#30 – You can’t evolve without serving

SFS 30 You can't evolve without serving

In The Nine Freedoms we learn that being spiritual is about putting the wisdom of oneness into practice, or in other words: helping the whole, rather than just ourselves, to evolve towards God-realization.

A key element of service is motive – the reason why we do what we do.

In this week’s episode: How important is our motive in spiritual work? What can we do to guard ourselves against the wrong motive? Should we wait until we’re Enlightened before we serve?


Join international bestselling author Richard Lawrence to discover the wisdom of The Nine Freedoms and what you can do to apply it in your quest to change the world and open the door of enlightenment. Richard has appeared on hundreds of radio shows around the world and is the author of 11 books including Contacts With The Gods From Space, and Realize Your Inner Potential, both of which he co-authored with Master of Yoga Dr. George King – his spiritual master.

    Thank you for these 15 minutes excerpts; are like food to the spirit. I like what Rev. Lawrence said about not waiting to serve; and how the purity of motive develops as you serve. Thank you both. Great show.

      Thanks, Monique! I thought that was a great takeaway too. As Dr. King once said, “Go towards God NOW. Remember – even a Saint cannot reclaim a wasted minute.” Blessings, Darren

    So we are truly all in this together regardless of where we fall on the evolutionary ladder. That is amazing,motivating, and challenging
