Selfless & Deserving

By Pamela J. Wells
Published: January 29, 2012

There is your true nature and there is your false self (your ego). When I say selfless, I mean egoless. Your true nature is interconnected to everyone and everything. It is absent the ego, absent the identification with the body-mind, which creates an illusory appearance of a separate self. When I say deserving, I mean deserving a great life that you create. It does not mean demanding others give you what you deserve. It has nothing to do with anything external to you. You create a great life, which can only be achieved when you remove all of the obstacles that you have put before you, that hide your true nature of joy and peace, which has no feelings of lack.

It is possible to be both selfless and deserving. How can you be selfless and deserving at the same time? Being selfless is about listening and giving unconditionally, not thinking, “What’s in it for me?” It is about having compassion for others and helping others. It is about seeing our interconnectedness with others, with all life, even though we appear different on the outside. If we look at a deeper level, we know that we are all connected by the same life force. When I say that you deserve a great life, I am talking about you deserve to feel great about yourself (but not superior to others) and to live your life from that feeling and knowing, without the need for acceptance from anybody else. This is not about ego or conceit. You deserve to enjoy your life. You deserve to live a great life and any feeling of lack about yourself interferes with you living life to the fullest. That great feeling that comes from inside, that joy in your heart, from your spirit, from that innocence that you were born with, gets covered up by the mind and the ego (the false self) and the pain and suffering that comes with it.
