We can. I think, it doesn’t need to be that way. I also think, that serving others is deeply imprinted in all our hearts.

What may need mastering is the attitude to giving. Out of our hearts and minds, leaving out the calculating ego that wants pleasure. Perhaps instead of seeking pleasure whilst serving a desire of the ego, teach the mind to consciously strive to generate the feeling of genuine and sincere gratitude in my heart. Towards the One giving to me, what I can share. And towards the receiver of my service for giving me the opportunity to share/give. Knowing in my mind that it was never meant to be mine but is given for sharing.
