The Most Selfish Thing

Psychic Hygiene

“We’ll become lovers of ourselves in the last days.”
Are they here now? Are we witnessing our demise?
The most popular photograph is the selfie.
Is it easy to find human nature to be
Egocentric? The answer comes as no surprise.
Yes it is. Is this attitude worthy of praise?

It’s a thing done in innocence in most cases.
Giving of oneself is the general intent.
But the cumulative vibration is such that
We pay much less attention to those who are at
A bad point in their lives and who suffer torment.
Concern is only with what the heart embraces.

Our society forces success down our throats.
We will do what we can to be influential.
We all want to be followed. We all want to lead.
In the process many become fettered in greed.
Our comparisons with others is essential
To our happiness. The attention floats our boats.

At some point one will ask oneself, “Where is my soul?
Is it where it belongs? Do I have a kind heart?
Do I need to take credit for all that I do?
Do I want to see others achieve success too?
When it comes to my happiness, where does it start?”

Giving of oneself is the spiritual goal.
