Saving the whole world
I found a short message written inside one very old book, by coincidence, when I was looking to find a solution for one of my dilemmas some time ago. I thought it would be useful to share it with others. It’s called “A message to my Son”:
“My dear child,
I have to keep telling you this again and again. And I will continue telling you this until you will understand me one day.
You cannot and you are not here to save your grandparents. You cannot and you are not here to save your parents. You cannot and you are not here to save your wife, partner or your friends. You cannot save even your children! You cannot and you are not here to save anybody at all…
If you are here for something, and you have all the gifts and capabilities to accomplish this, it is to save yourself. And if, by saving yourself, you will also help others – as a side effect! this is heavenly. But not required and not the point of your focus. However, you have to start with yourself first.
And when you understand (or start to understand) this simple truth from your own experience, your suffering may, slowly, start to diminish.
I keep my fingers crossed…”
