AWARENESS OF OTHERS
Often the simplest of all spiritual practices are the most profound. The most obvious way of escaping the prison of the ego is simply to reach out to others.
Decide today to be particularly conscious of the needs and desires of those around you and to ask yourself what you can do to contribute to others’ happiness and well-being.
This does not have to entail grand gestures. Everyday we are surrounded by people in need of just a kind word, a helping hand, or a friendly smile.
Be aware of how reaching beyond yourself affects your relationship with others and how it changes your experience of yourself.
