The Compassionate Mind | Observer

The Compassionate Mind | Observer | test | Scoop.it

Decades of clinical research has focused and shed light on the psychology of human suffering. That suffering, as unpleasant as it is, often also has a bright side to which research has paid less attention: compassion. Human suffering is often accompanied by beautiful acts of compassion by others wishing to help relieve it. What is compassion and how is it different from empathy or altruism? Is it learned? What are its psychological and physical benefits? Can it be cultivated?

The majority of research on meditation has pertained either to its physiological/clinical benefits or to its impact on attention. Research about its influence on emotion regulation and utility for cultivating pro-social states, like compassion, is now starting to catch up. This APS article is a good, non-technical review of the latter.

Thanks again Eileen. I have recently read more on positive health and well-being, specifically Flourish by Seligman. Our well-being is greatly impacted my many things in our live's, and action that provides greater meaning beyond self(compassion) influences other aspects of our Well-Being(positive emotion,relationships). This too may have a physiological effect on not just inflammation, but telomere length.

We are always trying to work out where the music or copywriting / story is heading, and enjoy the journey even if we're wrong. "There is pleasure even in being deceived."
