The desire to help always exceeds the "helpee's" desire to be helped

A person's emotional plea as to what he should do in his situation is, in actuality, a plea for commiseration
The most effective way to help is to be dispassionate

The Master understands that human beings are "unreachable," thus he does not attempt to reach them

If one lends his shoulder, it will compel the other to lean excessively upon it
The Master has overcome the need for the satisfaction he receives from helping another

A man who lies flat on the ground and asks for help, has no interest in rising

The man who by herculean effort rises to one knee, is Sincere in his request
The greatest bondage is not the desire to be helped, but the Need to help

99.999 percent of human beings will die having never gained wisdom. They will have lived a life of ignorance. They will have wasted their life

It has been this way even in the days of Jesus and Buddha
The only person a man can truly help is himself

If he succumbs to the traditional meaning of "selflessness" he will pay for it with his life

The truly selfless man is the man who is intensely sparing with his help. Reserving it only for the desperate and genuine few
Twitter, instagram, and all social media platforms are used as trash bins that house empty bumper sticker aphorisms

These do not "help" anyone

They are painful reminder of how shallow human beings have become

And how immune they are to wisdom
The reason that human beings attempt to help others is not because they are being "selfless"

It is because they will do anything and everything to avoid having to face their own insecurities
True Help is the top-most rung on the ladder. It is never the bottom one

Human beings are human beings. Seen as such, one does not succumb to their clever games

The greatest way to help another is to perfect oneself

For, in the end, all great things are Side Effects
