quoting from a little book of "Heart of a Buddha"
Cultivate peace first
in the garden of your heart
removing weeds of selfishness and jealousy,
greed and anger,
pride and ego.
Then all will benefit from your
peace and harmony.
What does one have to do to maintain unselfishness and not being jealous in times of competition and rivalry?
What if in your workplace, someone is selfish and doesn't share information with you when you ask it from them.
And they do not silently hint this to you but openly say, "I don't want to give you".
Do you do unto them like what they did to you, do you remain selfish to them EXCLUSIVELY.
If you don't and you stay on your path and maintain your unselfishness, are you being taken advantage of?
Will people think you're a fool for sharing information and giving help to the other party when that party does not do the same to you?
I remember reading a small section of a book online, Hakagure: Way of the Samurai, it states that if one is always focused on righteousness, one will bring about many mistakes.
Righteousness will always prevail, in under any circumstances, just like honesty.
