What’s in for me? This seems to be a common question among people today. Everyone wants something in return. If there is nothing to be gained then there is no reason to invest time into it. What if there was absolutely nothing to gain from helping others? How many people would stop to help?
We preach about karma and how people get what they deserve. However, the focus on karma is always in the negative aspect. Why? Are we so focused on having the opportunity to laugh at others down fall that we fail to hand out any praise as well? This is truly the thinking of a fool.
We would benefit from sharing without the expectation of return. The term “You owe me” should be removed from our repertoire. Life is too short to maintain a tablature of debts. We should implore ourselves to share our time with other. Share memories with friend and family. Share a life with a significant other. What good is having if we cannot share it? 🙂
