Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or the darkness of destructive selfishness. Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others? – Martin Luther King Jr.
It’s rather dark when we’re all about ourselves and focused primarily on what’s important to us. The whole economy of the Universe appears to hinge on integration, on cooperation and on the growth of the whole as well as the individual. We cannot have real meaning in our lives and certainly no lasting fulfillment if our efforts and time are not primarily spent on others and larger goals.
The universal light shines a bit brighter on us when we decide to devote a larger part of our lives to others. Fulfillment really is that simple because when we do that a few things happen:
- The Universe (via Angels and other forces) guides our efforts.
- Life for others and us improves, gets better.
- We become happier.
