Collectivity - it is always in our interest to work for it

Human beings have a natural tendency to meet their needs and solve their problems without taking others into account, and even at the expense of others, if they deem it necessary. Well, these are serious mistakes. For your own benefit, I will tell you that you must now decide not to work for yourself alone, but for the collectivity. Yes, it is in your own interest because you are a part of the collectivity, and when it improves and evolves, you are a beneficiary. You reap the benefit because you have placed your capital in a bank called the human family or the universal brotherhood, of which you are a member. Whereas when you work for the benefit of your limited self, nothing good happens to you as a result. You will say: ‘But, of course, that is because I have worked for myself.' No, it is because your separate and egotistic self is a bottomless pit which is always dissatisfied and, by working for it, you throw everything into it. You must therefore change the purpose of your work and place it very high in an ideal of universality.
