Facing our face

The fearful self says I hope you fail, because I can hide my failure behind your failure, but if it is only I who is to fail, my failure will be much more visible

If someone were to offer me a million dollars so that I could stop working for a few years and indulge / act out some of my creative fantasies/aspirations, and I had to choose between them giving me that money or giving it to save lives in some distant place like Darfur, I fear I might very well choose the former...they'll die anyway, sooner or later, I'd say, and at least my own life wouldn't have been a waste...isn't this how we mostly are???
