Not For My Own Sake

49.03Using any desires not for my own sake but for the sake of others is a completely different existence where I do not want to live in my usual desires, but I want to ascend to the next degree of nature to the state of bestowal instead of reception.

Question: What is the reason that I have to restrict my desires I receive from nature and fulfill the desires of others?

Answer: This is the program of nature, the two degrees in which we exist. At the first degree we are born and develop, and this is the state of our egoism. However, we must gradually exit it and rise to the next degree where we become inverted and use our desires only for the sake of others and not for ourselves.
