Helping Another

by stewart

In my own case, I acted as if godliness was next to idleness. Most often I sought time away by myself to contemplate how spiritual I was. I truly believed salvation was to be found, away from others, meditating upon profound thoughts.

And when I traveled a little further, I realized ‘contemplating my navel’ was the antithesis of what the Path was about.  As Saadi taught, so many years ago, “the Path is in human service. It is none other than this.”  This is still true today.

When a hand is extended to help another, the human soul reaches toward the heavens. Service that is free of personal interest is one of the highest forms of human existence.
