We all act out of self-interest.
All of our actions have a self-interest component to an extent – even the kindest most generous gestures.
Why do we hold the door for others? To be kind to others and it makes us feel good.
Why do we give gifts? To see somebody’s face light up and it makes us happy.
Why do we go out of our way for others? To help others and it brings us fulfillment.
Keep spreading the love. Keep doing the good and fighting the good fight.
May our self-interests align with the interests of all of humanity. May our self-interests be in harmony with what’s best for the greater good.
