WHY HELPING OTHERS TO FLY?
“It is better to give than to receive.” This old adage speaks volumes. The smiles you send out always come back to you eventually.
We all have hopes and desires, and the quickest way to get what you want is to give it to someone else… with sincerity and joy. This is true for all things, both spiritual and material.
“I am one with all there is,” that is, a part of The Creator, and therefore I consider it impossible for me to do something to my neighbour, good or bad, without getting the same thing back. If I break my little toe, all of me suffers, because even though the toe is small, it is connected to the rest of my body. Even your enemy’s happiness boosts your happiness, upon closer inspection. A happy person is less likely to do harmful things than the one who is unhappy.
Jesus was a wise man, and one of his best pieces of advice was to do unto others as you would have others do unto you. This is precisely the point. If you want the love and respect of others, give them the same… generously, with praise and approval. Instantly you will feel as though you are worthy and that you matter. Furthermore, others will think more highly of you, and will not want to be without you.
