The greatest support we can have is mindfulness, which means being totally present in each moment. If the mind remains centered, it cannot make up stories about the injustice of the world or one's friends, or about one's desires or sorrows. All these stories could fill many volumes, but when we are mindful such verbalizations stop. Being mindful means being fully absorbed in the moment, leaving no room for anything else. We are filled with the momentary happening, whatever it is--standing or sitting or lying down, feeling pleasure or pain--and we maintain a nonjudgmental awareness, a "just knowing."
"Those who know how to think need no teachers." - Mahatma Gandhi - 1869-1948, Indian Political, Spiritual Leader

If your main purpose is seared toward mankind, that's what you promise, not what I ask you to do. Think Carefully. You're responsible for your own promise.
When you make a promise and determine to help mankind, then God will turn around to direct and guide you. That's because of your wish, not because of His wish. If that is the case, God will make arrangement for you. If you don't wish to do so, then it become your personal. If you want to work for God, then God will arrange for you. God can see things in the long run, you only can see things in a short run. Therefore, God will guide you to the right direction.
If you are restricted or limited, only see things in a short run, that is your choice, not God's wish. If you want to do God's work, then you should let God arrange for you , you can't blame God, Good or Bad, you must fully accept it.
You can't say you want to help mankind, but only want to do good work, then who would perform the bad work. You must think carefully about this. It's easy said, but can you do it? If that's what you want to do, God will assign the work to you and you can't refuse, can't complain. That's the true meaning of helping mankind. Can't walk away from difficult tasks because if you did, you only help yourself, not mankind. That's because you asked, I answered.
So it's up to you to make that decision, it's not up to God. You can rest assure that if you do God's work, God will reward you hundred, thousand times more that human rewarding you . Remeber the last remark I made to all of you who study this.
