Message for the Day…’ Remember, service is the best cure for egoism, and so you must engage in it to relieve pain and grief to the extent you can. Try to assuage, as far as you can, the distress of others”

Learn a lesson from the tree. When it is heavy with fruits it does not raise its head aloft in pride, it bends low, stoops, as if it does not take any credit for its accomplishment and as if it is helping you to pluck the fruit. Similarly, learn a lesson from the birds. They feed those who cannot fly far. The bird relieves the itch of the buffalo by scratching it with its beak; they help and serve each other, with no thought of reward. How much more alert must you be, than the birds and trees with your superior skills and faculties? Remember, service is the best cure for egoism, and so you must engage in it to relieve pain and grief to the extent you can. Try to assuage, as far as you can, the distress of others; when done sincerely, it is the best spiritual practice for a true spiritual aspirant.
