Yes, you read it right.
There was a time , as recent as a few years back, when I used to observe people around me who were selfish and were least concerned about others. All that matters to them is their own life .
Those days I had a very bad opinion on such people.
A year later , ie after my Transplant , I realized that all these people have been right all along and it was me who was careless all along , having ignored several important aspects in my life. I hadn’t realized that my priorities were upside down, not knowing how to put my foot down , by not being bold enough , always accommodating and NOT BEING SELFISH enough.
People who appear to be selfish, love themselves a lot . When people love themselves , they are much more energetic. They are focussed ,are conscious of their health/diet, are disciplined and thus capable of achieving all that they wish. Make sure not to harm others intentionally.
There is only one kind of Love in this world and that is to Love yourself. All other forms of love are conditional and temporary and for convenience only.
So , love yourself , be selfish.
In this Kali yuga , the mantra for success is : be selfish.
