Help is one of the factors that differentiate humans from animals. We are alive because we receive help from each other. Can you imagine a world in which there is no help from any other human?

From the day of birth we received help from our mum, the nurses who helped our mum with the delivery, we were helped to go to school. We did many things that we considered right which were wrong but somebody helped us to do the right things even though then we did not understand that they were helping us.

Today, we receive help from each other as we make our posts, somebody up there or down there received a little help that brings some profit to his/her Internet Marketing business. This world is so wonderful because we are always happy to help each other.

Have you helped somebody today?
That e-book may be the help somebody up here need, so rise up now and do it, help somebody today.

    Hi,

    Very good topic! It's true. Everybody help everybody, but sometime the people are individuals and doesn't help.

    Today, I hold the door for someone. I hope to help more people in the days ahead.

    Bye

    I've always been a firm believer in the idea that help always comes back, it may not come back from the person you helped, but it does come back. It's been proven to me over and over. Of course I am not saying I help only because I expect help back.

    Just my experience.

    I don't agree with the premise that animals don't help each other.

    Name some species where one individual survives completely on its own. The mother would have to leave immediately after giving birth, without feeding the offspring or teaching it anything. I suspect no such animal exists.

    This is not correct. Humans are the only species that can survive without help from others.

    It reminds me of a poem I learned a long time ago where there is this thought about monkeys:
    Another thing you will never see
    is a monk build a fence round a coconut tree
    Depriving all the other monks a taste
    the very idea is a disgrace.

    If only humans were more like animals in their attitudes towards each other but we are driven by other forces.

  • I was in Costco in Seattle the other day and the women in front of me had a big basket full of stuff. Me, I had a cake.

    I thought... it would be so nice if the women let me go ahead of her. Then I thought patience is a virtue that I don't' have enough of ;0

    Well the lady didn't let me go through... but her mom did. She said that every day she looks to help someone in some way.

    I was her reward

    She smiled when I told her that my purchase was a birthday cake for me and that she's made my dad.

    ----------
    I love doing nice things for other people. I used to send anonymous suggestions to organizations and NYC agencies all the time. It was wonderful seeing some of them get implemented.

    And in the case of my cake, it felt real good being on the receiving end, too.

    Great post! I try to help atleast one person a day as well as say one kind thing to people that I communicate throughout my day. It might be the cashier at Super Walmart that looks so tired because she is working so much to support her 4 children. A smile or a kind word may make her day. Sometimes, it might be saying "Good morning, World" on Twitter, and you might make someone's day that is having not such a good one.

    My Italian grandmother, (we called her Nonnie), use to cook and bake for people she didn't even know. Just let's just say Mary, who is a friend of so and so, had the flu and was in bed, Nonnie would send chicken noodle soup for her and her family. My aunts and uncles would ask her why she was doing that for her when she didn't even know her. She would say, "It's not what she can do for me, but what she may do for somebody else because I helped her." I believe you would call it pay it forward. Have a great night just because you can!

    Interesting comments from Richard Dawkins about why people do good things for other people, including strangers - he explains it in terms of Darwinian evolution.

    Great blessings come to those who serve and help others.
    The world would be such a better place if we all took up the belief that
    "I am my brothers keeper" meaning that we will help others in need and watch over eachother!

    A good post, but somewhat inaccurate. Many animals help each other in the animal kingdom, but simply on a more basic level for needs of survival. Many animals are raised from infancy to adulthood by their parents. What about a flock of geese in a flying V. They're helping each other to get to farther destinations through the use of aerodynamics. Stating that we are differentiated from animals because we can help each other is an off touch statement; its the fact that out minds are much more complex, allowing us to help each on levels that other animals could not even imagine.

    Hi,

    I totally agree. We all need help along the way. And thankfully, there are those who are willing to help. Giving, or getting help has a value all its own, depending on the individuals involved.

    You know, this gets at the Law of Compensation. I just actually spoke about this topic on a telecall tonight. The Law of Compensation really means there's a universal balance, so that at a holistic level, whatever you put out, you get back.

    So when you are giving from the perspective of wanting to help others with no expectation of return or ulterior motive, you are in harmony with the law and will receive equivalent compensation (or maybe even ten-fold returns if you're in a high state of gratitude and appreciation when you give).

    Of course the opposite is true as well ... if we're in disharmony with the law of compensation then we repel the value coming to us.

    It would also be a better place if there was less greed and more sharing. That's the kind of help that most of us need. This forum is great for that reason. Most of the people in here are keen to share and, thereby, help colleagues who are probably doing it tougher.

    Goo points above. Nice topic and good thread.

    I struggle with being too inclined to isolate. Yet when I look at the successes in my life, I always find that that success wouldn't have happened without the involvement of someone else.

    Someone either gave me a break, or gave me an idea that led to something I wouldn't have thought of otherwise, or contributed something to what I did that I never would have succeeded without.

    Conversely, so many times when I have given of myself without any expectation of return, I have been rewarded in other ways.

    I understand the comment about building walls. It's a temptation for many people (including myself). But that doesn't negate the reality of our interdependence. Building walls only cuts us off from the freedom that interdependence brings.
