For Whom Are We Living?

If we live only for ourselves, as most of us are conditioned to do, we will plunge ourselves and all those around us into misery. 

There is no human being who, once he develops this sense of “I and mine” by dwelling upon himself, can remain sensitive to the needs of others. 

–Sri Eknath Easwaran, The End of Sorrow:  The Bhagavad Gita for Daly Living, v. 1, p. 185, 204.
