Q: The Kipu said as I put myself in someone’s shoes and empathize with him, I will feel the connection to him more. My question is how I will experience the connection? Through imagination/inspiration? Through dreams? Through mental images?
Kipu: As you expand your empathy in general, you experience more communication on more levels. You are literally better able to relate to others in an overall way.
This is the same idea as copying sacred texts to retrace the mental steps of the teacher. You may take the knowledge that you are in communication, that you are making such connections, and play with it. You can best identify your own internal communications. Follow the feelings of excitement and curiosity about others. That is how such connections are found.
