The next time you are confronted with a condition or circumstance you judge to be problematical, express your immediate gratitude not only for the solution but for the problem itself. By so doing, you instantly change your perspective on it, and your attitude about it.
~Neale Donald Walsch
“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.” ~Dalai Lama
Have a wonderfully, blessed day!
Today, ask yourself and the Universe this question:
“How can I be off service today?”
I always smirked at this sentence, because I did not understand it. Being of service does not mean, giving yourself and all of what you have to benefit others, in an act of self-sacrifice. Being of service is actually bringing and creating value. If you solve a problem, issue, question or can give insight from a different point of view someone might have never seen before, you are being of service. The higher the quality your “being of service” is, the more value you bring to the world and in return you will receive value – may it be through connection, or in best case scenarios, monetary compensation. If you can find a way to make “Being Of Service” your job, combined with your inner most passion, nothing – and I mean nothing – is impossible.
I have to be honest, I had a little hard time with today’s blog prompt, at first
If you could have a guarantee that one, specific person was reading your blog, who would you want that person to be? Why? What do you want to say to them?
One person, seriously? I am not writing this for one person. Ideally I would like this blog to find you in a place where my words can inspire you, and it really does not matter who you are – you are special, you are my readers, you chose to spend some time with me. YOU are the ONE.
Of course validation is wonderful, and validation from experts is even better, but again that means more then one person. Rev. Don Lewis, Crystal Blanton (not related, but appreciated), Kent Heilen are a few of the people whom work within the community of Pagans and I consider them experts.
Still they do not overshadow the importance of the individual reader of a blog, whom through some way found a way in the Universe to connect. Maybe our moment of sharing can mean a moment of inspiration, or a moment that allowed you to reach for a larger goal, or affect you in some other way positively.
Then it was worth spending my time writing this blog. Everything else is just icing on the cake.
