There is a difference between lending a hand and truly lending a hand. We can offer a hand to someone, giving help with a task or helping them get through certain situation. Whatever the case maybe, we can truly help them. However there are times when in our helping, we can actually create problems.
By helping them figure out a task, or we give them an answer, we inadvertently take away their ability to find it themselves. Turning off that hard in us that allows us to transform or to go beyond our physical self or the self that we thought we might be.
I learned a valuable lesson over the weekend. It’s a lesson of observing and allowing. For me to truly help another it is important to give them necessary tools…setting the stage, and allowing them to dance to their own beat. Not interfering, not cutting in, not correcting their steps, but allowing them to just dance.
This is the gift. A true gift of giving to another by allowing them to give back to the universe. Is it in this giving that we are receiving a gift, a gift of observation, allowance, gratitude not of…but of a collective whole.
Stepping into the Canvas with greatest of intentions. Our greatest intentions may be of helping another but discerning when to actually engage may be the difference for full understanding or even their full recovery from a situation.
