The ship master is the Living Spirit who comes to ferry you to the Other Shore where there are Gardens of Light and where no darkness – not even a shadow – can be found.” — Teaching of Mir Izgadda 5:6
What a blessing we have to know that our ship master is indeed, the Living Spirit – also known as “Mir Roshkha,” whose name means Lord and Primary (First) Spirit. He is from the very Presence of the Father of Greatness and is a emanation of the Divine Mother’s love for humanity and for all living beings.

When you do not abandon attachments, you are like an anchor that has fallen from its connection to a great ship and has sunk to the bottom of the deep ocean and forgotten by the ship master. You see, my precious children, the ship that I speak of is the Ship of Life which is the Religion of Light that is able to bring salvation to all humanity. The deep ocean is the world that entices humanity to all sorts of evils and is full of darkness.” — Teaching of Mir Izgadda 5:3-5

Along with loving compassion and a listening ear, we can not forget the importance of prayer. Pray together about the issue and keep the importance of prayer before the individual you are assisting. Mir Izgadda has told us that when we wish to speak to Him, all we have to do is talk to Him. He will guide us in the situation by providing assistance through His celestial beings. Love your brethren, do not judge them. Always try to put yourself in their situation and provide a loving hand with sincere compassion. Always pray.” — Teaching of Mar Mani Khaila 1:16-20

If you are the one offering assistance or advice it is very important that you never make assumptions about your brother or sister in need or about situations which you have limited information. We are taught the importance of always practising tolerance, compassion and understanding in every single situation we come across and we must do this without prejudging the individual. Always try to learn as much as possible about the issues your brother or sister is dealing with. Exhibit true compassion. Listen carefully to what your brother or sister has to say. Try to put yourself in their place and ask yourself how you personally would deal with the situation if you were on the other side.” — Teaching of Mar Mani Khaila 1:11-13
