I hope it’s not too much to say that I grew up always trying to help people. Given the inevitable thoughts and actions of selfishness as a human, I have consistently tried to conscientiously help others, save the lives of animals, and be mindful of my actions. I therefore take the time to go out of my way to help others whenever they need help moving an object, or if they need help with a specific task.With that said, I am left seeking a meaningful life where I can effectively help a large population. I know spreading the Dharma is probably the best route for helping others, but I am still somewhat uncertain as to the direction I should go. Therefore, I am continuing my academic studies until such conditions spur my decision.
