You are better able to serve others when you look within your heart to find your highest compassion. Behind your actions, cherish one overriding motive: the welfare of others. All actions should proceed from a place of caring and loving. Selfless, compassionate acts lead to your own freedom because you free yourself from the burden of being the center of all actions and events. Let God occupy that space.
OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
