Giving Your Talents In Service

the-daily-q-403


InQuire More – Many wisdom traditions encourage us to step outside our egos and give selflessly back to the world. The sanskrit word “Seva” is a practice of selfless service with gratitude. By developing a spiritual practice of this nature, we can change our hearts, becoming more positive, kind, compassionate, and connected to others.

The many benefits of service are also reflected in the seventh verse from the ancient Chinese philosophical and religious text, the Tao Te Ching: “It is through selfless action that I experience my own fulfillment.”

Where are your talents most needed in the world? Can you give yourself in service without asking for anything in return? How can you help?
