#QOTD #12

I woke up this morning to sad news. An elder in our community lost his battle to cancer. In the midst of me feeling overwhelmed, this quote came to mind. 

One of my favs actually! 

The Dalai Lama

…once said:

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.

… what a powerful message. One that is easily forgettable! I too am sometimes forget the significance behind this quote. 

Isn’t this our sole purpose? To help each other and not hurt each other? 

Irrespective of which religion you follow, stories of offering a helping hand appear in every scripture. 

Help to be helped, empower to be empowered. It’s simple.

Let us strive to be like this; to uplift each other; be it at home, in the workplace or even a random stranger you come accross. 

Offer your seat to an elder, help somebody with their parcels. Assist a fellow employee with a query or information they’re having trouble with. Even just share your smile. It’s  the little things that count. 

On this Friday, let us make a conscious effort to be better forces for Social good.

May the almighty accept our fellow elder as one of his. Aameen
