“Understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times.”
This is one of the five * Yogic Sutras for the Aquarian (Information) Age.
In the Age of Aquarius, the age of enlightenment, we are being called to move out of the Piscean motto, what’s in it for me ? to the Aquarian motto, how can my actions benefit the whole ?
Compassion is learning and acting from the heart. If we choose to go into judgment or look away from our suffering fellow human beings we are misunderstanding the times. It is only the ego and mind that keep us separate from one another and in denial of the truth.
The Aquarian Age is recognizing that we are ONE human tribe on planet earth, all of us brothers and sisters connected by ONE spirit. We are here on this planet to serve, uplift and help one another.
REFLECTION: Keep your heart open today as you approach people and challenges. Resist the urge to go into the mind and ego to become separate. Remember to look into the eyes of others to see the same light that lives in us all.

*A sutra is a ‘knot’. It is a complex spiritual concept reduced to one sentence and later expanded upon by a spiritual teacher. Sutras allowed sacred teachings to be protected from harm (by appearing harmless to conquerors) and were brief enough to be remembered by students in ancient times.
