The Paradox of Selflessness
Summary: Selﬂessness is an interesting word that implicates a disregard of the self; however, most of the time, selflessness feels good and brings about internal relief and peace of mind, which indicates that the self is very vividly involved in the act of selﬂessness. This article reviews the paradox of selﬂessness; subsequently introduces constructive and destructive selfishness, and presents a simple diagram to illustrate the enactment of these two phenomena.
