Live for Others by Sarah Belle Dougherty

From "Inducing Altered States" by Sarah Belle Dougherty
"The most powerful purifying influence is to live for others, making altruism the basis of life. Hand in hand with this goes finding one's own dharma -- both the overall reason for one's existence and the most immediate duty at any given moment. Performing one's dharma can become a continuous meditation. Our growth as human beings ultimately depends on the unspectacular accomplishment of the tasks of daily life, on controlling and improving our character, and on our relationships with others. Various states of consciousness will appear naturally in time."
