Why should we serve? And how should we serve?

Service is an expression of gratitude to society. It should not be done in a spirit of condescension or to achieve some ulterior selfish objective.

It should proceed from an awareness of what you owe to society. You must realise that you are bettering yourself by rendering service.

Your name and fame, all the comforts you enjoy, are derived from society. Sheer gratitude demands that one should serve society which is the source of all benefits enjoyed by man.

What is required for service is not money and materials. A loving heart is the first requisite. All service done without a love-filled heart is as dry as dust.

Fill your hearts with love. When you are immersed in the spirit and filled with love, everything looks good and beautiful.

- Divine Discourse, Nov 21, 1988.

TOL:-

While I keep a diary on the number of times I go to watch the boats, to the driving range, watch a movie, have a massage or the "quality time" I spend with the kids, I have not kept tab on my "acts of kindness or service".

So starting this year, I will also try to keep tab on this activity...

If you are compassionate to the have-not's, you will receive abundance. It's an important concept. Help feed the impoverished.

I think some of you have some airmiles that may be expiring.

If you dont really need the trinket or the trip, maybe you may want to think about donating your airmiles to your favourite charitable organization.

As for me, I find the process of redeeming the airmiles a big hassle, so I have been donating my airmiles to my favourite charitable organization. I'm sure they would be using my airmiles for a good purpose..

Winston da-ge,

Curious - may I ask why you keep a diary on No.of times of certain activities?

I understand the various needs/purposes to keep a diary/journal - but to record number of times of XXX activity.... abit different. ;)

PROMISE, PASSION, PEACE, POWER, PURPOSE, PLAN, PATIENCE, PERSEVERANCE, PROTECTION
DELIGHT, DISCIPLINE, DILIGENT, DETERMINATION, DESIRE
