Our strong ego-driven habitual tendency

Our strong ego-driven habitual tendency is to think of ourself, again and again and again. It often takes intention to think of others. And then, when we do, it is often out of jealousy, insecurity, or arrogance. Concern for others’ welfare is immensely beneficial. It opens our heart, makes us happy. It primes and prepares us for practicing love and compassion, when the opportunity arises. It trains our heart and mind to be less selfish, more loving, and much happier. It is more in tune with reality of selflessness. Why not be happy and train in concern for the welfare of others more of the time?
