The True Server

I am going to begin a series of articles from Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul in his treatise 'Serving Humanity'. As I said, I am not that religious, but if I can prepare the way for Christ to come back, that would be good for mankind. This Master shows the way. Whether we can do it is up to us.

1. The True Server

The Master looks not at a worker's worldly force or status, not at the numbers of people who are gathered around his personality, but at the motives which prompt his activity and at the effect of his influence upon his fellow men. True service is the outflow of a loving heart and an intelligent mind; it is the result of being in the right place and staying there; it is produced by the inevitable inflow of spiritual force and not by strenuous physical plane activity; it is the effect of a man's being what he truly is, a divine son of God, and not by the studied effect of his words and deeds. A true server gathers around him those whom it is his duty to serve and aid by the force of his life and his spiritualized personality, and not by his claims or loud speaking. In self-forgetfulness he serves; in self-abnegation he walks the earth, and he gives no thought to the magnitude or the reverse of his accomplishment, and has no preconceived ideas as to the his own value of usefulness. He lives, serves, works and influences, asking nothing for the separated self.
