Question from the Internet:
“Isn’t it the Self in Humans that is selfish?”
Yes it is the “self” in Humans that is selfish, egotistic by default, but we can develop, upgrade, separate the “self” from the ego to such an extent that it becomes altruistic.
Our whole purpose in Human life is to isolate the “self”, our unique observer and gradually liberate it from the innate slavery under the selfish ego by purposefully, methodically aspiring towards Nature’s truly, purely altruistic, life-giving qualities with the right method.
Then we can reach a very unique balance, when our Human observer establishes a balanced, independent viewpoint between inherent, selfish egoism, and acquired, selfless altruism.
From that unprecedented, independent, truly Human viewpoint we can observe and attain reality in its totality from one extreme to the other.
