How can we turn this world into a paradise for others?
We can help them, bodily or with money — however conditions permit us to help them. We can praise and encourage them, boost and inspire them — at every opportunity. We can pray for them, beg the Creator to send them happiness and success — one more time.
Why should we do this? What do we profit from this? We gain a new attitude towards others, an attitude that makes our lives more pleasant and pleasurable, more exciting and energizing. Thus, even if we don’t succeed in converting this world into a real paradise for others, we do convert it into a paradise for ourselves.
