When you are serving, you are doing your soul’s work. When you look at those figures historically that are revered, it is because of the work they have contributed to mankind. Between their guidance, messages of love and compassion, and their service to man they have been revered and some even elevated to a saint status.
Souls such as Buddha, Confucius, Jesus Christ, St. Francis of Assisi, The Dalai Lama, Edgar Cayce, Kahil Gibran, Gandhi and Mother Teresa are held in the deepest places of peoples hearts that have had the good fortune to know of them or even study their work. For it is in their service that their souls are illuminated. It is in their service that they are touching the souls of others. Even one kind or loving thought, gesture, or touch has changed that persons life forever. They are not held in this status because of monies they have earned or their accomplishments in a job where material and ego was served. They are held in such high esteem only because of the essence of who they were. Their intrinsic soul shines through from their ability to show others unconditional love and regard. It is the greatest gifts that can be given from one person to another, from one soul to another.
Each person on earth can serve his fellow man in this same way. Each person can have the same level of esteem given to them by their fellow man as a natural by product of who they are. Let us learn to put our ego aside, and let our authentic self shine through. It is a gift your soul has been waiting for!
How do you allow your true being to shine forth?
