Not being self centered

I was meditating peacefully and heard someone knocking on the door. My immediate reaction was to not answer it but soon decided that I should anwser the door so that the poor guy will not be disappointed. Surely, when I answered the door, the poor guy was very relieved. I think it is a healthy attitute to put other’s interest ahead of my own.It is so tempting to just shut out the world and to sit and meditate for personal bliss but I always remind myself not to be self centered.Master Hua (the founder of DRBA) served as a great model for me. He alone inspired me to take up the spiritual journey and it has been very fruitful. My gratitute to him is beyond words!
