What matters more, how I appear, or how I act? What am I doing to serve others, to make someone else happy, to nurture someone else’s growth, to forgive someone who has been unkind to me?  It is like my outer body is a rock being compressed by pain and hard work, and as I forgive people and myself, as I let go of ego, my inner self becomes a diamond.. bright with love and compassion.

Are we spiritual beings having a physical experience, or physical beings having a spiritual experience?  It is up to us, we get to decide. We all serve something, whether we realize it or not. Our actions and where we put our money and time tell the story or what belief system we serve. If we are constantly fighting against aging, we serve physical beauty, if we are always concerned with acquiring, we serve materialism, if we are serving other people and loving other people, we serve love.
