4 Ways to Serve Others
Transformation Magazine|December 2020
It’s time to open your eyes and heart and see how life calls you into service.

You, as an infinite spiritual/energetic being, chose this earth experience—in part—to serve others. Here are four aspects of doing that.

1. Helping Outwardly: You are a being of light. When you share that light, you are serving others mightily. Native American wisdom has long taught that all people have a “giveaway,” a special gift to impart at the right time.

Serving others benefits both you and the recipient. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” A universal law seems operative here: you get back tenfold what you give out. As the Beatles put it, “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”

Some people feel an inner emptiness due to a lack of purpose or direction in life. A self-centered life devoid of service just doesn’t feel right. The solution for this problem is simple: open your eyes and heart and see how life calls you into service.

All humanity is one big family; we’re all children of God. Serving others helps you see through the illusion of separateness. Helping one another triggers an inner knowing that we’re all in this earthly classroom together.

Matthew 5:14-16 described the wise words attributed to Jesus, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men.” You’re here to let your inner light shine. Make your life a blazing example of how bright and beautiful life can be.

2. Being Adventurous is another reason that you, as a soul, are in this place at this time. One morning years ago, I began rousing from sleep and was aware of a recurrent phrase that had been going through my head. The phrase was: this earth experience is a totally safe and magnificent adventure amidst eternity. That’s become one of my guiding themes.
