What about when you are in Service of Others because you believe it will make your god happy... or because you believe it will increase your own good karma... or because it increases your own ego through self-righteousness? I hold to the belief that the intention of an action is just as important as the act itself.
I do not think that 'selfishness' is an illusion. I think that separation and separate selves are illusions.
If All is One and you help another, is it not helping your Self? Service To Others may be selfishness in disguise.
