Learn to work on a vaster, much broader scale so that your work benefits all creatures. To achieve this, you only need to change your way of thinking and become aware that you are an integral part of the universe in which you live. Let me give you an exercise that you can do when you are alone in your room. Although you are physically isolated, cut off from the rest of the world by the four walls that surround you, you can develop the habit of stretching your consciousness to embrace the house in which your room is, and the town in which your house is. Then you can go further and remember that this town belongs to a region; that the region is part of a country; that the country is part of a continent, and the continent is part of the earth. And you need not stop there, for the earth belongs to the family of planets that make up the solar system. Progressively you begin to see yourself as belonging to the solar system. The solar system in turn belongs to a galaxy, which is only a small part of the whole cosmos. In this way you come to realize the prodigious truth that while you are in your own little room, you are also part of the cosmos! And since you are a cosmic being why do you always confine yourself to such a narrow range of actions and interests? Why do you not open your eyes and realize that you have a cosmic task to fulfill?

Bad Grammar. Vaster and broader are essentially the same thing. Using them together is redundant which you don't want in English.
