If we could tune out the rat race life’s busyness, for a short while, we would notice something rather curious around us, something amazing even.
Lurking in our bathrooms, kitchens, offices, schools, clubs, on the streets, on the radio, cars, BlackBerries and indeed everywhere are these multi-coloured, multi-dimensional phenomena. We see them when sleep, eat, read, think, work, play, drive. They won’t leave us alone. There are millions of them; some mean nothing to us, and others mean everything.
The word is negative, yes! But let’s hypothetically rid it of that connotation. It is only natural to be selfish; it doesn’t make you a bad person, it makes you human. I’m not saying it’s alright to be selfish, I’m saying it is oh, so true.
From the loving mother to the business owner, from the driver on the highway, to your best friend or even your wife: they are all a ‘Selfish bunch!’ The philanthropist involved in charity is probably the most selfish of them all. Tell me, is he not looking for self fulfillment, inner peace, and some good works to his name or even some good press?
