Do not get involved in other people’s lives to the extent that you lose your clarity. When life puts you into a position where you can’t avoid getting involved, then you must get involved. Do not shirk your responsibilities. Act to the best of your abilities.
But, don’t go out looking for involvement. Yes, others are a part of you, and that is great, but others also can make your balance lean away from your inner center. The notion that something “other” that what you already have can be gained by contact with others is the error here. Rest content within yourself and watch the play of life unfold. Be detached. Be free of involvement. Don’t lose your center!
