      While there is evidence that altruism is linked to brain functioning and greater compassion, there are ways for individuals who don’t innately possess the quality to adapt more selfless behavior. Just follow these three simple steps: 1. Spread the love. As we previously touched on, altruism is characterized by helping others. Altruism is acting to help someone else at some cost to oneself. It can include a vast range of behaviors, from sacrificing one’s life to save others, to giving money to charity or volunteering.

      Altruistic Love. 1 Corinthians Introduction: A man received the following letter: Dearest Jimmy, No words could ever express the great unhappiness I’ve felt since breaking off our engagement. Please say you’ll take me back. No one could ever take your place in my heart, so please forgive me. I love you, I love you, I love you!   Altruism is the belief or practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others. The word was coined by French philosopher Auguste Comte, who used ottruisme as the opposite for egoism. The Latin root for altruism is alteri, which means “other people” or “somebody else.” “The world is a pest-house!”.

    It’s Valentine’s Day and love is the topic of the hour. But love is a very misunderstood and abused word. Many people commit crimes for “love.” Many myths abound on what “love” is, thanks in a big part to mass media and commercialism that muddle our ideas about it. There are also so many definitions of love, and the world gets upended because of it.   I invented the crisis and it didn’t, this time, take medical form, but the question seems no less urgent during Covid than it did when I was writing the book last year.
