On today’s ‘Wednesday Wisdom’ I share about the importance of being of service. I am sure you have all heard about the horrible fires in northern California, especially the Valley Fire which is still not fully contained. The fire went through areas not too far from me and burned a very special place in my heart: Harbin Hot Springs. I have spent many, many wonderful days retreating there. The blessing is that the water is still flowing and it will be rebuilt.
What I really want to share is that there is heartbreak like this all over the world and sometimes we think there is nothing we can do about it. But last week I spent 8 hours in selfless service sorting clothes for fire victims and it felt so good to be of service to others. Not only did it feel good in my mind, my body benefited as well. Lately my back has been hurting and during 8 hours of service I had no pain at all. It is so important to give to others selflessly and to let go of what is in it for us. You know that when you do good things for others the good comes back to you tenfold! So I ask you to look at your community and find out how you can be of service to others – there are plenty of opportunities big and small.
Check out this week’s video blog to learn how important it is to be of service. When I am of service to others – I know I transform myself!
