Serving The Earth
By Joe Dominguez & Vicki Robin
The dictionary definitions of service include "contribution to the welfare of others" and "a helpful act, a good turn." To which we have added:
Service is giving back to Life the gift of life - with interest.
Service is the natural impulse to care for what we recognize is connected to us, for what we see is part of ourselves.
Service is doing whatever is needed and wanted, through our talents and capabilities, to create a healthier planet, to create more of a sense of oneness among people as well as between people and the rest of the living body of earth.
Service is relieving suffering wherever you find it. In broken bodies. In troubled minds. In empty bellies. In empty lives.
Service is love made manifest.
Service is where we come from, as well as what we do. It is right attitude and right action, and both need to be fully engaged for us to be effective. Attitude precedes action, and allows you to see what to do. Attitude is also the first key to going from being a sprinter to being a long-distance runner who can sustain action over the long haul.<1>
