I’m so glad I didn’t write the article below; otherwise I would’ve sounded too conceited even for my taste.
If only we could see everything that we do as an act of service to others, and ultimately to the Greater Goodness, wouldn’t it make grievances more brief? And our jobs easier? And our joys more precious?
Learn to serve.
Work to serve.
Love to serve.
Then stick to it: Pledge loyalty to whom/what you serve.
Yeah, I know that this sounds like impossible bull because we feel that we are rarely acknowledged for our services. Then again, maybe the amount of thanks receive equals the amount that we give.
Have you thanked your teeth for not falling out overnight? Have you thanked the hands that sewed your clothes? Have you thanked the people who paved the roads and invented matchboxes and laptops?
Maybe we owe the world MORE than it owes us, and we just haven’t caught up with the tab.
Because the planets and the universe do not run on a straight forward line. It’s circular. So it will take its time to complete its cycle. The more valuable the service, is the longer the cycle, and the greater is the satisfaction.
