It is necessary therefore to learn to say no to the voice of egoism....
Never quite thought of it like this.
Beautiful and inspiring. Thanks for posting it.
There is much truth in this. The message of AUTHENTIC JOY is fantastic! It is diametrically opposed to our culture’s message of temporary happiness...which is often promoted by convincing us of the need to acquire *things* or to engage in sexual pleasures (outside of marriage).
Sadly, that is indeed how many view Christianity--as a big NO to all the fun, usually sexual, but not only. Many have lost their faith due to this "egoism." It makes me think of that first egoist who uttered non serviam so long ago.
