Mindset Of Surviving Or A Mindset Of Serving
We live by the philosophy of Survival of the fittest, which makes life a struggle. Spirituality teaches us that the one who serves is the fittest. We are taught in the world that service to humanity is service to God. We are also taught survival of the fittest. This belief made us compete with people rather than serving them.
1. Our original nature is to be generous. The more we give, the stronger we become. If we believe that only the fittest survive, we go into the taking mode and we develop a sense of competition and desire to overpower others.
2. Our mindset of survival is a barrier to our nature of service. We thought the more we accumulate, the more successful we will be, the more satisfied we will be. We have accumulated a lot physically today, but we feel hollow within, because of the void created by going against our nature of serving.
3. Meditate daily and fill yourself to nurture qualities of sharing, caring and co-operation. You will find ways to serve not just materially, but also emotionally – just with your vibrations of peace, love and joy.
4. Serving does not mean you suppress your aspirations and give away what you have. Set goals, earn money, enjoy comforts and achieve everything you can – without competing. Co-operate and empower people along the way.
