In the search for the nature of man, it seems the first steps follow the path of selflessness.

Being willing to immediately forgive the shortcomings and flaws of others. Without passing judgment or prejudice.

It can be cruel to our sense of justice or what is fair, giving this kind of blank check to humanity. Turning the other cheek.

I see myself being the greatest wall preventing my evolution. My overactive, incensed dedication to a justified world.

The arch nemesis of self entitlement.

So quick to embark a self righteous juggernaut, thus engendering the exact same self entitlement I rail against.

For myself, I find nothing wrong with being guarded :)

too black and white IMHO

the person who said turn the other cheek (Jesus) did plenty of standing up for justice stuff, such as overturning the money tables in the temple, purposely talking to and helping society's 'rejects', kindly correcting the prostitute's and greedy tax collector's ways of life, and defiantly putting the scribes and pharisees right with their pious nonsense.

Selflessness just means forgetting our selfish needs, and putting our energy into something more constructive.
