I really can’t say enough about service. And I feel often the word service is very loaded- implying hierarchy. I'm calling for a "rebranding" of service as a guiding principle and a way of being. 

Sometimes we think this has to be a huge, sweeping, bold thing– skywriter territory– but really, service begins when you pause, take a deep breath, and look for the common threads between self and other. There is such a need for more of this, and a lot of future anguish might not happen if folks regularly practice presence and deep listening. As Patanjali's Yoga Sutra 2:16 states, heyam dukham anagatam: The suffering that has not yet come can be avoided.

“Service to others is the rent you pay
for your room here on Earth.”
