YOURSELF? Do you enjoy what you're doing? Or do you not?
Are you doing it for the sake of others?
I like to do works that brings joy to others, to see people around happy, i try to avoid what doesn't bring happiness to them. Sounds saint? Does this mean that i live for others?
Removing all layers of filters.. Selfishness in evident.
Why the actions? Because i don't want others to be un-pleased with me. I wanna look good. We like to look good. We want others to think well of ourselves.
"If you look honestly at your motivations, you may find them to be for YOU."
So its for myself? I'm selfish.
Last night as i was driving along PIE(with 2 passengers), i came across an elderly man who just fell off his motorcycle. I stopped by the side immediately, and 3 of us got out of the car to see if we could help this man. He had bruises, he was bleeding. His bike was on the ground, documents thrown out of the box all over in a mess. But fortunately, he's fine; he said to me he didn't need an ambulance. Another 2 motorists, 1 with an umbrella as it was raining, also came out to lend a helping hand. We left after the man and his bike stood up properly and his stuff were back in place. I felt comforted, by the 2 other men. After the incident, i asked myself - Why did i offer help to this stranger? I didn't need to impress the other 2 自己人 in the car or the strangers whom i've never met and they do not know me. I can proudly say that it was a sincere act of kindness. Thank God for that.
So what should you be living for?
For love, for the benefit of each other, but not at the expense of neglecting yourself. Cheers.
