You Are Relaxed When You Are In Service Of Others

Service Of Others

There are days when I feel distracted, and my mind is scattered all over the place. As a result, I struggle to focus or concentrate, feeling overwhelmed.

Looking back, I have noticed a common pattern in all those moments.

There is something about the situation that I am subconsciously worried about from the point of self-interest.  

  • Will the client confirm the order in my favor?
  • How will this new regulation impact my business?
  • Will the person I have made the offer to accept it?
  • Will my friend agree to help me?
  • I don’t know what to do-How do I come out of this issue?

Self-centeredness and self-interest were always the sources of my disturbed mind.

In contrast, an other-centered mind is always relaxed. When I am doing something in service of others – my organization, family, or community – I am relaxed about myself. I can concentrate and focus.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

Mahatma Gandhi
