Age New Spirituality Inspirational Stories Part 75

There is​ to​ be found in​ every religion the manifestation of​ this struggle towards freedom. it​ is​ the groundwork of​ all morality,of unselfishness, which means getting rid of​ the idea that men are the same as​ their little body. When we see a​ man doing good work, helping others, it​ means that he cannot be confined within the limited circle of​ "me and mine".

There is​ no limit to​ this getting out of​ selfishness. All the great systems of​ ethics preach absolute unselfishness as​ the goal. Supposing this absolute unselfishness can be reached by a​ man,what becomes of​ him? He is​ no more the little Mr. So - and -so; he has acquired infinite expansion. The little personality which he had before is​ now lost to​ him for ever; he has become infinite, and the attainment of​ this infinite expansion is​ indeed the goal of​ all religions and of​ all moral and philosophical teachings. The personalist, when he hears this idea philosophically put, gets frightened.

At the same time, if​ he preaches morality, he after all teaches the very same idea himself. He puts no limit to​ the unselfishness of​ man. Suppose a​ man becomes perfectly unselfish under the personalistic system, how are we to​ distinguish him from the perfected ones in​ other systems? He has become one with the universe and to​ become that is​ the goal of​ all; only the poor personalist has not the courage to​ follow out his own reasoning to​ its right conclusion. Karma-Yoga is​ the attaining through unselfish work of​ that freedom which is​ the goal of​ all human nature. Every selfish action, therefore, retards our reaching the goal, and every unselfish action takes us towards the goal; that is​ why the only definition that can be given of​ morality is​ this: That which is​ selfish is​ immoral, and that which is​ unselfish is​ moral.
