The Helper Syndrome
I posted a few light words about working for non-profit foundations over at Mama Manifesto and then weirdly read these words this morning by Ezra Bayda:
Often our efforts, even for a good cause, are made in the service of our desires for comfort, security,and appreciation. Such efforts are still self-centered because we’re trying to make life conform to our picture of how it ought to be. It’s only by seeing through this self—the self that creates and sustains our repeating patterns—that we can move toward a more life-centered way of living.
You can read the light stuff HERE.

I'd love to start a discussion about non-profit organizations, the mechanics and need or otherwise of fundraising, what your experiences and thoughts are.
