“Faith is the magnet which draws the confirmation of the Merciful One. Service is the magnet which attracts the heavenly strength.” ~Abdu’l-Baha
Opening up your heart to serve others allows you to experience a greater feeling of gracious thoughtfulness. When you decide to interact with others today through the mindfulness of service, you extend the heart-shake of good will.
Service to and mindfulness about others around you could be as simple as expressing your appreciation to other, sharing your talent for a project or purpose, extending well wishes that contribute to their happiness. Service may also mean that you give a monetary charitable gift or that you may want to accept a larger load of responsibility so that someone else can take a break.
The intrinsic beauty of service is that it helps you expand your feelings of love for others and it allows you to experience a connection that transcends tradition or the bounds of societal norms. Abandon superstition, materialism, selfishness, or the intellect which leads you to ignore opportunities for service. Instead, experience a pure consciousness of love, the alpha of which is service.
“In generosity and helping others, be like a river. In compassion and grace, be like the sun.” ~Melvana Celaeddin-i-Rumi
Magnetize your life today; serve others with a heart of love. Be a river, be a sun.
