Helping others

What we think others need, is actually what we need.

When we judge others, we are really judging ourselves.

When we criticise, judge, compare, even well-intentioned thoughts of helping others, it is actually a reflection of ourselves and our needs. Instead of looking inwardly, our egos make us look outwardly to place our own frustrations on others or to build a feeling of superiority to make us feel better. So we can say that ‘I know best’ or ‘they’re doing it wrong’.

If we all focus on helping ourselves, and not judging, criticising, or ‘helping’ others, then we expand and are able to be an example and bring our light to others, not our interference, coercion or negativity. We have no right to assume we know others inner story or that we know what is best for them. We do not own others, we are all equal souls and can content ourselves with just being and letting others be.

Helping ourselves is a positive thing for ourselves and others, judging or forming opinions of others is only damaging and negative for ourselves and others.

Let’s get serious

Well, not really.

Seriousness is a waste of energy and is derived from the mind and its attempts to protect its self-image, the ego. We have to be seen to fit in and be ‘grown-up’, we can not allow ourselves to be exposed, vulnerable or seen as foolish by others.

Laugh, let go, accept, be at peace, see the funny side of things and be able to see the good in everything. It is part of living in the moment and enjoying life, which is a choice we can all make.
