Motivating Quote of the Day:

“My notion about service is that service is actually that kind of
relationship in which you have a commitment to the person. What I mean, in
fact, is that for me what service is about is being committed to the other
being. To who the other person is. To the degree that you are, in fact,
committed to the other person, you are only as valuable as you can deal with
the other person’s stuff, their evidence, their manifestation, and that’s
what’s service is about. Service is about knowing who the other person is
and being able to tolerate giving space to their garbage. What most people
do is is to give space to people’s quality and deal with their garbage.
Actually, you should do it the other way around. Deal with who they are and
give space to their garbage. Keep interacting with them as if they were God. And every time you get garbage from them, give space to garbage and go back and interact with them as if they were God.”
