Who is the center of your universe?

Ancient philosophers used to believe the sun and the stars all revolved around the earth. The earth, to them, was the center of the universe. I wonder how many of us believe we are the center of our universe, where others, family, friends, colleagues and all others are there only for our use and manipulation. Even worse is if others believe this about us. Of course, we all like to believe we are giving and caring, but do our actions truly reflect who we think we are? What we do and how we treat others is the true test of who we are. A simple test will help determine where you stand. Answer this question honestly: When was the last time you helped someone without being asked? If your universe includes this unselfish act on a regular basis then you are on the right track.
