LEND ME YOUR LIFE

By

In the everyday parlance the title of the posting is called and referred to as HELP as in would you and can you consider helping me? Who got to where they are without the help of another? You didn't create nor did you birth yourself. Start with this premise and the subject matter has no end to it!

WHY LEND SOMEONE YOUR LIFE?

You can rightfully believe that "they" or others... want and need assistance from you but in most cases won't say it. Do we really want people to beg, plead and give away their sense of worth over a helping hand? Shame on us if we do. Beware of becoming insensitive to this matter for your sake

A HARD HEART

No one is born with a hard heart. It is acquired as you go I am sorry to say for those that are inflicted. I mean this literally. When you turn your back on someone in need or ignore them or worse yet add to their woe, the Law of the Universe kicks in... not on them but on you!

THE RESULTS?

You start to become indifferent. Your distancing of the instance works both ways. An addiction of a sort, one that needs constant feeding is activated. The more wrong you do the easier it is to do it. Here is where the famous & used correctly saying of: God help you literally means what it says.

GOOD WOLF-BAD WOLF

The Native indians explained it this way using nature & simplicity. They propose there are two wolves that live within a person. Both need to be fed & the one that eats the most grows stronger & active. Warriors in battle know this & seek the balance so they may have peace & rest as needed

THE MAGIC OF SERVING

When you help someone out of your drive that is coming from your heart, a magnificent event takes place FOR YOU and then for the other. You are instantly filled with a deep and righteous satisfaction that is beyong purchase and given freely to those who give freely....of themselves!

YOUR MEASURE IS THE STANDARD THAT WILL BE USED ON YOU

If in the flurry of the moment, you dispence your belief for the good or not so good, it then becomes the same standard to be used on you. Amazing this dynamic. That is what is so shocking i.e. when your commeuppance visits! You now are in those mocassins walking the walk of misery

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

Your thoughts are not a reliable consistent source of truth but used at times to deliver truth. It is not who you say you are but who others say you are. The Christ when he visited, expressed this so well and with the highest confidence saying why ask me? Go ask those I have spoken to

IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT A HELPING HAND?

It would not exist. Pause here. It is impossible for mankind to subsist without help whether it be from God, nature, animals, plants, insects and other humans. The symbiotic relationships that interweave in their complexities require one another to do so. One can feed or starve the other

HOW HARD IS THIS?

That depends on the degree of sacrifice involved. The assistance I am speaking of is a natural flow that presents itself according to your circumstances, abilities and capabilites in the moment. If it becomes a burden, perhaps you went outside the allotted boundaries of the testing or situation.

THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL

Parents give and the receivers (the children) are not cognizant of the goings on. Military service comes with the expressed and implied knowledge that your life may be required in its fullness. The Christ exemplified, demonstrated and answered this call, once and for all plus forever giving His life so you may have access once again to abundant life and not just existence. The standards have been set

Now for your part.....

Hello Richie - on the fourth, you continue to bring forth more ponder-worthy thoughts of serving, a giving heart and the reflection of the standards we set for ourselves then show to others.

I love your post - very  inspiring.

This is also true of our own mindsets. Negative or hateful mental output results in the same coming back.

Love this post!  You've explained fully what goes around comes around, of which I'm a firm believer.  Good for you for expressing exactly how behavior comes into play and rebounds one way or another.  A very worthwhile featured post!

Some people know me, some people think they know me, but don't, misplaced assumptions can do that.
What I've always enjoyed about the Rain is people's willingness to help each other.  We learn, we grow, we make friends, and I know that if I ever need to reach out to someone for help, people like you will be right there with an answer for questions such as who to call for a whole house tented extermination :)

Hello Richie Alan Naggar, this is a beautiful post. Our world would be so different if everyone truly cared about others and reach out without any expectations. Sometimes, it could be just a listening ear.

Richie Alan Naggar - they say the heart is where the home is but when the heart is cold and bitter, motivated by greed, I doubt crowds would line up to enter.

Hi Richie! I love this post and find the message to be so very mission-worthy. You spread the word to your readers and I do hope that each and every one of us, in turn, shares your kindness in some measure. 

 

I think you would have loved today's speaker on our AR ZOOM Call - Sham Reddy CRS was an amazing presenter and his giving heart (as evidenced by the stories he shared with us on the call) goes hand-in-hand with your kind words. Thank you for this, Richie!

Richie- I absolutely love your post!!!  One of the greatest gifts we can give to others and to ourselves is to help one another. While I was reading your post, I had the same thought as Debe Maxwell, CRS ...our guest ZOOM speaker today was Sham Reddy CRS who embodies everything your post says.

Without doubt, the most inspiring and spiritual posts ever posted IMO in the Rain and there have been many but unlike this one. Your articulation is superb and your message is absolutely awesome.

I was reminded about the Aloha and Ohana testament from my roots and the joy of giving and sometimes the sacrifices one must endure to capture the feeling of contentment.
