As you advance spiritually, it brings a value to everyone, to every human being. Because of the collective unconsciousness, every single person who improves helps to elevate the level of consciousness. And as that elevates, the incidence of war, suffering, ignorance, savaging, and disease diminish. When you advance yourself, you’re helping everybody appreciate that every step forward benefits everyone. One’s spiritual dedication and work is a gift to life and the love of mankind. It’s nice to know that what you think you’re doing only for yourself is actually benefiting everyone around you. To be kind to just one living being benefits everyone.
