Purity of heart, purity of intention. This is the goal. Motives other than love and being of service can hold an element that you would understand as manipulation. Understand that such actions may be taken in an effort to protect or help the self, but when there is a bit of a devious—albeit unconscious—element to one’s efforts, the results ultimately do not play out in anyone’s best interest. Aim to help others as you help yourself and you will come to know that always and forever You are so very loved.
