Serve others, Find Yourself

soldiers“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.”
~Rabindranath Tagore~

Life is a team sport, a Famliy-style endeavor. Any one that does not see that is missing the point. We were all created to serve each other. Each of us has different skills and abilities that we bring to the table to make the picture complete. Finding real joy entails discovering the gifts you have,; (and you will know them as they are what you do best, and enjoy most), then using them for the common good.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”~Mohandas Gandhi~

Charity and altruisim is the best way to feel the pleasure of service to others, but just doing your job with love, caring for your family, and being corteous to strangers is SERVICE!
THERE IS NO GIVING BACK,,,ONLY DOING YOUR PART, AND WE ALL HAVE ONE!
Everywhere you look in life you will see the parallel:working
sports team, business, puzzle, military, mosiac, tapestry, family, beehive, ant colony, wolf pack, volunteer group, church, ad- infinitumn! Everything that exisits, relys on everything else, and everything has a responsibility to do it’s part!
WHEN YOU FIND YOUR SPOT, YOU’LL KNOW BY THE JOY IT BRINGS YOU!
DO UNTO OTHERS WAS NOT A LABORIOUS COMMAND, BUT THE SECRET TO FINDING BLISS!

(MATT 20:28 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others)

Do not go patting yourself on the back for helping others, as that will take the focus away from the service and onto self- aggrandizement. Use your ability to benefit the common good with humilty andwork2 passion, and joy will be your reward
