"When a person’s thought rests entirely upon themselves, they become abnormal and unhappy; but when they give themselves with enthusiasm to any legitimate purpose, losing themselves in the thing they are doing, they become normal and happy. Only as much life enters into us as we can conceive, and we can conceive of life – in the larger sense – only when there is complete abandonment to it. Let the one who is sad, depressed, or unhappy find some altruistic purpose into which they may pour their whole being and they will find a new inflow of life that they have never dreamed.”
Sacred Service, giving of ourselves without any expectation of recognition or getting something in return, is such an important practice also because it quiets the ego and creates a field of oneness and belonging that heals our hearts and minds. Truly, "Service is a way of helping ourselves by helping others."
Sacred Service is a way to serve the community and yourself by connecting with others in a fun and meaningful way. Just as there is a diversity of of people at Bodhi, there are many ways to put your unique skills, talents, and interests to use in a way that will reveal love and celebrate life with the Bodhi community and to the world at large.
