LIFE PATH 9 – SELFLESSNESS / HUMANITARIANISM
The lesson you must learn is the satisfaction of giving – of yourself, your time, and your effort – without any thought of reward. It is a simple lesson in theory but a very difficult one in practice and is by for one of the most difficult lessons to learn. You must learn the practice of selflessness, giving up material posessions or ambitions for the common good. Your love and compassion must be expressed with purity and understanding with no thought of rteturn or reward. The satisfaction of giving is the easy bit. The difficulty of course is the lack of return.
Your reward must come from the giving. If you seek for more, or have ulterior motives, your path will become difficult and you will find little reward or satisfaction.
