I was shown a series of visions about the compassion of the lamb. They were very moving.
It’s not so hard to be kind to the people you know and love, but what about having compassion for people that are thoroughly evil and/or dangerous?
The lamb of God forgives everyone, no one is left out of its compassion, even though it knows the people it is being compassionate to are going to harm it in the end. It’s compassion is very gold in color, and very kind, it’s full of love. I saw how vast it is, more than we can understand.
Even if you have tamed your ego somewhat, you still have to try and comprehend the lamb through the remnants of the ego-mind. The selflessness of the lamb is far beyond us.
In my books I talk about a concept I call “tea with Hitler.”
I ask, could you go and have tea with Hitler and not judge him, or mention his crimes, could you forgive him and treat him as a normal person?
The tea with Hitler experiment is way less than the compassion of the lamb, but it was how I first introduced the concept of extremes of non-judgment and forgiveness.
Humans are scared, and somewhat hopeless and dysfunctional, we have to try and love them and bring them home no matter what. It’s a big test. Stuart Wilde
