the helping-role

I don’t believe in “helpers.” I remember far too well the feeling of euphoria when I thought was doing the helping, at least I was seen as wise and skillful. Oh what a trap this often is for health-personel: we decide what is best for the helpee, and  often decide that we know better than their own intuition, which may be to wait.

T-17.VII. 4 No relationship is holy unless its holiness goes with it everywhere. 5 As holiness and faith go hand in hand, so must its faith go everywhere with it. 6 The goal’s reality will call forth and accomplish every miracle needed for its fulfillment. 7 Nothing too small or too enormous, too weak or too compelling, but will be gently turned to its use and purpose. 8 The universe will serve it gladly, as it serves the universe. 9 But do not interfere.

“Do not interfere” would apply to any subconscious ego-attachment to the great feeling of being “a helper.” A somebody who has investments in helping, and feel better when they do.

It is LOVE that is helpful. Never a “me.”
