A focus on you or me?

"Our deepest need is for the joy that comes with loving and being loved, with knowing we are of genuine use to others."

-- Eknath Easwaran

Are you more self-conscious or other-conscious?

Watch your motives for the day. Are they generally about you (your own desires and needs) or are they about others and their needs? There are no right and wrong answers here.

We must guard, though, that we aren’t using service to others as a means to get our own ego needs met. If we are, we would be wise to meet our own needs first so our interactions with others are not primarily self-serving.

"We are able to be of service to those who suffer only to the extent that we have been able to transform fear in our own lives."

-- Robert Sardello
