and here's a way to live -

When you allow yourself to experience that there is enough of what you once thought there was not enough of, extraordinary changes occur in the way you live your life.
When you know that there is enough, you stop competing with others. You stop competing for love, or money, or sex, or power, or whatever it is you felt there was not enough of.
The competition is over.
This alters everything. Now instead of competing with others to get what you want, you begin to give what you want away. Instead of fighting for more love, you begin giving more love away. Instead of struggling for success, you begin making sure that everyone else is successful, instead of grasping for power, you begin empowering others.
Instead of seeking affection, attention, sexual satisfaction, and emotional security, you find yourself being the source of it. Indeed everything you ever wanted, you are now supplying to others. And the wonder of it all is that, as you give, so you receive. You suddenly have more of what ever you are giving away.
The reason for this is clear. It has nothing to do with the fact that what you have done is “morally right” or “spiritually enlightened” or the, ”Will of God.” It has to do with the simple truth: There is no one else in the room.

From "Communion with God" by Neale Donald Walsch
