Love as Community Service with Edward Viljoen

September’s value is Love as Community Service.

Spiritual Living, while focusing on inner personal growth, leads each individual to the realization that they are not only one with the Universal Mind of Creation, but also with everything and everyone. Out of this sense of kinship rises a natural desire to share, help, and nurture, and the understanding that none of us is free if one of us is not free.

Our founder, Ernest Holmes, wrote that we must learn to live by inspiration. That means that we should let the spiritual depths of our being flow through our conversation and into our acts. This month provides the opportunity to explore the balance between inner personal work and contribution to the world through service.

He also wrote that a burden is lifted “when we realize that we do not have to move the world – it is going to move anyway. This realization does not lessen our duty or social obligation. It clarifies it. It enables us to do joyously, and free from morbidity, that which we should do in the social state.”
What do you think your duty or social obligation is?
Warm regards,
Edward Viljoen
Author of Ordinary Goodness, and The Power of Meditation

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
