Herodias had a grudge against John the Baptist, so when she got a chance, she asked for a selfish and horrible thing – the death of John, with his head served on a platter. Her husband caved into her request, just to save face in front of his guests. Murder, revenge, saving face – all served at an extravagant dinner party. . How do your desires affect others? This could be issues of consumption, fair trade, or helping the poor. When you take more than you need it damages your soul with selfishness. It also takes away resources from those who need them. Giving gifts is good, but this story highlights how even giving can perpetuate injustice. Too often we give people things they don’t need – while the needs of the world go unmet. Giving gifts and being generous are good, we just need to keep the focus on the life God wants us to have – a world of generosity and justice. . How can you cut down on your desires? How can you take some of the “extra” in your life and give it to someone in need? . #devotion #giving #justice #generosity #selfishness #grudge #need

ADD SNAP... nooshie_89 GOOOOOOOD MORNING! Once you realise that you are the only one who has the power to change your life, you become so powerful because u no longer look to people for approval and acceptance. U must realise that you are responsible for u and no one else this is so important to learn. U become so powerful when opinions no longer serve u and u live your life how u truly want. I really can no express how important it is to just do what u have to do to make h happy and everything you ever wanted will fall straight into your lap!! Think on what u want and the universe will endeavour to deliver u your wildest dreams. But first get your self in a peaceful state of mind remove stress remove negatively and remove toxic energy.

#Control , #chaos or #controlledchaos ? 🤯 Most people live and thrive in either of these states of mind however; they are all #distractions and none of them serve you. Advice: . . Tear out the pages that are of no benefit to your #spirit . Be sure to stay committed and follow through with with great intention. . . Open yourself up to others (trade #selfishness for selflessness & competitiveness for self commitment) but never forget about your #boundaries ! . Stay #focused and driven however, be aware of what drives vs drains you. #behonest with yourself . Allow time for #selfcare and ask yourself this #golden question.. What is it that I truly want? . . Do these things and your answer in the end may shock you! . .

Every person has the same potential of inner tranquility. But negative forces such as fear , #suspicion (intution) , #selfishness , #ego and #selfhaterd can destroy inner peace.

"The Selfish Gene" since Dawkins first wrote it in 1976. He had a noble #goal in writing it. He explained, “My #purpose is to examine the biology of selfishness and altruism. Apart from its academic interest, the #human importance of this subject is obvious. It touches every aspect of our social lives, our #loving and hating, fighting and cooperating, #giving and stealing, our greed and our generosity.” Dawkins was right. The question of #selfishness vs. unselfishness is at the core of every major #decision you will ever make. Who to #marry . Who to make #friends with. Who to protect. Who to ignore. Get this question wrong and you will get your #life wrong. #Evolution Thousands of pieces have been written on the importance of The Selfish Gene to the study of evolution. I am not a biologist and don’t want to repeat them. What I will say is this: this is a landmark text. If you’ve studied evolution, you’ve probably read it. If you haven’t studied evolution, there’s no better place to start (beyond Darwin himself). This is the #book on evolution. But there are plenty of reasons to read it beyond that. #Competition Selection is a competitive game. “Survival of the fittest” has stuck around as a #meme because it works so well across the various ways in which humans compete. Dawkins examines competitive pressures in great detail here. Looking beyond individual competition, he delves inside the organism to look at how individual #genes are competing. This is applicable to general competition. One competitor may be superior to another on average, but how do they stack up in specific attributes? If the situation changes, which attributes become important? How do you play to your strengths? How do you address your weaknesses? #audiobook #audiobookaday #bookclub #bookstagram #bookshelf #audible #read #amazonbooks #listen #learn
Simply put, love is not selfish. Love does not enter a relationship with expectations of what the other person will do. Of course, in romantic involvements, there may be attraction and sexual desire, a wish to be in the presence of someone, but even then, love does not focus on what it can get from the other. When a relationship moves beyond attraction, the focus moves into wanting the greatest and highest good for the one who is loved. "What are you going to do for me?", is not the question asked. This doesn't mean there may not be negotiations in a relationship. It does not mean that chores in a household are not divided up, but when love is coming from both directions, contribution is also coming from both directions. One may make more money than another or there may be times when one completely supports the other, but when love is involved, there is still contribution back from both parties, and it is not something that has to be asked for, nor does it come from a sense of obligation. Love does not give because of what is owed. Owing comes from selfishness. Love gives because it wants to. There are times in a relationship when one party is ill, and the other has to carry the full weight, but love does not regret giving, even when the other cannot give back. Selfishness is the opposite of love, not hatred or indifference. Selfishness, if you think about it, is the root of all evil. Every intention of malice comes from some level or form of selfishness, and selfishness never gives back. This is not to say that someone cannot shift from selfishness to love, but love, once it truly finds a place in your heart does not shift to selfishness. You may walk away from a relationship when the other is caught in selfishness, you may love yourself enough to stop allowing another to drain you, you may recognize that another is not right for you, but when you truly love, you never stop desiring for the other to find contentment, peace and happiness. #quotestoliveby #Quotes #quoteoftheday #Love #selfishness #Recovery #mentalhealth #oktosay #blessings #blogpost #karlyletomms karlyletomms.como
I believe there is a chance that I will see another civil war in America in my lifetime. It may be the only way to make progress. This country is at least 40% people who are violent hatemongers unwilling to change, who will say anything to justify their selfishness and thirst for blood. I have met many of them. We have a deeply rooted cultural problem. It is not just 'the government' and 'the elite'. There is something mentally very wrong with a person who uses 'The Bible says' to justify senseless killing or mistreatment of innocent people. We may never see an end to 'isms'. People will feel how they want to feel. But I believe there is a way to peacefully coexist and treat others fairly and run smoothly as a society. But until we all, or most of us, feel that this is 'the right thing to do', our Democracy and Capitalism will fail us. -Himitsu #amerikkka #america #himitsu #enolareven #cultureanalysis #americanculture #greed #selfishness #hate #racism #sexism #capitalism #socialism #sociology #democracy #toxicmasculinity

Why do people consider that they love you and that they are actually being very selfish..... for example if you call someone when you are drunk, I consider them as very inconsiderate and selfish. Why do you disturb people with your own joy, it give me a feeling that these person are hopeless. How can you say that you love me even you are not sober yourself ? I really think that they are really childish and inconsiderate. Recently I came across one girl under the same scenario which gave me a very negative perception of her. Please, be considerate and let me in peace. 为什么人们认为他们爱你,他们其实很自私……例如,如果你喝醉的时候打电话给某人,我认为他们很不体谅和自私。你为什么用自己的快乐打扰别人,这让我觉得这些人毫无希望。你怎么能说你爱我,即使你自己也不清醒?我真的认为他们很幼稚,不体贴。最近,我遇到了一个女孩,在同样的情景下,我对她的印象非常消极。请体谅我,让我安心。 なぜ、彼らはあなたが好きです、そして、彼らは実際には非常に利己的であることが.....を考える人例えば誰かが酔っぱらっているときならば、私は彼らとしては非常に利己的な思いやりのないと考えます。なぜ、あなたはあなた自身の喜びで人々を妨げて、それは私がこれらの人は絶望的であるという感覚を与えます。どのようにあなたがあなたを愛して私さえあなた自身が冷静でないと言うのですか?私は彼らが本当に幼稚で思いやりがあると本当に思います。最近、私は私1人の女の子の中の彼女の非常に否定的な知覚を与えた同じシナリオの下で。どうぞ、思いやりと平和にしましょう。 #consideration #selfish #selfishness #thinker #brainstorming #mindthinking #drunk
I don't regret my past. I just regret the time I have wasted with the wrong people. 👏👏👏👍👍🤔 #badluck #selfishness
I figured I put this pic up of the rapper #xxxtentacion his baby pic instead of showing you the 20 year old man that was slain today. Now I don’t know this young man personally, but I want people to see who really died today this child, the baby, the little boy. You killed this child, could you imagine pulling the trigger on this little baby? Well this is who you’re killing for now on when you pull that trigger. Someone’s baby, someone’s baby brother, someone’s life. You didn’t kill that 20 year old man today you took the life of this baby.

Would you approach and touch infants, children, someone’s girlfriend, or husband? Humans have social hierarchical structures and norms. So do dogs. Regardless of your intent, when you ignore the pack leader, you communicate to the dog that your importance is greater than the leader’s and mess with the dog’s structured view of the world. Better strategy (every time, unless member of the household or very frequent contact): in the presence of the dog and leader, verbal gesture or physical handshake with the leader first, ask if okay to say hello, and then if okayed by the leader (dog should notice, dogs pay attention to such transactions), say hello. #dogtraining #calmdog #donotpet #selfishness #dogconfidence #wellbalanceddogs #problempeople #packleader #confidentdog
Bowling “centers”, naïve realism, sobriety, the Dunning–Kruger effect, internet-induced confirmation bias, the flat-Earth movement, Randian selfishness, the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon, The Matrix… I absolutely LOVE the miscellany this show.

A relationship with oneself is the most important one in life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Being “#selfish ” has a negative connotation in our society. Even googles dictionary writes “lacking consideration for other people; concerned chiefly with one’s own personal profit or pleasure”, as if it is something bad. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The fact that we will be with and in ourselves until the rest of our lives is the strongest argument for “#selfishness ”. The most important relationship in life is the one with yourself. The one with your body, mind, soul - the you. #mindbodysoul ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Giving love, kindness and energy to others only works if you focus on your own energy levels first. Else, how do you want to give if there is nothing? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For me it’s #yoga or #meditation , taking some time for myself everyday doing something I really love, and then offer what I can give to others. #investinyou ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I believe there is only appreciation waiting for you, on what you can give from the inside.
The truth is that I don’t give a fuck #fuck #selfishness #goaway
