When we are presented with the opportunity to extend ourselves to someone else, it is a gift to us. It’s a win/win.
We have given love and received it in one fell swoop. It should be entered into with reverence and a quiet mind. There is no need to be thanked, or patted on the back. After all, we have just done the right thing. That is the lesson and the reward.
You don’t have to look for it, but be aware and ready.
“Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.”
– Dalai Lama
