"The spiritual life is a call to action. But it is a call to ... action without any selfish attachment to the results."
-- Eknath Easwaran


Many of us feel deeply that we want to make a difference -- we want our lives to mean something in the bigger scheme of life. While this is a noble motive, we might want to explore what lies at its root.

Does the drive to make a difference arise from ego's need to feel worthy? If my ego is not convinced that I matter, I may want visible proof that I do by making some kind of impact on life.

Soul doesn't need proof that it's worthy. Soul thrives in being awake and connected. Perhaps if we let go of the pressure we feel from our ego's need to be recognized, we will be more open and able to simply live soulfully. And by doing that, we WILL make a difference!

"A person's worth is contingent upon who he is, not upon what he does, or how much he has.
The worth of a person, or a thing, or an idea, is in being, not in doing, not in having."
-- Alice Mary Hilton

As incarnates can we ever be totally divorced anyway from our ego?  It's a similar situation to that of unconditional love; can we ever truly express that or is it always likely to be influenced by the constraints experienced when living in human form?
