Economic recessions are a good opportunity for us to love and support each other. Just like how natural disasters can bring out the best in people. Recently, I asked a friend of mine to tidy up my old lap tops and electonics that I did not need anymore, so that I could pass them on to people I know who were in need for additional income urgently, such as a friend of mine who needed extra income to take care of her aging parents daily living expenses including their medical costs. I also passed on some copies of a book given to me by a local editor to another friend who lost her job few months ago and have difficulty finding a new employment. She resorted to borrowing money from people to pay rent or else she would lose the roof over head too.
Sometimes, I heard people say how unkind and heartless the world seemed to have become. This perception of ours would change when we take the first initiative to help and care for other people. When we do that, we will feel much love emerging from within ourselves. No need to search for love from others. We have it already inherently. Open your hearts.
