“It seems to be that the key to happiness lies in getting over yourself. The happiest times of my life have been when I was more involved in something I was doing for others rather than in something I was doing for myself. For any perception that focuses only on our separate needs will ultimately breed fear, and any perception that focuses on our oneness with others breeds peace. Many people struggle and fail to find peace within themselves because they don’t realize who their ‘self’ is. That is why the ego is so dangerous: it would have us believe that we are separate, when in fact we’re not. We can’t have inner peace unless we feel complete within ourselves, and we can’t feel complete outside our connection with other people.”
Marianne Williamson, in “The Gift of Change”
