“Make sure your goal is not an inflated image of yourself and therefore a concealed form of ego, such as wanting to become a famous movie star, a famous writer, or a wealthy entrepreneur. Also make sure it is not focused on having this or that, such as a mansion by the sea, your own company, or ten million dollars it the bank. An enlarged image of yourself or a vision of yourself having this or that are all static goals and therefore don’t empower you.
Instead, make sure your goals are dynamic, that is to say, point toward an activity that you are engaged in and through which you are connected to other human beings as well as to the whole. Instead of seeing yourself as a famous actor and writer and so on, see yourself inspiring countless people with your work and enriching their lives. Feel how that activity enriches or deepens not only your life but that of countless others. Feel yourself being an opening through which energy flows from the un-manifested Source of all life through you for the benefit of all.”
Eckhart Tolle, in “A New Earth”
