To Serve Man - The Lie Of Philanthropy
Don't expect gratitude and you won't be disappointed. Do things because it is the right thing to do and in doing so you feel your heart swell up with love for your fellow man.
We do it because we can, 'cause we know how. We do it whether people remember us or not, in spite of the fact that there's no shiny reward at the end of the day…other than the work itself.
'Angel' from the TV series Angel (S5:E6)
A good deed becomes tainted when you expect something in return.
Duane Alan Hahn
In truth, by giving, everyone wins. The recipient wins because by becoming open channels for synchronistic flow, you allow this flow to reach him or her through your act of giving. And you win because by being an open channel, more shall flow into your life. A river receives from upstream what it sends downstream. Likewise, what you give, you receive.
It is one of the most beautiful compensations in life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
STO means “service to others”—both these terms were used in abbreviated form later in the Cassiopaean Material.
These represent the negative/positive spiritual orientations, or paths of spiritual evolution. The STO path serves self by also serving others. The STS path serves self at the expense of others. STO is the path of balance and maximum freewill, while STS is the path of imbalance and maximum control over others.
There’s a common misconception that STO means never serving self, and blindly serving others and getting eaten alive by abusers taking advantage of one’s kindness.
That is not at all what STO is. STO is serving the spiritual upliftment and empowerment of others, which doesn’t happen when you’re just feeding their egos or predatory impulses.
If you are unwise and ruin your health and life overextending yourself, you end up reducing your lifespan and energy and thereby reduce how much total positive impact you can have. Which is why STO is about balance and maximization, balance between self and others.
STS is a path of evolution in the sense that one becomes more perfected as a separated fragment of the Creator, by rebelling against Creation and trying to make everyone else an extension of your will. The end destination of that path is to merge with the sleeping half of creation, which is physical matter. Before that, such beings make it up the ranks of the demonic hierarchy and eventually cave in on themselves from being so dark and low vibrational.
Nothing is so hard for those who abound in riches to conceive how others can be in want.
The best way to keep good acts in memory is to refresh them with new.
It is better to give than to lend, and it costs about the same.
Sir Philip Gibbs
The money you make will only serve you as well as you serve others.
Duane Alan Hahn
Give help rather than advice.
Marquis De Vauvenargues
He who waits to do a great deal of good at once, will never do anything.
Save a drowning man today and teach him how to swim tomorrow.
Duane Alan Hahn
Never look down on anybody unless you are helping them up.
Give a man a fish before you teach him how to fish or he may starve before he learns.
Duane Alan Hahn
We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
Dr. Loretta Scott
Everything you do, do out of sincerity, or the benefit of the action is lost.
God from #ad Conversations with God (Book 3) through Neale Donald Walsch
Charity is injurious unless it helps the recipient to become independent of it.
John D. Rockefeller
Are your fellow humans enlarged or reduced as a result of your help? Have you made them bigger or smaller? More able or less able?
God from #ad Conversations with God (Book 1) through Neale Donald Walsch
We do not quite forgive a giver. The hand that feeds us is in some danger of being bitten.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The proverb warns ''Don't bite the hand that feeds you.'' But maybe you should, if it prevents you from feeding yourself.
The best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your own arm.
Never stand begging for that which you have the power to earn.
Miguel De Cervantes
Give a beggar a dime and he'll bless you. Give him a dollar and he'll curse you for withholding the rest of your fortune. Poverty is a bag with a hole at the bottom.
Help a man against his will and you do the same as murder him.
Do not free a camel of the burden of his hump; you may be freeing him from being a camel.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Some people have messed up, backward brains. They look down on charity and refuse to accept it, but they see nothing wrong with theft. I know that strings are usually attached to gifts, but stealing chips away at your soul. It's better to deal with the strings. If scissors don't work, try a chainsaw.
Duane Alan Hahn
Note to crazy people:
I do not mean you should stab charitable people with scissors or dismember them with a chainsaw. I mean it's better to thankfully accept charity than to steal and if a person who presents you with a gift tries to control you, make it clear that they don't own you. You should do it as nicely as possible, but some people may need stronger words before it will sink in.
Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I've been taking #ad Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn't bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can't tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by William Davis and Ivor Cummins. It seems that most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: #ad Undoctored, #ad Wheat Belly, and #ad Eat Rich, Live Long.
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground. Also remember that good people clean up after themselves at home, out in public, at a campsite and so on. Leave it better than you found it.
Seems like more people than ever finally care about water, land, and air pollution, but the climate change cash grab scam is designed to put more of your money into the bank accounts of greedy politicians. Those power-hungry schemers try to trick us with bad data and lies about overpopulation while pretending to be caring do-gooders. Trying to eliminate pollution is a good thing, but the carbon footprint of the average law-abiding human right now is actually making the planet greener instead of killing it.

Take a look at my page called The H Word and Beyond. You might also want to look at my page called Zinc and Quercetin. My sister and I started taking those two supplements near the end of 2020 in the hopes that they would scare away the flu and other viruses.
