Question: We are created in order to receive and to bestow. Should everything be in moderation? Not just bestowal without egoism?
Answer: Of course not. First, egoism does not disappear. We use it all the time. Second, reception and bestowal must be balanced. Only then will there be a dynamic equilibrium in the system.
It is necessary to bestow and to receive. One against the other; one part receives, the other part gives—as in each person, and in society, and in the entire system in general. This is what we must learn.
