Satisfy the horse, and the rider will also be satisfied…

Zett Why

 

Is egoism really a bad thing?

Despite the fact that in certain parts of the book I criticize egoism, I would like to remain objective and mention several positive things about healthy egoism. In the past, when we were small children, we were taught that egoism is a bad thing. Since young children have not developed their intellect yet, they are only ruled by instincts. Looking at it from one side, it seems as if this is the purest egoism. A child is constantly told that he should be ashamed of such a quality. In this way, children are imperatively taught sharing.

In valuing objectivity, egoism is understood as a normal mental phenomenon. As I have mentioned, children are very egoistic, because their ego (I) strengthens or weakens while their consciousness is developing. The ego and consciousness, like extremities, don’t have any chance for survival separately. If egoism dominates in a person, sooner or later he will ruin himself, because the getting and saving things process never ends. Being only conscious and ignoring outer egoism, a person also hasn’t got any chance, because he can’t survive without food. So egoism is a strategy of psychological, social, and even physical survival in our world.

 

Don’t give priority to anyone

When egoism becomes inadequate (not helping, but disturbing life), it fills with sickness, and turns into egocentrism. If a person is psychologically balanced – is satisfied with his social welfare and has good health, then there’s no big reason to overrun the limits of natural egoism, and want more than he has. But if his daily life is unsuccessful and full of never-ending problems and diseases, a person can become egocentric. All this arises from a desire to end the circle of failures, and ensure bigger guarantees for things through constant limitless saving. It is remindful of a child who doesn’t want to share sweets – the more he doesn’t want to, the stronger his mother pushes. Here the law of balance is worth remembering – anything that you allow to dominate you, ruins you. The more guarantees we seek, the more extreme they become. Let’s read an Indian fairytale for this case.

A common mistake

There’s no other way. Many repeat the same mistake – and without care for their outer egoism, they try to throw everything away and bury themselves in spiritual pursuits. In this way their suffering becomes worse, because both sides are unsatisfied. Let me explain this in another way. What would a day be like, if you didn’t sleep well the night before? It is the same for your outer egoism. Care for the horse, and the rider will also be satisfied.
