S.T.A.R. Wisdom: Compassion Taught By The Essenes

Scientist, visionary and author, Gregg Braden, shares that there are many definitions for compassion and that his chosen description comes from the Essenes¹ Gospels of Peace: the quality of thought without attachment to outcome, emotion with no charge (judgment) and feeling without distortion – all processed in the heart.² This information has given me an opportunity to reflect on whether the Essenes’s idea of compassion has application to my own life and if I might experience compassion for me.

Three seraphim came to me this morning to walk me through an internal experience teaching me that the answer is, “Yes.” The story began before I put my feet on the carpet at about 5:30 a.m. mountain time. I had commenced a breathing exercise that I am attempting to master as a student of Somato Respiratory Integration (SRI). SRI as explained by Donny Epstein, founder of Network Spinal Analysis and SRI, “educates you to your body’s rhythms and inner wisdom through focused attention, gentle breath, movement and touch.”

One of the three positions for SRI is to have both hands, one on top of the other, over one’s belly. A deep breath is taken through the nose and exhaled through the mouth. Focus is placed on the breath/body experience. How is the breath moving? How is the belly expanding and contracting? What am I noticing about my body? My answers were that my breath was not smooth, and I had a hard time staying focused on my body.

This morning as I was trying to perfect this experience, I saw myself in lucid dream state as a young women wearing a long dress with a bustle walking near a train. It felt as if this was a past-life experience occurring in the western part of the United States during the country’s expansion into new territories.

Then I saw this women, me, lying on the train track as the train ran over me – right across my belly. There were lots of other images accompanying this vision but none as clear as my death.

My next image was of me as a man during a similar time period. I was standing in the center of a dirt street with buildings in back and in front of me, like a scene in a western movie. It felt as if I was a sheriff. I had a gun drawn pointed straight out in front of me. Then I saw myself bending over from a gun shot that had struck me in the belly, which caused my death.

My third and final vision was of me in my mother’s womb with the umbilical cord wrapped around my neck. It seemed as if I knew that this was to cause my death. I next saw me, the baby, being held by the midwife, who then placed my lifeless body next to my mother. What this image initiated was empathy with those whose lives I had touched in each lifetime. I could feel my mother’s pain as she held me, and I then began to reflect on the emotions of those who knew and loved the young women and the sheriff.

As I lay in my bed experiencing and feeling these three episodes of different expressions of me, I asked myself how today I might have compassion as taught by the Essenes for me and those connected to me. How could I think about these past lives with no attachment to outcome?

How could I express emotion without the charge of judgement and finally how would I bring the two together in my heart and feel about what I had revisited with no distortion?

My answer was that the constriction in my belly was a product of third dimensional thoughts, emotions and feelings. I was holding old energy of empathy, which comes from right/wrong judgment. It was time to let that go for it no longer serves me. The foundation for the third dimension has slipped away in the new 26,000-year cycle and has been replaced by the expanded more fluid awareness of new energy dimensions. I am to hold these memories with no attachment, no judgement and no distortion. They simply “were.”

After receiving this aha, I saw in my lucid dream state the three seraphim standing side by side, each having participated uniquely in my three visions. They had been my morning teachers educating me by means of my body’s rhythms and inner wisdom through focused attention, gentle breath, movement and touch. As I continued the deep breathing, it felt as if my belly contained a balloon that was gently expanding and fully contracting. Crystalline clear compassion codes of logic, emotion and feeling had been sent through my body. I had experienced the release of stored old energy, which no longer serves me making room for new energy that will assist me in dreaming who I choose to express as, in the new earth. I hold gratitude for the teachings of the Essenes through their Gospels of Peace and to all the other masters, myself included, who assisted me in accepting this S.T.A.R. Wisdom.

  1. Thank you for this posting. I just finished watching your video on Compassion
    from the ancient teachings. I also heard you speak in 2008 in Albuquerque at
    the Science and Consciousness Conference.

    Compassion and the tools you presented are the antithesis to not only activating our DNA potential, but is the bridge to the new paradigm, the Unity
    of the Oneness of life applied in action, the grace of the Holy spirit in a living

    It has come to me tonight, to offer a course in Compassion. Any support or
    suggestions for me to do this, is most appreciated. I am a holistic registered
    nurse who has always been driven by the beauty, the teachings of compassion. Thank you for the gifts you give in this teaching.
    In the One, In the now of blessings,
