is it self serving ?

what are the motivations that guide us,
when we find ourselves doing
 "the RIGHT THING" ?
is our sense of 'moral code' truly lighting our path through the darkness ?
or is there something in it for us ?
and if, in fact, there IS....
does that negate the action ??
in and of itself ?
do we wish to be MARTYRED ?
nailed up on a big, wooden 'star of david'.....
 for all the world to see....
"she is a PRINCESS"....."a saint among women".....
"she embodies the essense of WHO WE ARE".....
or......
is doing a good turn just part and parcel of what makes us 'US' ?
because we are HUMAN.....soft hearted......emotional ??
because in the end of the day,
the 'checks and balances' really have no bearing
on the vignettes that make up our life......
because we are truly 'unattatched' to that which is 'material'.....
even the walls......
WE ARE NOT EVEN ATTATCHED TO THE WALLS......
because home is where 'the heart is'........
and mostly...
because we CAN......
and because, after all is said and done, THEY CAN'T.....
simple mathematics.....
1+1=2....
"step up to the plate, people !!"
DO IT !!!
life is short.....
falling trees are 'bludgeoning' pedestrians .....
right outside your window !!
JUST LIKE THAT !!!!
step up, and take charge !!!
step out of your tiny, little, "comfort zone".....
AND DO THE RIGHT THING....

I AM GODDESS XREBBETZIN
