The Artidote always speaks up for my unspoken musings.

“People think this exploration of self is self-centered and selfish, but I notice that whenever I clear up something for myself it quickly affects everyone around me, as if it were a psychic liberation which in turn affects others’ conflicts. My change of mood affects shopkeepers, bus drivers, policemen, cleaners, messenger boys, besides those close to me. It is like the distribution of a positive current. It is more powerful than the self-sacrifice of the so-called selfless ones, for inevitably sacrifice brings some kind of inner depletion and all the gold vibrations are extinguished.”
