We Can’t Stop Being Selfish

We can’t stop being selfish, it’s our nature. Using the ego for my basic needs is not a problem. It’s a problem that we use the ego for things we don’t need and are even harmful to people and the environment.

If we realize that we all have an ego and if we see that in the meantime we are all dependent on each other, then we can start using our ego for the greater good; I don’t want to receive for myself anymore, but I want to receive for the collective (humanity).

A shift from me to we.
