In order to concentrate, in order to be able to project our thoughts to other people, we have to be harmonized ourselves. That means we have to know that we are doing right, that we have the right motive for doing it. If we have any doubts at all, if even a tiny part of our conscience is in doubt that we are doing it in order to help the other person, we are not harmonized, we are not acting as a whole. And if there is any division in us we cannot be concentrated and so have no power of projection; our thoughts are not projected, they are just diffused.
When we do something good we should ask ourselves why. When we do something wrong we know it. It is when we do something good that we have to be alert, because we often do what appears to be good through self righteousness or vanity. We can do everything with vanity or without vanity. There can be vanity in our recognition of our obligations to others. Even if we work for money that is not for ourselves but for others, it can be for vanity. Many people with money are not real; they want to make themselves out to be what they are not.
There are many people in the work, but they are invisible. If someone really and truly is in the work he is invisible. We can understand the opposite of vanity if we think about the process of blending tobacco. A blend has a better flavour than any one of its components. Each individual loses its own particular flavour and acquires the better flavour of the whole. If we really understand this we may feel a pang at realizing that our 'I' has to die in order that the greater I, which is included in 'we', may be born.
