You ask, I answer.
In this post, I want to answer a question that from time to time I am asked:
How to help people who do not love or care about others?
First of all, there can be many different reasons why someone does not love or care about others.
One of the most underrated is that love is a relationship, and as with every relationship it requires work. Not everyone is prepared to work on loving others, or him/herself.
This is, in my own experience, the most common cause for the lack of empathy, sense of unity, and compassion.
I am not the only one convinced that we, as social beings, are essentially hardcoded for helping others in our group, be it a smaller or a larger one.
I have a holistic approach to these situations: I encourage people working on understanding themselves, who they really are, what they really want, to the point where they lost their intimate connection with others.
Then, I work on reinforcing the sense, the feeling, the understanding of unity, and purpose from different levels: physical, mental, spiritual through specific practices.
I have seen that this approach is usually effective, apart from conditions where the self-limitations are so deeply rooted that other approaches are required.
In that case, I use hypnosis or shadow work, sometimes in cooperation with therapists, to help people overcome their limiting mindsets.
