Selflessness.


We hear the word selfless bandied about in the media.

It means such things as handballing instead of kicking, or tackling to protect a teammate.

This cheapens the words selfless.

To be truly selfless is to be attuned to the needs of others.
To never think of ourselves but to think all the time of others.

This, of course, is impossible.
But it is something we can aspire to.
It is  something we can do in the moment, in individual circumstances.

Once again we must overcome our fear of being taken advantage of.

We must trust in the goodness of the universe.
