can you help someone else today? With an encouraging
word? A smile at the right moment? Helping out
with an important task? We've been given plenty of
ways that we can help other human beings to experience life
in a much more positive way.
can you help yourself out today? By taking a few
minutes to be alone in silence and center yourself? By
giving yourself a small, loving gift? By taking care
of some task that you've needed to take care of for a while?
is about helping, isn't it? Usually, when we help
ourselves, we help others because we're much better prepared
to be of use to others when our own yard has been
cleaned. We can give more easily when our own needs
have been met.
so often we get so caught up in "making a living"
that we don't realize just how difficult we're making it for
ourselves to help others. We don't realize how much
time we're devoting to work that makes profits for other
people, but that doesn't really add anything of true essence
to someone else's life, as a deep conversation or simply
sharing time with them would. We get lost in getting,
and lose touch with giving.
hands? Help yourself. Help someone else when
you're sure they need it and will appreciate it. This
is the essence of life, isn't it?
