I have always believed and continue to believe that we have more help than we require at any point in our life. Whenever I say that during a talk, half the people nod in agreement and the other half give me a skeptical look. While I believe in everything I said, I also want to add that you should have the capacity to receive help that is provided.
If you can resist the temptation to look at this example literally, you will see that there are many situations in your own life where people around you may have the capacity to help but you may not have the capacity to receive it. Remember the law of the bucket and the glass?
Rather than complaining that everyone is selfish and nobody wants to help, should we not focus on exapanding the capacity to receive help?
