We often think that when we give someone the answer we are helping them.
By being the shining knight we feel good about rescuing the person from their situation.
In the long run that only makes them depend upon someone else.
To truly help others is to empower them.
Empower them to find their own answers.
Empower them to trust their feelings.
Empower them to see that everything they need is already inside of them.
We do not need more gurus or more masters.
What we need is to be shown how to be our own guru.
When we become truly self-reliant we can achieve amazing things.
Ultimately, our job is to help the other person to see that they don’t need us.
Now that’s empowerment!
