The more we tune into our feelings the more we become capable of raising our vibration. If we think of our mind as a radio that is sending and receiving frequencies, we have a clearer idea of how thought patterns work. A lower vibration will capture lower vibrational thoughts, negativity, judgment, criticism, etc., while a being who is vibrating in a higher state will begin to grasp thoughts that are more loving. In our essence, we are all one, and the greater our frequency, this truth becomes something that we not only know, but something we actually experience. A being who is resonating in a higher state is much less likely to inflict pain on another because intuitively they know that what is done to the other is ultimately done to the self, which is why compassion and love become their natural state.
