No matter how the world treats you, you never stop being compassionate. It happens naturally, that you end up putting others’ interests before your own. In your selfless conduct, you discover your greatest happiness.
Something miraculous happens to such a selfless person.
The forces of universe sit by your feet waiting for your command. You can’t be selfless unless you start to see everyone as part of you and you as part of everyone else.
From A Million Thoughts by Om Swami
