When Someone Calls You Selfish [quote]

campbell“(Campbell) teaches that doing what someone else wants us to do is slave morality, and a path to disease and disintegration of the spirit and body.

He advises us to listen when someone is speaking, not to the words, but to what is talking – it is often pride, malice, or ignorance.

For example, when someone tells us that we are selfish, it is often because we are not doing what they want us to do.”  – Reflections on the Art of Living. A Joseph Campbell Companion (Selected and edited by Diane K. Osbon) page 8
