• We call people selfish when they WILL NOT give what they CAN NOT give because they DON'T HAVE IT to give. We call people selfish when they take from others what they can not give to themselves, because they do not know how to create it within themselves. And what is this commodity that they do not have for themselves and thus try to take from others? LOVE. It is as if we are asking a starving person to share food and then making them feel guilty for not doing it. We are unable to recognize that a person who knows they have enough of any commodity (especially love) finds joy in sharing. If someone is acting "selfish", they are suffering an inner starvation. And we can not ask them to give to us what they do not have enough of... to give.
