Self-centredness : 5 Min. Podcast
Self-centredness or selfishness may be the root of all our problems. If we could find a cure for this we may be able to find a way to be more present in the world.
When I am concerned with my own losses and losing out, then I am not being present in my own life – I am not accepting my reality, I am obsessing about my own self-centredness. When I find myself struggling to accept the ebb and flow of life and I am concerned with myself and my own self-protection, I am not present in my own life.
Do I find that I give of myself with the expectation that the favour will be returned in the future ? Giving of myself should be done without expectations of anything in the future. It should be without self-centredness.
Addressing my self-centredness is important in accepting how and where my life is at the moment.
This podcast was recorded as a series of lectures given to people in 12 step addiction recovery treatment. The purpose of these talks was to teach and motivate individuals to search for their own spiritual solution to their addiction.
