there was an entirely different undertone in your last post, which tells me you may have genuinely considered what i said. though i realize, if that is the case, it is entirely because you wish to serve your own ethical code, and not because you want to appease me, i do appreciate that you seemed open to feedback.
though i agree the idea of service generally flows outward, it is impossible to only serve those things outside of us. if that were true, we would not have the words "self-serving" or "self-interest." besides, according to the hermetic principle you can't really take action only for self or only for others. whatever you do for one focus is mirrored in the other. i think that is how the universe maintains balance, though we may not always see the energy flowing to match our conscious focus.
i talked before about how the Pavlina idea of lightworkers and darkworkers is different from the metaphysical idea signified by those terms. anybody know if this understanding is inaccurate?
