Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them. – Dalai Lama
‘The prime or the fundamental purpose of one’s life is to help others’ – This is something that we have all learned from our school days. How many of us actually practice it? Well, it just needs nothing but an attitude to help others.
No one has never asked you to be financially strong so that you could help others. That’s something most of us interpret when it comes to helping.
Have you ever wondered about the people who might earn in billions and trillions and would pay a tip to the waiter at the restaurant but will keep on bargaining with the poor shop keeper?
It is all in the attitude of a person. You need not be too powerful or too strong to be able to help others. All you need is to have an attitude to put forward your hand when someone needs it.
A good heart can only do this! You do not even require to be too rich to help others. It is essential to realize that compassionate behavior is the key to achieve happiness in life and one who actually wants to feel it, will practice acts of kindness.
Another significant factor to value this scenario is to put yourself in the shoes of the other person, only then will you be able to feel the suffering of that individual. Once you are able to feel it for yourself, you are sure to give it the best from your end. If in such a scenario, you are capable of helping someone who is really looking for it, be ready to offer him a hand.
At the same time, it is important to understand that you should not hurt someone. Why become an extra load of burden or another reason of pain for that person who is already suffering? You must know that even if you aren’t ready to help someone, you should not add to his pain, at least!
Helping someone in times of crisis is a wonderful act of kindness. It will put up a genuine happiness in your heart by witnessing those genuine smiles on the faces of the people you have helped and that’s something worth more than even a billion dollar!
