Selfless service… How many of you can say you have ever truly experienced the act of giving with no selfish motive involved?Giving where your image, pocketbook, family, your sense of fulfilling your duty, or even your sense of doing what you think God wants you to do are not being promoted?
How many of you, in all honesty, can say that you know the vast and profound value that comes from authentic and pure selflessness?
I’ll bet it’s not very many of you. Yes, perhaps you have knowledge of it, but knowledge is not experience.
Though, I assure you–contrary to what the fears of the reason of the mind lead you to believe: it is that experience of acting with true abandon of the ego in response to the demands of the external world that brings one to a state of sublimity… serenity.
