Compassion Project

Hope for the World

Dear Harry,

As part of the Earth Compassion Team Project in Israel/Palestine, 255 packages, 50 each, of Compassion Cards in Hebrew and Arabic were sent to mayors, heads of local and regional municipalities in Israel. 255 men and women from different religions and origins received the gift of the pack of 50 cards.

The packages were prepared by Avatar Masters, including our youngest Masters, who were very happy to assist! The delivery man that brought the boxes loved the card and wished us success, the lovely clerk at the post office, loved the card also and wished us success, as did anyone else who heard about the project.

Two of the mayors of big cities already wrote back to thank the project team and appreciate the gift. One of them wrote he is looking into using the cards in the education system in the municipality!

Good people in local communities want to live together in peace, and the Compassion Exercise, this project and Earths Compassion Team gave them a great push forward and a wonderful tool to spread compassion and tolerance! Yes, there is hope for the world!

Thank you so much Harry for sharing this gift with us, and the courage to go for it. I am so happy and forever grateful to have taken part in this project.
Love,

His Heart Opened Up

Dear Harry,


Last night I met a person I had given the Compassion Card to 18 months ago. It was so touching for me to learn he had been using the Compassion Exercise frequently on his Father who is an alcoholic. He said not only had the relationship improved as his heart opened up, but also because of the Compassion practice, he was able to see the good work and efforts of his Father. He said " The man showed up at work everyday to provide for his family even when he was feeling sick."


He said he then passed the Compassion Card to his Mother and he could feel her heart open up to his Dad too.


It is so awesome for me to understand the feeling that an Avatar Master's success is not only to be measured by how many new Avatars produced. Thank you for the Compassion Exercise Harry! Thank you for sharing these tools. Thank you for being so real. Love,

Important to Evolvement

Dear Harry,

We are really more than ever in gratitude and awe of your work and the mission, and of the field of grace we live in as your Qualified Masters.

Here is a sampling of some of the things people at the Science of Compassion Conference have said to us:

 A person from Stanford University, formerly from a well known School for Personal Growth, "Oh, you are with the Avatar group. Everybody is saying what good work the Avatar's are doing."

Another from the University of Texas said "Oh my god, you are with Avatar. I have your Compassion Exercise poster hanging in my office. I love your work."

A Doctor attending the conferance, a translator for the Dali Lama, said " The scientists have to be really careful, because they have to be 'legitimate'. They could loose their funding. It is a really big step for them to get behind Compassion and it is also very exciting for them to start to have ways to prove the validation of it. That perspective in the world is important to the evolvement. People rely on science."

Also a local engineer attending the conference said "I am just a retired engineer, but I have always been curious about my world. I can feel that there is some wholeness that is trying to emerge and I think it is related to this work."

Everyone here is very grateful for the Compassion Project and for the cards you sent.

Sending you so much love,

Many seeds of Compassion!

Dear Harry,

It has been an amazing adventure here in at the Avatar Course in Columbus, Ohio!

With a team of 15, we passed out 1400 Compassion Cards to Doctors, Lawyers, Social Workers, Advocates, the Attorney General of Ohio, CPAs, the Chief Magistrate Judge, hotel workers, artists, and students. We also connected with the Ohio State Representative Tim Ryan's office in Washington DC. He recently wrote a book called "Mindful Nation" about using meditation to create a better nation. We sent him a letter, compassion cards and "What is Avatar?" brochures.

We also connected with two judges who are interested in possibly exploring using Avatar in their judicial training.

People were very moved by your Compassion Project and were very thankful and touched for the Compassion Card. Several had tears of gratitude when they did the exercise.

It feels like many seeds have been planted and are sprouting on their way to Wizards. Love,

Bill Lee and The Columbus Team- USA

The compassion ripple effect

Dear Harry,

I would like to share how people open up with the Compassion Project. I teach the Community Services Work diploma at  T.A.F. E., the largest vocational education and training provider in Australia and one of the best in the world. I give out Compassion Cards to all my students in each of my classes. We go through the Compassion Exercise together and discuss using compassion in community work.

I am both amazed and humbled how some of the students connect with the exercise. I have gotten feedback from some who are using it in their everyday lives and have even passed it on to family members who have used it also. The ripple effect has surprised and elated me. I feel honored to be in a position to pass this tool on to people. I am known with my colleagues as the compassion person and they have also connected with the exercise.

Thank you for bringing such clarity into the collective consciousness! Much Love,

Compassion Card and deep appreciation

Dear Harry,

Thank you again for the gifts of the Pro Course. I have been integrating these great tools as I Intern at this International Avatar Course. Especially as I go out to connect with people.

Thanks so much for the Compassion Cards also! I feel the connection with so many and varied people by using it. At a restaurant I met a woman dealing with some health issues and was so grateful for the card and exercise. Using the Compassion Card another Master and I recently connected with a woman at a "Halloween dog costume day" contest for the cutest dog. The woman we met was aged 69 and came with her dog she had rescued after someone had just left it behind at her apartment building. After experiencing the Compassion Exercise she shared her story and we both listened with deep appreciation and gratitude. Among many other things her daughter had died three weeks earlier. The bottom line is she is starting ReSurfacing today on the course! Thank you so much for the privelege of sharing these tools with others. Love,

Synchronicity

Harry,

I gave a Compassion Card to a women during the Kempton Energy Fair this weekend. She hugged me (which was very nice) and said you don't know how on time this was. We went through the exercise together. I felt very compelled to give her the card even to the point of hunting her down in the crowd.

I thought of these words just now. Synchronistic events reveal an underlying pattern, a conceptual framework that encompasses, but is larger than, any of the systems that display the synchronicity. The suggestion of a larger framework is essential.

Compassion in a bush community

Hi Harry,

I had a Compassion Project stand at the markets last Sunday and some people came and shared experiences I want to share with you, as the creator of the precious gift of the Compassion exercise and the gorgeous, wonderful, beautiful card it's printed on. I feel joy every time I hand it to someone.

All these people are Indigenous Australians, both from Darwin and from traditional bush communities.

One, a friend, came up and gave me a huge hug, so grateful as he shared that he had been in a depression for 2 weeks recently and then used the Compassion Exercise to shift himself out of it. He had then given the exercise to a friend who was in a conflict with someone. She did the exercise and later told my friend "we spoke normal after that". He was with a friend from Sydney, also Indigenous. I gave her a Compassion Card and she loved it.

Then 2 young women from a bush community (Maningrida) came to the table, and told me someone had already given them this card and the exercise had really helped them. It was a woman who was working in their community who came to the stand a few months ago and took some extra cards to give to people.

So.. here were these 2 young women, who are training to be teachers in their community, out in the bush, hundreds of miles from the nearest town, who have your Compassion exercise and are using it in their lives. They gave me their contact details and want to do an Introduction. And they took 5 cards each to give to others.

Because of your intention Harry, to help the guy next to you wake up, and then tell him to pass it on, and creating a way to do it, so many lives have been touched, rippling out to even the remotest regions of Australia.

Thank you Harry. Love,

Iguana Compassion

Dear Harry,

I had another chance to use the Compassion Exercise recently. In my garden there are many iguana's. They love papaya leaves. I had two trees close to a concrete wall and the iguana's could easily reach out for the leaves. They continued eating until the last of the leaves were gone. It hadn't rained in a while so I felt compassion for the iguana's.

When it started to rain I planted a new tree. I put a fence around it to keep the iguana's away. I even bought an expensive spray called "Iguana Rid". But probably the young papaya leaves were too good. The iguana's climbed the fence and didn't even notice the expensive spray.

I was very disappointed and found something to cover the top of the tree. The iguana found a way in and again ate all the leaves. I fixed the hole and hoped they would not find another way in. A few days later I saw an iguana going through a hole for the leaves. I felt my belief "Stay out of my territory or I will punish you" as absolutely true. My identity lowered on the scale and as the iguana walked away, I through a big brick at it. It hid under some grass and seemed to look at me begging for its life.

I felt very ashamed and went inside to work on the identity. The iguana walked away very slowly, but what I did to this creature stayed in my mind. I did the Compassion Exercise. I could feel lots of compassion and how this creature was just like me, trying to fulfill his/her needs in life.

Thank you!

I have prayed

Dear Harry,

Recently my wife has said I have no compassion and was like her first husband. This hurt, but I didn't know what to do. That night I had Googled how to be compassionate. The information was confusing. For the past two years, twice a day I have prayed that God will instill in me sympathy, empathy, compassion, understanding and tolerance.

At my next Friday night men's Al-Anon meeting I shared what I just wrote about. The following day I went to a Farmers Market and happened to sit next to several women from around the country. When I asked them they said they were attending a course called Avatar and I also heard the word compassion. I told them I had been in AA for 43 yrs and Al-Anon for 25 years but didn't think I could ever have compassion. One of them reached in her purse and she took out a Compassion Exercise Card. I almost dropped.

I went home and showed my wife the card. We went to Church the next day and in the pew in front of me was a woman who I noticed that really caught my attention. I felt a lot of judgment. I took out the Compassion Card and did the exercise from the back of her head. By the time we were all asked to greet one other, I was completely free to give her a hug and a warm greeting!

That experience, coupled with my Minister saying "Just do it!" when I asked about Avatar, convinced my wife and I to drive to where the course was, watch your video before the introduction and sign up to do the Avatar Course! Thank you for creating Avatar and may you continue to be blessed!

Strangers deeply connecting

Dear Harry,

It's the most incredible blessing to be part of the Compassion Project. Today I visited a Chinese garden in Sydney. A woman in a wheelchair was looking intently at an area over a ledge. I was curious and went to find out what was happening. Her three children had dressed up in traditional outfits. The husband's phone had gone flat, so pictures could not be taken to recall this happy day. I offered to take photos and email them. It was beautiful to be part of this family briefly.

The woman was in tears with gratitude, saying my kindness had  prevented a divorce. I gave her and her husband a compassion card each, telling them how often this exercise had helped me regarding my partner, and the purpose of the project.

It is because of you Harry and your mission, that such extraordinary moments of strangers deeply connecting, are possible. An incredible blessing, thank you.
