Heaven is eternal-the earth endures.
Why do heaven and earth last forever?
They do not live for themselves only.
This is the secret of their durability.
For this reason the sage puts himself last
and so ends up ahead.
He stays a witness to life,
so he endures.
Serve the need of others,
and all your own needs will be fulfilled.
Through selfless action, fulfillment is attained.
~ Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life by Dr. Wayne Dyer
The Ego…it is powerful when given the opportunity. Here we are reminded to NOT give it control. It does not like this when we don’t put it first and get all wrapped up in our emotions. We must put others first and ourselves last in order to be humbled and fulfilled. Don’t let your Ego (Edging God Out) take control when you are upset or get into a fight. It’s not worth it! Wayne Dyer I remember in all of his talks said something that I think relates here, “Be kind rather than right.”
In the end, it doesn’t matter if you are always right about something or have to prove that you are right or know what you are talking about. It’s about being kind to those around you and serving the needs of others when they need our help. When this is done, we are more fulfilled with ourselves.
