Helping and caring for others is a fundamental ethic of human life. Altruism, that is, investing in others and in the welfare of the country and the world, as well as a life of self-sacrifice and service to others, may be perceived in today’s society as a stupidest philosophy of life. Nevertheless, as you come to understand the deepest truths, you will realize that altruism is the secret to achieving eternal happiness and the most rewarding path for human beings.
Be more unselfish! What does this mean? The one who is more altruistic becomes the leader. Among the ten people, the one who loves the others and lives for the other nine takes center stage. They will all go searching for such a person.
People think that living for others is not good. But in this way you take center stage, you become a leader. This is why you need to understand the concept of living for others. It is not at all bad or unprofitable.
Good is unselfish and altruistic, while evil seeks to satisfy selfish desires.
The unselfish person with a social mindset will achieve prosperity because he is a reflection of the Heavenly Parent. The selfish man, on the other hand, will fail because his character is more like that of a traitor. Such is the law of Heaven.
How do we find the key to banish evil from everywhere? That key is to live for others, to die for others, and to embody altruistic love. When we do this, selfishness will no doubt disappear forever, shattering all the barriers and national boundaries it itself has erected.
Developed countries must reach out and support developing countries. The attitude in any nation must change from selfish to altruistic. That in itself would be a revolution. This can only happen if heads of state see themselves as parents. Then all countries will treat each other as brothers and sisters. We will be able to look at things with fresh and renewed eyes, and new possibilities will open before us.
