Many of us on a spiritual path have a great
desire to be of service. There is a deep inner calling to serve.
You know, to help each other and be there for each other. Our
ego tells us that if we do certain things and sacrifice our lives
for some cause that that is service. True service is not
about doing anything. It is Being,
period! To be or not to be, that is the service. Service is Being.
It's not what you do. Now, when you are Being, things are certainly
happening. But this "doing" comes from a totally different
place then we would expect it to come from. It is coming from
Being. It is coming
from the Heart. From
Center of Being within the Heart. Not from a sense of building
up brownie points toward our eventual admittance into heaven.
Nor is it from, "I am doing this service for you."
On the contrary, there is a tremendous sense of gratitude toward
the other for the opportunity to Be-in service. Just by Being
we are serving one another at the highest level.
In Being, the other really ceases to exist.
Even you cease to exist as the doer of the service. Only Being
exists, only God exists.
Only Love exists.
To Be God is service. To have recognition of our Divine
nature and live it constantly is service. To dissolve all separation
is service. To exist as the Oneness is service.
others get the opportunity to experience their greatness as God. That is service.
Now, there really are no others. But you may know what I mean.
I'm talking about those aspects of ourselves that believe we
are cut off from God. In Being, eternity shines brightly as the
never-ending present. Past and future have ceased to exist. Only
this moment is. It is seamless and complete unto itself. In true
service there is no ego. Only Being exists.
