 Peace-loving people, greetings!  Today we’re talking about SERVICE. While many people are working on the consciousness of attracting and receiving Go(o)d Things, it’s important sometimes to think about how we can serve up Go(o)d Things.  It supports the Law of Circulation if we are giving as well as being open to receiving.  In fact, we can completely let go of programming what we would like to receive.  We can instead simply be open to calls to service, and we can trust the Universe to provide for our needs.

Have you noticed certain forms of SERVICE tugging at your consciousness?  Do you keep hearing about volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, serving meals at St. Vincent de Paul dining rooms, or packing food at your local food bank?  Has that senior widow neighbor of yours been on your mind, perhaps needing rides, handywork, or a listening ear?  Does the botanical garden or science museum need just such professionals as you, to serve on their boards of directors? SERVICE to the world may be an ongoing, long-term project, or it may be a one-shot kindness.

A 70-something insurance broker friend recently was called to start coaching youth baseball.  He didn’t even know he could do that well, and he has made a great difference to the league.  Today, a neighbor texted, just as I was falling asleep for a deeply-needed nap; she had locked herself out of her condo.  This was a clear call to SERVICE,  from the Universe.  I asked my husband if he had his locksmithing equipment with him, I got a large to-go glass of cold water for my neighbor to drink, and off we went to help her get into her condo.  Then she and I searched for the lost keys.

Are you hearing a call?  Then go forth and serve!  You never know what will open up, for them, and for you.  Whatever call you’re hearing, this one’s for you!  Here is AGNT’s contemplation for this day:

DAY 57 Mar. 27: The thought for today is SERVICE.  Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve …  you only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love.”   How can you serve today?

What really gives value to anything is its usefulness in serving others. Our life draws its value not from the money we make, or the prizes we win, or the power we wield over others, but from the service we give every day to add a little bit more to the happiness of our family and our community.  And when you serve, do it without thinking of getting anything in return. Do it as a service to the universe, not reluctantly, but with joy.  By doing so, you are a model to others, and add to a culture of nonviolence.

Today:  I will volunteer a minimum of two hours this week with an organization of my choice and share my commitment with at least one person.  I will do one thing today to help somebody at home, at school or work, or in my community, and then write a paragraph about the experience.
