We can become the best versions of ourselves when we realize that we need to achieve love for one another.
When we reach a state of loving others, we exert our energy into that love, and we then want nothing for ourselves but only the ability to benefit, support and encourage people.
Realizing this ability means overcoming the egoistic force within us—human nature, our desire to enjoy at the expense of others—with the altruistic force of nature. With such an overcoming, we reach balance with nature.
The egoistic force remains within. It acts as a minus, and then the minus and plus—the altruistic force—function optimally in order for us to achieve our common goal: the unification of everyone and everything into a single whole.
