Investment Turns into Love
How do I reach a situation where the connection between us will be more important to me than myself?
It is written, "We will do and we will hear." Why? Because, you can do things without desire. Through shame, through honor, you can come and bestow to the society.
Our ego maintains us and pushes us into a comfortable state with the surrounding. We have to use this. All the duties, all the responsibilities in the group, and all the various connections with the friends are all there to appear good in matters of the society. Begin working with it; begin bestowing to the group, and through your influence on them, through your investment in them, the group will turn into something precious for you.
The more you invest in the society, the more you put yourself into it. And then, after the investment in them becomes great, you can't leave them. The group becomes a part of you and you become a part of it. You care about the society because it is really yours, and then you begin to love.
