Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Virtually all organizations known to you work largely by means of your greed. They attract you because what they say or do appeals to your greed. This is concealed only by their appearance. If you stop listening to their words and look at the effect, you will soon see it.

Remember that greed includes greed for being not greedy. So, if someone says: "Do not be greedy, be generous", you may inwardly interpret this in such a manner that you will develop a greed for generosity. This, however, remains greed.
