Charity. Fashion trend. This word has become so frequently used by different politicians that we do not even bother to take a close look at it and find out - what it carries in itself, as a concept.
Once my teacher told me that if you want to know the true meaning of a particular word, learn how it sounds in different languages.
Let's try to do it with the word "charity".
Russian language: "miloserdiye" - literally dear to the heart, actions that are sweet to one’s heart. Note: not to mind, not to logic – but to the heart, which is considered to be the keeper of the human soul, its essence.
In English the word "charity" means active compassion and kindness expressed specifically towards the needy, the disadvantaged.
German: Barmherzigkeit - charity. Sympathy to the people, the ability to provide selfless assistance to others. Assistance without waiting for gratefulness and a reward in return.
It is absolutely clear and evident that our present life is complicated and often requires all of our mental, moral and physical resources. Every day we take part in a certain kind of endurance race. And it is obvious that not everyone can make it to the finish line and win a prize. Someone does not have enough strength to reach the finish line, someone is only strong enough to get to the halfway mark, and someone isn’t able to even participate in this race called "life".
Is it the meaning of natural selection? Only the strongest survive?
But, hey, ladies and gentlemen! Every day we all insist so earnestly that we’ve gone so far from the animal world. We proudly wear the title of Human. A person can do so much more than animals. A person can love, cry, smile. A person can be compassionate...
"An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth" and the whole world would soon be blind and toothless. Mahatma Gandhi.
Let’s not be like animals. After all, none of us know where and when we can trip over ourselves. None of us knows the trials that life might have prepared for us.
Give a helping hand to those who are unlikely to rise without your help, and sometimes simply will not survive. Reach out. And let compassion fill your heart and you will become even stronger because you were able to help someone who is weaker than you are now.
