How kindness-compassion-empathy meditation helps your heart health

How kindness-compassion-empathy meditation helps your heart health | Living a Catholic Lifestyle | Scoop.it

When you do a love and kindness meditation, also known as an LKM, it effects the tone and rhythm of your vagus nerve and your heart beat rate. How come hugs are being compared to drugs? Can meditating on compassion and empathy frequently help with heart health? The higher the vagal tone, the better the vagus nerve performs as a regulatory pathway, scientists have explained in a new study of compassion meditation and its effects on the human body.

 

Basic empathy is a biological given. “If you talk with a sad person, you are going to adopt a sad posture, and if you talk to a happy person, by the end you will probably be laughing,” says Emory primatologist Frans de Waal, according to an October 21, 2010 news release, "Are hugs the new drugs?"

I agree that being kind to others will likely lead to a longer life. On a related note, the article discusses the importance of empathy which made me think about a video that I recently watched that explains the difference between empathy and sympathy.

allAfrica.com: Liberia: Facts of Life

allAfrica.com: Liberia: Facts of Life | Living a Catholic Lifestyle | Scoop.it

A book containing Liberian proverbs and parables, along with their related meanings, is expected to be published next month (October) in the country. The 17-page book, written by Robert Sunnay, provides some guidance to success. It contains 100 proverbs and parables.

Three of the parables, written as fables, are as follows: And they are Cobra: King of the Frogs (Cobra's attitude compels frogs to desire another king), Little Monkey and Leopard (Hunger and greed make monkey lead leopard to his destruction), and The Struggle for Decent Living (Your mouth is your bedroom).

In an interview with Robert Sunnay, the author said the collection of Liberian proverbs make use of our honored tradition, as well as our everyday sayings. For instance, he said: "Don't blame your parents when you stump your toes." This means that every man is responsible for what he makes of his own life.

"Ancestry may contribute, but an individual's decision determines his fortune or misfortune. Or, don't blame the father; blame his son. While some believe in luck, problems attend us all; none is exempt," Sunnay said. He said there are people who were born lucky, while others are faced with a myriad of problems, sometimes lasting throughout their life time.

This article and your response reminded me of a book I recently read called "The Rosie Project." It's a book about a man named Don who has Autism but he doesn't know it. Because of his condition he finds it difficult to have relationships. Here's a clip of the author talking about the book: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXGY4TlvZD0

ShelterBox

ShelterBox | Living a Catholic Lifestyle | Scoop.it

 

"I wrote a few weeks ago here of the Golden Rule, treat others as you wish to be treated. These words of Arthur Dunn ask an important question and one that is partly answered in the work of ShelterBox below. If only we all (including our governments) could live by this philosophy, the world would indeed be a kinder place.

 

Why should the Golden Rule be so difficult in business and foreign relations? The happily married treat each other as they wish to be treated. They treat their children better than they wish to be treated themselves. Unless we do unto a friend as we do unto ourselves, we lose a friend. In an emergency we rush to the aid of our neighbour. Is it so great a step to realise that all people everywhere are neighbours?"

This article is about the golden rule. You can learn that even if smeone treats you badly you still have to treat them nicely because you do for others what you would want them to do for you.

You should treat someone nicely if they treat you badly because then good will come to you if you hand out good.
