It simply IS! When you contribute to your fellows’ well-being – when you see the smiles on their faces… When you know another person is breathing easier because of you – when you know you are contributing and you are valuable in someone else’s eyes… Doesn’t this thought make you feel better already? Doesn’t JOY overtake you?
I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.
It is true… True love is when the happiness of another human being makes you feel joy. Love is a binding force. We are all connected in Love and when we do help each other, without expectations of returns, we feel truly happy, and when the Universe actually pays us back our kindness, we are grateful for what we got, because we had no expectations for returns, in the first place. We helped, and we threw this help into the vast sea. The return we got was just a pleasant surprise, on top of the joy we got out of helping someone.
Truth is that only through service, through continuous, ever-increasing contribution, can we achieve joy and security in a dynamic society, which rapidly shifts by the hour and change is the only constant.
When you help others, when you put smiles on their faces, that’s when you give them a peace of God, for God is Love and you will get love in return, magnified.
Because you reap what you saw, magnified. You saw a wind, and you will reap a hurricane. You saw Love, and you will reap Lots of Love! It’s that simple!
Therefore, get out there and help others, and every day you wake up, seek to help some more!
It’s simply good for you. Because it will return magnified at the best possible time and when it does, you will know it! You will know it and that will make you feel even better.
Service is good. Service is joy.
