, practice this breathing-based sequence (using anxiety as an example): I inhale and connect with all beings who are experiencing anxiety (in touch with your empathy); then I exhale a soft surrender to all (in touch with your compassion to deliver healing medicine to all).
