When applied deceitfully, altruism exploits our innate drive and inclination to serve each other as we know, spiritually, that we are one.
We know, on important levels, albeit more unconsciously than not at this point in time, that to serve you is to serve myself. Inequality is not required. A desire to love unconditionally and the insight and awareness to realize personal fulfillment in the engagements is required. However, by questionable definition, this is not altruism, because altruism includes selflessness for the betterment of a third-party group, e.g. governments, a God, etc. at the expense and/or detriment of the servant.
Given that we are one, all acts of love-inspired service and gifting are divinely "selfish" when we realize, feel and embrace that we are fulfilled and made whole (Holy) in the engagements. When I serve you, I serve myself. My/our accountability is to serve from a place of divine inspiration to determine appropriateness.
This context is dogmatic because we misunderstand it. Paradise and Heaven on Earth are attainable always by states of mind or consciousness. Heaven is Heaven. We made up that a lot of hard work and an experience called death are required to be judged worthy and enter Heaven on a different plain of existence. Our oneness includes everything that is, including the Supreme Being.
Heaven is a choice that exists everywhere, always, eternally. Realizing the manifestation for ourselves begins with a word and a declaration to have and experience Heaven now - right here on Earth, while still living. There is no place to go. There is only a way to be to enter Heaven today.
