Helping others is one of the best principles of life. Yet, it is true that the most effective ways of helping others is by helping yourself first and foremost. For how could yourself effectively help others if you too needs help?
It would be hard for you, absolutely. Confused and undecided, to help or not to help. Considering you yourself also needs help. And you know exactly that the only way to help is to first help yourself.
So, I have therefore listed 3 of the best ways to help others and the world around you.
Knowing thyself – it’s the first step of helping yourself out of any situation. Is to know thyself. Knowing what you need, what you want, what hinders you from achieving things, what stopped you from becoming what you should become.
It’s because only can we find ways to help ourselves if we know exactly how to help ourselves. As they said, “Seek and you shall find.” “There are plenty of resources available for you as long as you know what to look for.”
And obviously, we share common selves. We need inspiration, we need love, we need affection, and most of all we need compassion. And knowing that, no one out there right who could give you those mentioned perfectly as you wish it to be than yourself.
As it is true that if you’re not inspired, then go out and inspire. If you’re not motivated then go out and motivated. If you want someone to lift you up, then go out and lift others up. If you want friends, go out and make friends.
If you want to be thanked for, go out and say thank you to others; or close your eyes and say to the lord that is in you for keeping you alive at this very moment. And if you want to be appreciated, appreciate.
And if you want compassion, have compassion to yourself first, for you cannot have real compassion towards other if you are angry and broken. And if you don’t know, think of Jesus in the cross, and the crying baby Jesus on Mary’s arms.
Have compassion to your crying baby within and suffering self within. Anger wouldn’t help. Never has it been of help. Forgive yourself; and if you don’t know how, imagine, and believe that Jesus forgives. Allow him.
Know The Truth – It is understandable that we are mostly confused about what to believe in and what not. So many false teachings about God being angry so and so. Of you as a sinner and deserves punishments so and so.
But no, remember that Jesus forgives. He is a perfect representation of how to be a good God. It is true, that we are Hu-man, which means “God (Hu)” “Man (Man).” But some of us losses self control, and that causes anger.
Some of the Human uses it’s power against other human. And that causes disaster and war. Just because we became out of control. Lack of discipline and practice. Lack of proper knowledge about how powerful we are.
Other powerful humans from the past has to use anger in order to make people believe in themselves, in the powerful God, that desire that wants to be expressed. And because of our laziness, probably, as a child I was; then the Gods has to scare the hell out of us.
And that causes those undeveloped people feel fear. But those Gods that did it are just concerned about the people and just wanted for them to grow as well, and their only other way is to scare them if they can’t believe in themselves.
But others did it for power. There are humans who wants to rule and would love to make the world the best as it can be in anyway possible. Even if it means disaster. But there are also others who just want power over others.
But you must understand all of them. All of them just needs love. Just need compassion. Just need attention. Remember what Jesus said, “Save yourself.” Let others be themselves. Do not judge so you won’t be judge. Mind your business.
And know that God wants us to improve. That desire within us is him trying to express through us. Ask what you need and he shall give it to you. Just be more specific, feel and absorb it. Make a clear picture and send it.
Remember that the only means of communication the unconscious and the conscious mind has is feeling. Feel it, be thankful, impressed the source, and have faith in him. Be patient, it will come.
For the meantime, enjoy what you’re doing. And practice being like the thing that you wish for is around you. Live with it, and be thankful.
Inspire Others – the last step would be to inspire others. And the only way you can inspire others is by setting yourself as an example. Someone for them to look up to. Be an example. Develop yourself more and improve to be the best example you could ever be.
Everybody needs inspiration. We need to feel inspired and driven. We need to see, not just to hear. That’s who we are. To see is to believe. If the people won’t believe in what you tell them, then show them.
Let them see that what you believe in is true. And it’s working with you. And that would inspire them. Give them hope and inspiration. Share your stories. Give them something that would help them grow more and more and more and more.
So, do not be afraid to improve. Do not be afraid to be yourself. Do not be afraid to follow God. Allow him to help you. Ask and you shall receive. And know that he is God. Anything you ask for as long as you believe, you will receive.
And remember also, that God that is in each of us, makes everything possible. And know that there is a thinking substance that wants expansion all the time. And that we are one with it. And that you are not alone.
Just remember though, that no matter how far you have reached, how much successes you’ve attained, remember that there is always someone who’s better than you, to serve as your example. And that is God in those people.
You can not defeat God in You and in Them. So, stop competing and begin creating. Begin working with God let your thoughts and ideas flow, and he shall help you manifest it.
