Please Help Me

 “Mom, you said that the biggest problem in the universe is no one helps each other.”

– Anakin Skywalker, ‘Star Wars: The Phantom Menace’

We’re selfish creatures. We’re good at the talk but not at the act. We can preach to others about selflessness but when comes the real-life situation we act in the favor of our self-interest.

Self-preservation is a priority for us. It’s hard for us to sacrifice our desires for the welfare of others.

I’m not saying it’s good or bad. I’m expressing a truth.

That’s what we’re…

My dear, you and me.

We are the same because we’re the product of the same civilization that is good at preaching and bad at following.

To come out of my comfort zone and do something genuinely for you is out of my range. I can be good and helpful to you until I don’t contradict my self-interest in you.

To be true to you, I don’t believe in helping others because with that I elevate my ego and it gives me a false belief that I’m superior to them.

What I can do for others is to love them unconditionally…

…With that love comes a sense of responsibility

Out of that an spontaneous action…

…I call it self-satisfaction

I never helped anyone in my life and I’m not guilty of that…

All I ever did was for my self-satisfaction with that spontaneous act people call help.
