The art of unconditional love.
Altruism is the selfless concern for the well-being of others.
Much debate exists as to whether “True” altruism is possible in human psychology. The theory of psychological egoism suggests that no act of sharing, helping or sacrificing can be described as truly altruistic, as the actor may receive an intrinsic reward in the form of personal gratification. (Source: Wikipedia)
We do what we do because it is a form of programming, written into the reward pathways of our brains. Our actions are motivated by the need for personal gratification.
There is nothing selfless here, selflessness seems impossible.
‘Sat Chit Anand’
Sat is Truth.
Chit is Awareness.
Anand is Bliss.
It is the blissful state of true/pure awareness, which is not tainted by any perceptions. The Absolute reality.
It is the highest state of awareness, that is, super-conscious state in which you are neither the observer nor the object nor the act of observation. All the three concepts merge into one unified being which is also you. There is no longer this and that, everything is the same thing. All is One.
It is a state devoid of personal identification.
In this supreme state of Bliss, our actions are no longer motivated by selfishness. There is nothing that you could do to increase or decrease your happiness.
You are in a state of Eternal Bliss, unaffected by anything.
In this state, our every action is selfless by nature.
Playing the game for the sake of the game.
You have to first attain Bliss to be selfless.
You have to be selfish to be selfless. Paradoxical isn’t it?
Entropy, which is a measure of the disorderliness of a system, increases with time.
Life is a self organising being, it’s the opposite of entropy.
Love favours life and it is an anti entropic force that holds everything together.
Lots of Love, Light and Peace to you!
