“Service to other is the rent you pay for your room here on earth” Muhammad Ali 1942-2016

A year ago I saw this graffiti on the streets of Birmingham, U.K.I reposted now on the web because a few days ago an Instagram story made me think 💭

An image whit camp beds in a big room and a beautiful soul from Verona thanking for all the help received.

I asked her what happened and her answer was this:

“In this time not everyone has a bed and a roof to sleep.

And everyone should have a bed at this time mostly!”

That was all.

I thanked her for the good work that she does in the other people’s life but no reply.

She is not concerned to be socially licked but to bring help where is needed.

As I said this message made me 💭 think and think in the past few days and now I’m thinking again.

What makes someone think about the others and what makes someone really help the others not thinking only but most important Taking Action!

So, even more, what is the difference between 2 people in a Europe under the snow in March when everyone waited the spring to come.

A person complaining that her party at the club or restaurant being cancelled for the snow, a trip long time waited or just the discomfort of being under the snow make some people complain about their situation and Other people Start Thinking at other people and How can them Help and Start to Take actions Through this desire of Service.

I call them The Real Heroes

But what makes a human being act in a way or in the other.

The environment?

The DNA?

The Education?

A superior state of Consciousness?

In a different way, we have just understood that Helping others is not a choice but a Duty a Responsibility?

I remember when a few years ago I used to prepare food baskets and going in the night alone or with my fiancé at the time or with a few dear friends and just leave the food and sweets near them, only when something seemed strange we awaked them to put their food in a safe place.

But still nowadays Verona, north Italy is a safe place so normally we didn’t wake them up.

My idea was to act like this because we didn’t do it for showing something we did it because we Felt the Urge to help.

It was more than a basket of food it was a message that they are not alone, that sometimes good things happen, that in a strange way the universe is helping us.

I remember telling to my friends and family that we shouldn’t wake them up because at that moment we where the real Santa even in the summer.

🎅 I did it not for them even if they were the people who were helped by some invisible “Santas” but being truly sincere I did it for my internal well being. I did it because I’m what I call the Egoistic Altruism.

I did it because not doing it felt worse.

I did it for my happiness.

But the difference Between the Altruistic Egoism and the Egoistic Altruism is so huge and I will tell you more about in the next blog post.
