Sometimes, I don’t know why I go out of the way to help people. Giving out too much of yourself to others, forgetting to leave some for your own, losing yourself in the process.
Picking up from the retreat, maybe that’s the point? Give yourself away to the point of completely losing ego. There is no me, myself, and I. Renouncing all worldly posessions is too much for me, but giving is closer to that, at least. Giving with pure volition and only with the thought of helping others out of pure compassion and love.
Pure giving dissolves ego, but in this world, we have to play the game.
No matter how much we’d hate to.
We have to.
