"What goes on on the inside will show on the outside."
~Third World ~
The spiritual journey takes us from "What will I get?" to "What can I give?" We may find ourselves suddenly looking for ways to be helpful and kind, avoiding manipulation and criticism. On this path, we have compassion and feel good. This is the way of peace and pleasure. It's not in things, but in us.
In every situation I consider how I can be of service, and adjust my behavior accordingly.
