Ever felt like helping those who need it right away? Yes, many of us feel like helping people at need. But, how many of us move forward and help by knocking off the inner dilemma of mind. This avoidable dilemma consists from shyness to move forward, thoughts which consists of what others think, or what the needy might think ,the confusions of, if my help really matters and many other feelings that swells up due to chemical changes in our body. I term this as ‘fear’ response because, you have not been offering help frequently, an insecurity to the normal pattern of your life events and a deviation from this normal rhythm would make your body to find this situation as an awkward moment.
Then, what does it take to step forward and help as much as you can ?
A simple realization of UNIVERSAL TRUTH. The only truth with which we are born. The truth of DEATH. Your fear, your insecurities and everything else falls off when you realize that you are only a few kilograms of dust in this universe. All that matters is your effort to make this world better before you turn into ashes. All it takes is this intuition within us and keep moving to make this place a better place.
This universal truth makes me step everyday and act kicking off this fear response. The incidence of Earthquake of 7.8R on April,2015 killing tens of thousands, the black year, also did boost my morale to help people. Had I been dead in that instance(though was a near one), I wouldn’t have been able to write this off or help hundreds of people in the ways I could all these months after April,2015. It takes courage to lead and take challenges to fulfill your goal. With the help of kind hearted people around, I could personally make a difference in those shattered houses and broken hearts, providing financial helps, medical help and psychological support integrating all my lessons I had gone through all these 21 years of my life.
I have been helped in this effort by many and the most notable would be the kind soul who voluntarily assisted my effort in child psychological program after the trauma set up by earthquake by providing financial and material help. The child project was done almost in 7 phases, along with efforts from my friends of Kathmandu Medical College and Teaching Hospital. You should always make your best effort so that the help you provide is accessible only to those in needs. Else , it simply is a fraud. Hence, take no chances to make the best survey you can to find the needy, like I personally conducted surveys in those rumbled villages in Earthquake 2015.
BUT , this is not the end to the troubles nature forced us Nepalese to suffer with. This winter has been very harsh. With millions below poverty line and lost homes, many have shivered to deaths recently and many are in verge to lose their life due to lack of materials to ward off cold. To add the misery, the political instability causing economic blockade to Nepal and the incompetence of Nepalese government to provide relief materials to the victims, have forced many innocent helpless families to suffer every single day with cold. But we are still surviving. We are with hopes. The almighty power has blessed us and we are capable to help those in need.
So, isn’t it time to help all those good hearts who have been helping to provide food, clothes or shelter to the helpless victims of Earthquake? Yes, it’s high time we do it. And as my favorite author, Robin Sharma, says, “lead without title” let us lead to make this world a warm world by donating all we can for those who are less blessed than we are. Let us make every small effort to help. Every single penny counts , every single clothes counts and every single feelings to help and courage to act counts.
NORMA LAYTON, who has a pure kind spirit and knows that she won’t be carrying anything to her deathbed has been helping Nepalese Children in supplying school supplies. She has made it on her personal efforts to much but supports from friends was appreciable. She is currently heading to collect funds for clothing for Earthquake victims and help Nepalese be warm. I am much happier to help her in her efforts and would do so in every possible way to make a positive difference in the lives I would touch in days to come. I am not a member to any social organizations, though was asked by a couple and promised good position, after my works in Earthquake. What I always believed is that, you don’t need a title to be a leader. Work the best from the position and place you are and embrace the perfect bliss you feel when you do what your heart has always wanted to do.
Make this your time. Make small efforts every single day. Help to heal every single would that appears to your sight. There is always something you can do. Hence kick off that fear response and join in the efforts of those who lead to help others. Don’t hesitate. You won’t take your car/bank-balance/bungalow with you in your deathbed. You will only take the graces and blessings you embraced during your survival. Your only wealth is the difference you made in the positive sense when you were breathing, the good vibes that you sent and the good works you did selflessly.
So, make a difference in the lives of earthquake victims and support NORMA LAYTON by donating in this link :
