Our Divine Download for October 10, 2020 is Kuan Yin/Compassion from the Goddess Oracle Cards. She brings us the message "Release judgments about yourself and others, and focus on the love and light that is within everyone." Compassion for self and others seems to have been a big not-so-subtle undercurrent in several recent DD's. Compassion towards others is often much easier than compassion towards self, or at least it used to be. We hold ourselves up to such a harsh and high standard, and often times we're crucifying ourselves mentally and emotionally for our perceived failures and inadequacies each and every day. How's that feel? Where's that getting you? When we are not experiencing and expressing true compassion for self it becomes impossible to have and express compassion for others. We cannot give what we do not have. We cannot pour from an empty cup. Facts. Learn to speak to yourself and treat yourself in the same way that you would a small child or a treasured pet. If you would not speak to a child or your beloved pet in the same way that you speak to yourself, it's a sure sign that you should not speak to or with yourself in this manner. If you would be embarrassed with others hearing you say out loud any part or piece of inner dialogue you have with yourself, it's time to make a change. All it does when you are so harsh and so unkind with yourself is to rob the world of your natural state of compassion and disallow you the ability to feel true authentic compassion for others. You're doing the best that you can with where you're at and what you've got right now. And chances are very strong that you're doing a hell of a lot better than you think you are. Maybe give yourself some credit where it's due? You're amazing. You truly are. You're strong. You're brave. You're a warrior of the light. And you're doing the things. It doesn't matter what those things are, because you're doing them. And you're doing them well. You weren't put on this planet at this time to do everything perfect the first time around. We learn through making mistakes and learning is a beautiful thing. Allow yourself to enjoy the progress of your own education in this thing called life. It truly is a beautiful thing. As are you.
