September - Activating Service

Share it Please
Marisa Tonello has been a Trustee and Volunteer at the Center for Spiritual Living for ages. Not many folk know that she not only installed our phone and computer network wiring, but she donated a whole bunch of it and the hours to do it. Fortunately for us, Marisa put phone/network jacks into places we swore we would never ever need them.

Seva means selfless services. Marisa must then be a Sevite? Georgett and Jerry invented that word. Someone pointed out to me that there can't ever be such a thing as self-less service because there is only one self and whatever we do we ultimately do for ourselves anyway - even if we call it service-t0-another. Interesting. There is a difference in flavor between service that demands recognition and service that has no demand. Guess which one I like better

Marisa's birthday was on August 21 - you can frequently find here outside the Center cleaning it up.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
