What Are You Living for?
What are you living for? Nearly everyone is living for THEMSELVES. We all seek, in everything we do, to obtain relief from the troubles brought upon us by life and the difficulties brought upon us by our own character flaws. Even our seemingly altruistic deeds are motivated, at the root, by some hope for self-benefit. The problem is, selfish living does not work for love. And it will NEVER permit us to live as enlightened beings. Our ultimate fulfillment requires a fundamental change in motivation: We should be living for the benefit of others, as extensions of God's love for our fellow men and women. We must truly abandon our self-interest at the root, and live to love. See Article
