During this holiday season we tend to be even more empathetic and compassionate than usual, so I think taking a deeper look at empathy would be interesting as we go through the season.
Here is a very good video that provides a narration and engaging hand drawn visuals to explain mirror neurons and how humans are soft wired for sociability, the “want-to-belong”, and empathy, but also how we can further evolve to a more global empathy.
Give it a view, and maybe keep it in mind during your holiday season, and hopefully after this period. We are still evolving, we can become even better.
p.s. – a previous seasonal post: the saddest Christmas story I know, that happens to be directly related to the ‘goodness’ of humans.
