The fly on the wall

What would we see if we could place ourselves out of the picture?  Like an impartial outsider looking through a clear window, we see a new world. Without greed, arrogance, hate and everything evil that is attached to our selfish minds, we can see more clearly the world around us. With the elimination of our precious baggage, we see the world in a different perspective. 

We see the peasant and the emperor at the same level of importance. Money and power and other selfish goals become nonexistent. We see a world where many people are suffering.  But because, we are devoid of our self-concerns, we are able to discern the concerns of others. Helping others and lessening the sufferings become our goal.

But does this mean that we abandon our goals and aspirations? It is okay to strive to become a chief executive officer, professional athlete, or a politician.  These are goals that can run parallel with our detachment of evil.  Following our goals and aspirations, often bring upon people who we can assist and nourish; other times, it brings forth people who help and assist us.

Continue to have goals and aspirations. They become the portal where people come into our lives.  When others come into your life, take yourself out of the picture, and ponder.  Remove greed, arrogance and self love from your mind.  Pray for God’s assistance. Help others!
