Dear everyone, I myself have ever helped someone needing some money when someone stole her money. It happened in the central railway station of Jakarta-Indonesia, Stasiun Beos. She cried as she had no more money for the transport. Then, I give her some money. She thanked my much. She prayed for me. I did feel very happy that I could help others. And I promise to help others as long as I am able to. What about you, guys?

Yes it does make us happy! And it attracts good things in return to be this way. What we give we receive! It may not be like for like as such or doesn't mean that now that you have given this girl money now you too will receive money; it means that your positivity and kindness will attract more positivity! If all people could be this way then the world would be a far better place.

I do believe that helping others can bring us happiness. However, I don't think this is true for everyone. Not everyone has this mindset. I like helping others just because. And if the places were swapped I'd appreciate the help. I always put myself in other's shoes. Helping really does make my day.

Hello thinkbest Real I feel happy while helping others whether it is by kind or money.When you help others you may feel one type of mental peace. It is true that if you give something to others in turn you will get some thing from others. God help those who helped others. In one occasion I can recall an incidience which I have experienced , in India during the month of July-aug)Shravan month) a big sharavani festival held at Baidyanath dham,(Lord Shiva)which is situated at Jharkhand State.Lakhs of devotees gathered in the mela .One lady was crying along with her child. We asked her about the reason . She explained that her money was pickpocket and she is having no money even to feed her baby. We few people handed over little amount to the lady and also appealed other devotees to help the lady. You will believe or not most of the devotees donated money to the lady , some devotees offered milk to her child and it is amazing to see such humanitarian values.On that day I really feel peace and also proud that we Indian always lending our hand to help others irrespective of caste, creed and custom. pkc3000
