We always hear about how important it is to not be selfish.
But why do we want to be not selfish? It is pretty likely that our motivation to not be selfish is actually selfish.
I am not here to tell anyone that they shouldn’t be selfish. You are human.
But I would like to suggest that you do think of “SELF” less.
If you can bring yourself to do that, ask yourself this question.
“Am I the “ME” that I think I am?”
Side note: I have this little Buddha sitting on the dash in my truck. A constant reminder that prayer and meditation might not give us as much control over our thoughts as we wish. But it certainly does make it harder for our thoughts to have control of us.
