No.12 On Caring for Others

Though you may be really busy with your own affairs, if you care for others and think of this or that you could do for them, then it will miraculously make you feel even better about yourself.

The sense of responsibility you feel, however small it may be to begin with, will start to grow and help create within you a sense of confidence, decision and continuity. Such a spiritual development given us so naturally like this is what we call “love and compassion.”
