Empathy: defined?

Recent developments of a family nature have exposed me to a foreign experience, until now: the depth of hostility expressed and anxiety imposed upon an ailing, dying Father by his only and seemingly heartless Son.

What has materialized from this experience is clarity, from my perspective, of the true meaning of Empathy.

Empathy: what the non-suffering need feel for the suffering.

In the broader scope of human experience: it is the sufferance of the suffering for the non-suffering to suffer to realize the true meaning of Empathy.

Youthful Inspiration

The occasional encounter with young persons who infuse a realistic sense of hope toward the fulfillment of human potential is an inspiring experience for those of an older generation:

The young, youth, who are given to inherently inspire,
Infusing an enthusiastic drive, ambition-fire;
Driven by lifestyle, most only imagine to aspire,
Yielding more than just wishes, to take one higher.

Beauty of body and intellect cosmically given ideals
Humbly exercised, knowing what matters in life is to be real;
With compassion of empathy to what others may feel,
Ignoring fain accolade, this given essence, to humbly conceal.

Service to others, a cause celebre,
Pursuing what others most disregard or serve to dread;
Taking the challenge to lead rather than to be led,
In pursuit of true purpose to what lies for humanity, ahead.
