How to be Selfless with people and at the same time unbounded? When we are Selfless & Sattwic, people start expecting more from us and making us bound with them. This is true with friends, relatives and so on. How to proceed an unattached life when we are Selfless? Being with Sattiwic quality, how can we avoid others from spoiling our inner peace by binding us into their commitments? Should we escape from them or Still we must be sattwic & selfless and go by their requirements? I am confused..Please advise what's the balance...whom to help and whom not to help..and how to behave with people...
Thank you very much..
Your advise is always appreciated...
You said, 'Being with Sattiwic quality, how can we avoid others from spoiling our inner peace by binding us into their commitments?'
A true sattwic person's inner peace cannot be spoilt. He/She would know that those trying to take advantage are ignorant. One should commit to what one can within his/her limits, otherwise just say 'no'. There is no requirement that a sattwic person should overlook the needs of his family to be helpful to others. That would not be 'dharma'. You can overlook only your own personal needs. With best regards,
