Let our Life Be a Poem of Service
When all life becomes a poem of service
In the true, pure, inward sense,
then all our lives grow exceedingly beautiful.
It all unfolds like a beautiful flower.
In most of our spiritual conversations we talk about helping the world.
We should also remember that the world means the unwanted
who knock on our door at an inopportune time;
the people we may dislike for some reason;
those whose appearance or ways may be disagreeable to our tastes;
And those who we might be ashamed of if we were in their company.
To proclaim the truths of the higher life and live them
is the service required of us all.
