    It seems to me doing things from your heart, from love, would ensure that they aren't done from ego. Why shouldn't doing something good for someone feel good?

    Great posts everyone.

    For me, I know that I do need to question my motives and can't rely on "if it feels good do it" approach. My goal is to embrace my time here and try to grow spiritually. I am making progress which in itself makes me happy. I do find that I need to ask myself questions like in the OP. I may find I am doing something, not because it helps another, but because it brings me recognition, attention or even a little fame. That is exactly the stuff I want to avoid and I need to be honest with myself which can be a very difficult thing to do. I can't tell you how many times I've lied to myself in the past. haha

    Hopefully this makes sense. I imagine once I grow more spiritually that I won't need to question myself as much. For now, it seems to be working for me. :)

    It is great to get feedback from others that are further along in the spiritual game. You guys are a great resource and I truly appreciate the comments.

    When you stop questioning,, you stop growing. That's the underpinning of physical reality. Examination of your beliefs, the + and the - ones, see which you prefer, follow that path of preference.

    Questioning, examination, uncovering...choosing...it's why we are her, on Earth, in this imaginary physical reality.
