Giving, Serving Others & Volunteering
Updated: Jun 17, 2019
Hey everyone! Here is the second video I filmed while in Peru. The topic of this video lesson is that of serving others through responsible, mindful giving of your time, resources, funds and so on. As we were there as volunteers working with archaeologists at a 1500 year old, pre-Incan, solid pyramid, the topic of serving others was in my heart and on my mind.
Human beings are meant to be of service to one another. Helping others creates a feeling within us that we can all identify as a warm and wonderful feeling. That feeling is typical of the sensation human beings experience when their heart center is opening. We gave five hours of hard work every day and we didn’t even take the scheduled breaks. We preferred to work right through them to give as much of ourselves as possible. It feels so good to give of ourselves to worthy causes such as this.
I recommend that everyone finds ways to give of themselves in the name of serving others. Mindlessly giving money or gifts to charities is not what I am referring to here. I recommend being very mindful and connected to the ways you give of your time, energy, money and efforts. Make sure that you are providing service that is sustainable and not merely a momentary quick fix. Remember the famous phrase about “giving a man a fish and he eats for a day, but teach him to fish and he eats for a lifetime.” This is the idea behind mindfully serving others.
We were very proud to work hard next to others who were working hard and dedicating their lives to restoring this amazing landmark for the Americas. We hope our efforts impacted the outcome of this project in some small way. The adventure that we had in the process is absolutely priceless. I have made the primary focus on my new life’s work, serving others through sharing my message.
