What I sense of these 2 groups, is a hidden agenda. Even though I find a lot of things of good knowledge about the Earths past and humanities past as a whole in the law of one , the spiritual agenda does not ring true to me. As one is on the path of service to others....does one really worry about their own progress of self?

If STO is so good for the spirit why is slavery universally regarded as bad? Surely it's a question of balance.

STO isnt a complete sacrificial thing. We are to love ourselves and others equally. Its about progression and love, and equality and graduating to levels that benefit all. There are many here to help others who have already passed these tests, willing to get trapped again for a while just to help get loved ones out. Its about everyone's happiness including self.
For those who come in to serve others, they don't come in forever in a perpetual sacrifice because their families would be very unhappy, and then the team would be rescuing them. People get spelled off, and given lots of good long breaks. People take turns, they even retire and new ones come in. There are many helping from Beyond, not in the trenches as well, and they're all individuals. They never lose self.
Self is important too, and happiness. Others equally, and their happiness. But to be completely unbalanced would harm self and would be a poor model to others as well.
