Perfect Selflessness

“I derive neither pleasure or sadness from giving. I give not because I must but because it is an all consuming characteristic of what I am. It is not a desire or a thirst and I wish for nothing in return except for the capability to continue doing it but I do not give to sustain this ability.” – A possibility of Elolight.

There is not very much that gives as much joy as giving. Yet even our mostĀ noblestĀ of intentions has roots in want. We help others because we want to improve the world for ourselves. It is impossible to escape this reality but we can start to imagine this capability even if we don’t possess it yet.
