I am talking about paying attention at home, work or during social activities to others who may require assistance to complete a task. This is where the paying attention piece comes in. We often want to help and even though it may come from a genuine desire to do so, it is often not required. Be aware that proceeding in this circumstance may actually cause more harm than good by taking away an individuals opportunity to learn.
So how do I know when to offer my skills and experience to another. As you have heard me talk about so often the key is intention. Our intention in this case is simply to open our awareness, to allow an intimate moment with another being to occur. It's also okay to let them struggle a little before offering a hand up. On the flip-side if someone is constantly coming to you and asking you to do something for them that they are capable of doing themselves, it's probably time to say no!
