Life can be lived either on the horizontal plane or on the vertical plane.
The horizontal plane is the plane where everything is mostly wrong, everything and everyone is blocking you from fulfilling your desires, of which you have plenty.
It is the home of either/or, either them or you, either you are winning or you are losing.
It is simply the only plane of existence that you can see, if you are in the 99% of humanity.
The alternative, is to see life from a higher elevation where things are not either/or, where you can have your cake and eat it too, where you and others can live in peace and harmony, even if your opinions about important things differ.
Where Selfish is a high state, and doesn't mean someone else has to go without.
