Thanks Jerry. You have made my day!
I will be very glad the day when I personally realize that indeed I am
somewhere (anywhere) on the path.
Why do I feel I need to help others? It is simple like this. When driving
along the highway, I see a man or woman hurt and bleeding. I stop and see
what I can do to help the suffering person. I just do it. It does not matter
to me how the person got hurt and what could have been done to avoid it etc.
Just see the facts and act as best as I can.
