If we take a look around us, we see many needy people. Sometimes we feel like reaching to them and help them, sometimes we really go and help them and sometimes we pass on by complaining or ignoring.
Personally, I have experienced two states of mind related with social service. They are:
1. The world is doing fine: As long as you have no experience of helping a needy person, you feel like there is nothing that needs to be done for others. In other words, you feel like the world will keep moving even without your participation in helping others. It seems that the world will take care of itself on its own. You do see the pain & misery of this world from the point of view that, things will be taken care on its own. And you move on.
2. It’s not enough: And as you start helping others, you realize the fact that, no matter how much help you can render to others, it’s not enough, it’s never enough. You don’t get the pleasure of helping two needy people, but you feel the pain of not being able to help the other two. But this mentality can be observed only if you dwell into nature helping others in real.
What’s your take on this?
