33. The Dao of Non-Self
1 A benevolent person is one who can love others. When having a heart for saving others, you become unselfish, which means that you have forgotten all about yourself. You have no personal materialistic desires, have no selfish thoughts, and you think of others.
2 By doing so, you will develop an open mind naturally. You will learn to accept differences and you will accumulate blessings. This is why you can enjoy a long life. Therefore, this is why I said before that “I control my own destiny.”
3 Those who want to live a very long life should understand not to be selfish, not just for self-attainment. They should cultivate a just and fair mind early on. This is fundamental.
