Be Selfish. The World Needs You! - Mind Talk

Be selfish, because to me that is the only way to be in the world.

And if everybody is selfish, the world will be very very beautiful. My approach is very selfish. First, look at yourself. First let the light be there. First let love be there. First let some inner treasure be available there… and then you can share.

How can you share something that you don’t have? You want to be loving – good! But do you have love? You would like to be compassionate, but do you have compassion?

Deep inside anger is boiling – and people are trying to be compassionate. Deep down is violence – and people are trying to be of service to others. Be true to yourself and then only you can be true to others.

What come in. The same thing goes out. My approach is very simple, and my understanding is this – that if everybody is selfish, the world will be very much better.

If you can look into your own self, and you can look into your own happiness, if you can create a small pool of happiness within you, you will start vibrating, pulsating with happiness.

Whomsoever will come in contact with you will have a little share of it, because whatsoever we are, we are constantly giving it.

Life is a continuous give and take. It is a pulsation, just like breathing – you breathe in, you breathe out. If you are happy, happiness goes out, happiness comes in. If you are celebrating, your breathing becomes a celebration. You touch somebody’s hand and you have transformed that man’s being – at least for a moment; you have given him a glimpse, a taste. And of course you are related to many people, in many ways…. They all will start feeling.

Many many people who are selfish are needed in the world – they will become the powerful source of happiness. And then whatsoever you feel like doing, you do. If you want to serve a beggar, serve. But first things first. Otherwise you cannot serve anybody because you have not served even yourself.

So live truly, authentically, sincerely – that is the most fundamental thing.

Learn life! Don’t learn how to serve. Service comes as a shadow.

A really alive person is continuously sharing his energy – whatsoever he has – because he knows that the more you share, the more you have.

So my suggestion is: first be selfish, then altruism will come on its own accord. Then it has a beauty… a totally different quality. Then you are not a do-gooder. You don’t impose anything on anybody. You are a sharer, and to whomsoever accepts some-thing from you, you feel grateful, because he has accepted something from you. Then there is no ego trip.

  • Respect yourself and You’ll respect others.
  • Make yourself happy and then You’ll make others happy.
  • Accept yourself completely and then You’ll find no trouble in accepting others as they are.
  • Love yourself and then You’ll love others.
  • Be kind to yourself and then You’ll be kind to others.
  • Forgive yourself and You’ll learn to forgive others.
  • Liberate yourself and You’ll be able to liberate others.

Be Selfish! Put yourself first! Let’s all promise ourselves to be Selfish and make this World still more beautiful!

Please share this post if you agree and like it. Thank You.

With grace and peace,

    Everyone is free to choose their path. Choice is paramount as it is the only way to truly discover the self. Our choices reveal not who we are, but what we need to learn. Many assume that our higher self as they like to call it, knows it all, but if it did, it would not be here learning. Selfishness exist for good reasons but certainly not intended as it is used in most cases. Nature is our best teacher. Watch the seasons pass and learn the purpose of each seasons. Winter is a time that many could consider selfish, but only to recover, digest what has been taken in, regenerate by slowing down. Nature understands that all flows in and out and as such if one gives, one also receives. One honors what he receives but slowing down its giving and fully enjoys his gifts. This is not the same then giving to oneself as pushed by this new selfish trend we are experiencing now. Winter is taking one step back to go two step forward. Thinking that we need self-love to be able to be lovable, is not understanding what we truly are. We are complete already, not missing a thing. Only our ego perception is incomplete composed of layers of veils over veils. Each veil is only the attempt of ego to usurp for itself what it is not its own, and so more veils darkens the horizon. Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar. Being selfish only deprives one of the true riches of what we are. One will never know what is true love until he gives it to someone who will never return it, and receive it from someone who loves without expectations. One will never know its own limits until they are met by someone else limits. It is easy, very easy to be selfish. No one learned much when things are easy. Always remember that the self is not the ego. If things do not flow from within, to out, then they are not real. They are just like fleeting thoughts. They are ego. To be real, they need to get out and shared. They need to take form. That is why the world of form exists and why it is so precious. Spirituality is our roots, and if shallow, can we really expect to rise high as the ego pretend? The light does not belong to us, but is bestowed upon us. Love is not ours, but it flows through us. Life does not belong to us, but expresses itself through us. We are but windows to the most high, the ONE, the infinite. Thinking that we do not have enough for ourselves and need to redirect it all to ourselves is not understanding what we are, and what infinity is. Closing our shutters to hold as much as we can for us, under the pretense that it is the only way to redistribute it is almost laughable. Just let your shutters open as wide as you can, and all will flow through you, never living you out wanting, ever, unless your desires are selfish of course, in which case you will only get the limits of the ego, and that is what so many are getting, and what makes so many so unhappy even when they have it all. When we are individuals (relative), we are limited. When we are divine (absolute), we are infinite. Be careful what you wish for and who do you feed most, as it will be the one that will be the strongest. Feed your limits and you will get more limits. Wisdom says, follow nature rhythm. Give what you have to give, and honor what you receive. It is the flow of things for the one that have ears to hear, eyes to see, and intelligence to understand. All is flow, don’t be a scrooge.

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

Be Selfish. The World Needs You! - Mind Talk

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Be Selfish. The World Needs You! - Mind Talk

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
