Two for One Special!

On sale, two for the "price" of one when you help someone!

When you help someone feel better, and they feel better, don't you most often feel better? If you think about it, you "spent energy" helping someone, but in the end you both feel better. Can two for the "price" of one really exist when you help someone? If so, how could that be?

First, please review how Mirror Neurons work for Smiles.

Now, apply this concept to other areas of life

This works for smiles, but doesn't the same apply to when you help someone else? From a logical point of view, If you want to learn about a topic, after you learn about it, if you teach that topic to someone else, it will reinforce what you know. In order to most effectively teach someone else., you are required to have a clear understanding of that topic, and by teaching it you use are expressing what you have learned, and that expressing helps to reinforce what you have learned. Sometimes feedback from other people will help you learn even more about the topic.

If you read "Fake it till you make it"? (wiki), it discusses a newer, maybe less known term called the Law of attraction (wiki). The Law of attraction "is the belief that positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences into a person's life." (wiki)

I invite you to consider this:

If you help someone else, does it also help you?

Let's look at it from a "cost" point of view:

Now this is no doubt a very "unique" way to look at a topic like this, but just consider following the thoughts through. When you try to help someone get (or feel) better, what happens when you succeed?

Initial "cost":

If you apply an oversimplified equation (let's call the following creative math), here is a calculation:

  • If you help someone try to get better, at the time you may feel that you expelled energy = -1 (you give energy to help them feel better).
  • When someone you help feels better, they feel net positive =  +1 (they feel better).

If you add up -1 + 1, do you get 0? You expelled energy, and they gained positive energy.

Actual "result":

Isn't the following what actually happens when you help someone feel better?

  • In the end, you feel better by helping that other person = +1
  • In the end, the person you helped feels better = +1

If you add this up, doesn't, +1 +1 = +1?

Initially, we calculated 0, but actually, couldn't the value be closer to +2? How could this be?

Now what does this "score" become if the person that you helped then goes and helps someone else because they feel good enough to do that? What if that person later helps you feel better? Is it possible for this process to continue to add up?

Could the answer to getting these results be tied into creation or that we are all one, AllOne? Regardless, in the end, it's a good result.


In A Course In Miracles it is written:

"Teach only love, for that is what you are." (miraclecenter.org)

When we help someone, all can gain, grow, and prosper.

I invite you to consider this:

Imagine a world where everyone joined to help each other.

".. and the world will live as one" (genius.com),
