The third pillar of living on the spiritual side of success is service
Being of Service is the center of all spiritual traditions of the world.
Being of service at least 3 times a day, doing something for others, a family member, a friend, helping somebody, praying for somebody in need, or even giving a smile.
I think we all know this good feeling when we have been able to help somebody, it is uplifting. Whatever good we do for somebody else we do for ourselves, our minds our hearts open to the spiritual side of success.
Let us be like the extension of God’s hand.
Quotes about being of service
“Our prime purpose in life is to help others” – Dalai Lama
“When you are able to shift your inner awareness to how you can serve others,
and when you make this the central focus of your life, you will then be in a
position to know true miracles in your progress toward prosperity”.
“There is no such thing as a simple act of compassion
or an inconsequential act of service.
Everything we do for another person has infinite consequences”.
Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters
will himself be watered- Proverb
“Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth,
the same shall he receive of the Lord.”
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
What do you think of the spiritual side of success so far?
We connected to the higher power and feel-good energy, we fasted from the hurry and worry and put aside worry about things that might never happen and hurry, which often does not bring anything. We may hurry to get somewhere and may end up at the end of a waiting line for example, or drive fast and end up in front of red light. All this is a kind of fear, if we get aware of it and look at it, make it a guide, all will be easier and we do not lose our good energy.
Being of service and helping others is also something uplifting. If we are in a good mood and in high frequency, all things fall in place. Life will get easier and more pleasant. It needs practice and awareness.
The fourth pillar is an important one, it is Giving.

I love this Erika.
We all have to be of service to others to be truly fulfilled. If you are not prepared to be of service, you are not going to make it in business or life – that’s my experience.
Thanks for some great insight.

Thank you for your comment
I can comment on the hurry and worry as just yesterday I had a choice to make. We had made a wrong turn and did not know where were going. In the past I used to get all flustered and upset. Yesterday however I just remained calm, knowing we were in city limits and could not get too lost. We also had a good map book with us. I am not a fan of gps. So there I was after having a great afternoon with my wife and we were in a situation that could have ruined the entire day depending on how I reacted. So remaining calm I continued to drive but not fast or reckless. I kept calm in my voice and attitude and within a few minutes and scenic driving we were back on track. This just points to how you wish to be of service to those around you and create a better experience.

Hi Emi ,
if we all would remember this
there would be more happiness in this
world .With a good feeling it is much
easier to do our work and succeed.
How wonderful you collected all those quotes. I particularly like the one from Mahatma GandhiMa “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
We all know the good feeling when we have been able to help somebody. More over our heart opens to spiritual site of success, spiritual power, and uplifting.
Our purpose in life is to help others.

Hi Stella ,
Yes ,I like this quote from Gandhi as well.
It is true that if we are able to be in service
to others it is uplifting and keeps us in high spirit
and we can accomplish more. If everybody would practise
this 3 times a day ,the world would be a better place .
Thank you ,Stella
