I have a memory that hurts every time as I remember it. It was 20 years ago. I saw a little girl who was begging for money in India. You could see her victimization as you you looked in her eyes and at the way she had dressed. I hugged her. But for doing so I was told off and a stone was thrown at that little girl to go away because she belonged to the untouchables class.
Over the years like this little girl I have seen many children and adults who were wounded, and very hungry in my country as well as other world countries. Since my childhood I have always been very emphatic to people’s suffering. This was the reason why I became clinical psychologist and am doing volunteer work in the world.
I have met many people in different cultures. I realised that "love" is the most important thing in life. It means you are very poor if you do not have it!
Please go and see poor, victimized and wounded breathtaking people. Feel for them. Work to reduce their suffering! By doing so you will love people and your life very much. You will do more as result of loving them. And, you will grow more and have a deep meaning of life by working for them.
There is a Cellaleddin Rumi’s saying that stays in my heart since I first heard it:
"You will rise like the sun if you light a candle for someone who is in pain"
Be a sun…. with Love,
