Helping Yourself Spiritually Before Helping Others

In some spiritual traditions it is held that being interested in spirituality and doing the spiritual work for the purpose of self-development is selfish, and should be replaced by the sole purpose of helping others to ascend.

Is balance between good and evil necessary when seeking spiritual awakening?

Lot of books on spirituality these days claim how it is important to maintain the balance between “good“ and “evil“ side on the path to spiritual awakening. Sometimes an author (who may claim to be a guru, a spiritual being, or even a non-physical entity passing on its message) may appear to be knowledgeable and can also use occult/esoteric terminology, and sometimes they may even say something with deeper meaning or something you could find useful. These bits and pieces of usefulness may
