Re: How to be less self centered?
to be fair when was the last time anyone used anti Semitic to refer to hatred of Muslims. although i will do this from now on to blow minds.

this thread is geared more towards spirituality so im bringing it back there...

pray/meditate when youre hungry and wide awake.

 Quoting: Legendary


Legendary,

That is one of the best questions I've ever seen on GLP.

The opposite of Self centeredness is Truth centered-ness. You should seek to know the truth and begin to love the truth more than your opinions. When I say truth, I'm talking about what is in accordance with reality. For example, you should know that any given person's opinion about brain surgery doesn't mean a whole lot unless it aligns to what is actually true about brains. If a person doesn't care about what is true and goes to operate on a brain, the patient dies.
The same is true in your relationships with other people. There is a correct way to interact with a person in order to have a healthy relationship. If a person violates that the relationship begins to suffer and eventually dies.

If you understand what love really is (to want what is right more than anything else), then you can begin to judge your actions against that standard. If you do this, you will quickly find two things that hamper that correct motive - the need for significance and the need for love and acceptance. These emotional needs, when not properly met and managed, are the source of self centeredness. Men typically want so badly to be significant that they do things they shouldnt or that are harmful. Women want to be loved and accepted so bad that they do the same. These needs begin to drive people and most people don't even know why they're doing what they're doing. If you recognize these fundamental needs within yourself and seek to become do what is right and best instead of constantly feeding these needs - you will become purpose centered instead of self centered.

Coincidentally, I just found that out that my name is also a tool song two days ago. I searched GLP for Parabola (out of curiosity) and there were "Parabolic" threads about the song. Taking my first listen now.

Re: How to be less self centered?
Empathy is the key.

Practice placing yourself in other peoples' shoes.

Make an honest effort to try and understand a situation from another individual's perspective or vantage point.

To do this you must be able to temporarily disregard your own feelings/emotions in order to assume that of another.

Look at this endeavor as a challenge. It's a skill that you will refine over time. Practice.

The more you are able to step outside of your individual perspective and gain an awareness for the perspective of others, the less inclined you will feel to only identify with your own emotions/thoughts/perspective.

This is the Way! Whether you get a KJV or New American Standard, when you have questions about the original meaning, get yourself an interlinear and see what the original language said, when there is doubt. KJV has translation errors, but then most versions do....after you really start digging in the Scriptures, then learn to check out the original meanings, as you will have questions about what was originally said or written.

We're ruled by our compulsions to a large extent, surrender to your sense of your higher power. Read the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book and work the 12 steps, apply it to any compulsion (irresistible urge to do something you can't resist) and you will be able to bring consciousness to all you do, that transcends self-centeredness.
 Quoting: Isis One


A couple months ago I was listening to a Coast 2 Coast interview and the guest was speaking about spirituality and he was a former alcoholic and was swearing by the 'Big Book' and how valuable/helpful it is. I'm not an alcoholic or anything but I'm always interested in the subject matter of self-help. Who wrote this book and how long is it?

Thanks.
 Quoting: ANHEDONIC


It was written by a founder of AA, Bill W, but the stories come from individuals who have been helped over the years by the program. You don't have to be an alcoholic to benefit from the wisdom of the program. As I said, any irresistible urge to do something you can't resist (sex/porn, shopping, yelling/raging, eating, smoking, dating compulsively, cleaning, enforcing rules, working, you name it) this book can be applied to. When we do something compulsively, it is coming from some kind of fear, which is a sign of an absence of faith. The book is mystical if you ask me, considering it and the program have allowed the worst of the worst cases to recover when no other program on earth offered them any hope.

PS, your post was very inspiring
