Mom always lectures ;-) "Support people when they need you" "Dont miss opportunities to help people"
For years I didnt have the discernment to comprehend this and was ignorant of the growth I was missing.
From past 4-5 years though, I am cognizant to this aspect of life. One of the discoveries is that when I give more importance to the community around me, my self worth has actually risen.
Spirits are lively and blithe. Everyday is satisfying because life always has a cause when I am thinking outwards and rather indulging in the self.
I have even gone to the extent of being kind to many who have been unkind to me. I empathize with the individuals I have hurt and give them a true and sincere apology. To respect them, whom I thought I didnt require as they didnt seem to fit in my scheme of things.
Before now, I would have been very hesitant to do such acts, but now I apprehend it all. There are no loose ends, no hangups and my heart is expanding.
I am "no different" from the other human, I am the world. I am ONE with all!
I am devoid of hatred, revenge, hurtful feelings....too good to be true??...huh!! ;-)
...And you can be too, just a shift in thinking :)
