The Act of Helping Others
Life is to be lived in such a way that it will be worthy of an example to someone you are related to, through any means. The saying, “Live and Let Live” often proves to be a sense of selfishness. The act of helping others looks so simple to hear, but to actually perform this task; it takes a lot more than that.
We all exist in this very world in order to fulfill all the purposes that life demands. This task is not that difficult if you put all the equations to a single frame. It is just the selfless attitude and desire to help that takes it all to accomplish the most beautiful deed.
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
What it Really Takes to Help Others?
As already mentioned, if a man possesses the traits of selfless attitude and desire to help, then he can certainly manage to fulfill this act. And life doesn’t demand from us that we ought to help each and everyone we are related to.
It certainly is impossible to help everyone. But what we really need to realize that there exists a certain someone for each and everyone amongst us. So we have to make this point count. The act of helping others thus becomes so simple. Doing something good for someone and lightening his burdens undoubtedly gives you the best feeling.
It is often misunderstood that this act only involves helping physically, through money and matter, but is quite not that. This act can be in any form, regardless of what you possess; it just requires the proper mindset amongst those who are willing to help.
“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”
― Charles Dickens
What Do We Really Get in Return By Performing the Most Beautiful Deed?
It certainly takes a mind full of wisdom to realize the offerings from the Almighty when we commit the most beautiful deed. Helping others provides us with inner satisfaction and a sensational thrill in our mind that can only be felt and not exactly expressed through words and literature. It is the most natural task one can so easily manage to perform.
“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”
― John Bunyan
The Invaluable Satisfaction of Performing This Act
We can conclude by stating the fact that the potential purpose of our existence is well and truly fulfilled if we manage to help others; with our selfless attitude and desire to help. This is indeed the most beautiful deed which comes only naturally. And you got to feel lucky if you’re the one who is solely responsible in bringing a smile in one’s face.
“Love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead.”
― Mother Teresa
