Selflessness caters characteristics more profound within the human psyche than most others that can ever be described or expressed by an individual. One must completely engage their inner standers of compassion to aid another in moments of weakness or hopelessness. The merciful services rendered in absolute trust and self-sacrifice depicts the sheer intent for selflessness.

The honor, courage, and immaculate assistance is something all are fully capable of giving to another human being. It is a downright amazing feature we have  to hold within our core. The act of selflessness allows an everlasting level of moralistic and significant values of compassion deep inside the beholder.

There has either been or will be a space in time when each person must take and accept their duty to facilitate the needs of another. This may be demand on behalf of a friend, family member, acquaintance or a compete stranger. This is when the sheer action for selflessness and sense of self-sacrifice are in order to help in some way, shape, or form.

An uncanny sense of aim is reinforced to embody only the most sincere presence of compassion for those in need. These targeted, individuals, victims or traces of innocent life is seen often, maybe daily, for some. These people need an opportunity to be provided with assistance. Unfortunately, only a mere few are willing to accept the responsibility of this challenge to actually do anything..

Selflessly supplying someone with your own inner-strength, awareness, and ultimate power becomes the primary function self-sacrifice and has a sense similar to that of a hero. This action reflects one with a kind heart and pure motive to assist another without ever expecting or ever asking of anything in return.

Therefore, the million dollar question then becomes,  why are some reluctant to offer an abundance of assistance to another, versus those whom carry within the “hero-like” essence to rightfully bolt to anyone in need, no matter how significant the aid demands?

Character Representations below are believed to be the most common influences of reluctance:
  • Fear: Being afraid for personal safety or not trust loyal intention of those asking for assistance
  • Powerlessness: Feeling nothing can be done by their hand, lack of experience or knowledge
  • Selfishness: Normally a type of person that asks, “Why would I help this person?”
  • Insecurity: : Feeling incapable to provide resourceful aid or afraid their help is not satisfactory
  • Presumptuous: To assume “Someone else will help …”

So, how can one develop a surefooted approach to become an able-bodied member of society and overcome the reasons of “why not” , instead asking, “how” they can help?

Genuinely, all have the ability to produce reasonable aid to those carrying within a burden of any sort or a loss of faith to help themselves. To acquire a foundation for substantial selflessness is entirely related to the act of being able to release. One must make the choice to release their anger, powerlessness, insecurities, assumptions, doubt, fear and selfishness. Once these have been set aside for release, then the capacity to provide the gift of a helping hand becomes more profound.

Anyone can change their predisposed views to renew a balanced perception to then retrieve a level of power, trust, confidence and more of a positive, heart-felt motive for the newly discovered empowerment. Empathy is the psychological admiration humans have to visualize or modify our own perception to truly feel another persons’ point of view or circumstance. This can depict the wise wolf within a pack of thousands. This then embodies a willingness for selflessness though self-sacrifice and compassion.
