Goodwill and Selfgiving

"Not everyone can practise self giving. But everyone can raise the level of their efficiency." How does being more efficient increase our goodwill or affect our attitude towards selfgiving? And do you mean efficiency in day to day things?Jbanks 14:49, 17 April 2007 (UTC)


Efficiency does not raise your goodwill or self-giving, but it involves a parallel effort and has a parallel result at a lower level. Power comes from transcending the ego. Goodwill and self-giving are direct spiritual attitudes to overcome the smallness and limitation of ego. Efficiency is to give oneself to work -- to do what the work requires, not what is convenient or suited to our own preferences. Taking the viewpoint of work -- making work more important than self -- is a movement away from ego. Therefore it has a similar type of result. The difference in magnitude may be 10 or 100 times, but still it will be significant.garry 15:06, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
