Commitments to serve

Post by Candlelight.kk on 10th January 2018, 11:29

"Our deepest need is for the joy that comes with ..knowing we are of genuine use to others."
-- Eknath Easwaran


Holding an intention to be in service shapes our overall attitude towards life in many ways. For example, it brings a greater sensitivity and awareness of others, a commitment to harmlessness, a willingness to put others' needs before our own and a desire to be in harmony with all.

An attitude of service also involves a willingness to be served when we truly need support.

"... there is no such thing as just existing. Everything is in service to everything else.
Existence is giving and receiving. A stone gives and receives no less than a saint."
-- Jacob Needleman
