In this video, Eckhart Tolle and physical chemist Lothar Schäfer discuss that no one can act beyond their level of consciousness, including our parents. When we want our parents or anyone else to act more consciously, we are unconscious, creating suffering for ourselves because we are denying the 'isness' of the present moment. We are conscious when we can allow people, including our parents, to experience whatever state of consciousness is arising in the moment, without imposing our expectations and demands on them. This is the state of compassion, kindness and empathy for the humanness of the other.
