Project 365: Day 72 – Act Selfless, You Will Be Infinite

by matt on May 2, 2010

Cup of TeaI was having a cup of tea today when I noticed the words at the end of the string on the tea bag. “Act Selfless, You will be Infinite”. 

Is this just cheesy tea bag wisdom or something more?  Can we actually learn something about ourselves from tea?  I don’t really know but it posed a thought in my mind.  When I help people am I really helping them as a selfless act or am I thinking about what kind of reward or benefit I can gain?  I liked this quote I saw recently:

“In helping others, we shall help ourselves,
for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.”  – Flora Edwards

When I think back on all the times I have helped others without expectations I realize how satisfied and fulfilled that made me feel. 

So what does this mean to you?
