I agree with you that maybe people who need help couldn't care less what you are aligned with, which is I think what you meant. If they could care less, then...well, never mind the language police.
What I'm talking about is the way of being for the person who wants to make a difference in the world
, not the person who receives help. If you are misaligned with power, truth, or love, you're just not going to be as effective in pursuing your aim; you'll find yourself stopped. For instance, if you want to contribute but you are misaligned with power, you may never get your butt off the couch. If you're misaligned with truth, people will eventually stop trusting you and they'll be unwilling to accept what you have to offer. If you're misaligned with love, people will instinctively recoil or at least your gift will lack real connection -- you won't be able to really feel what there is to feel in giving.
One way that may show up is sincerely and generously wanting people not to fall for a load of crap, and ending up being
or creating a load of crap yourself. People tend to recognize their inner truth, when they reach it.
