#2 – Service is greatness

Episode-#2 – The Spiritual Freedom Show

Who would you consider more spiritual? An atheist with the courage to leave home and serve others suffering in terrible poverty, or a devoted yogi secluded in the Himalayas in pursuit of their own enlightenment – and only their own enlightenment?

At one time it was normal for the most committed of spiritual seekers to break away from humanity and pursue their own enlightenment without due regard for the suffering of others. Not that it didn’t take an outstanding person to do this. It did. But was it completely right?

Even today there is still the feeling that you could enlighten yourself first with the intention of serving others later. But given our situation on Earth, can we really afford to wait?

The old approach of spirituality being about yourself, your own enlightenment, and your own communion with God, purely for its own sake – will no longer work. We should all go within at times, but with the overriding motive of using this experience to help us serve others. That’s the big change! That’s the message of Mars Sector 6 in The Third Freedom.

The beauty of it is that when you serve others and spend the time to go within, you can serve far more than ever before – and advance faster too.

In short, spiritual self-development is vital, but service comes first, not second.

Catch the second episode of The Spiritual Freedom Show with Richard Lawrence as he explores the revolutionary message of Mars Sector 6 to help you find a balance between service and self-development in your life.

Don’t miss:

  • An example of enlightenment and service from the life of the Lord Buddha
  • What you can learn from the story of Jetsun Milarepa, an outstanding saddhu from the 11th century
  • Rohan MacLaren’s Moment of Truth: how he went from living as a catwalk model to meditating in a cave in the Himalayas in search of our purpose on Earth
  • A prayer for the animal kingdom written and led by Alyson Lawrence, to help people realize that all life is sacred and that we have a responsibility to demonstrate our love to all aspects of creation

    I can sense people sickness, way ahead of the problem. That’s why I do not use my gift too much, listening to the show today, I’m glad to hear serving other is number one. But when you are futuristic human is very different and the people I want help they think I’m a human with mental problems. But for me is very sad because I know they will have what I did sense, that happens a months later or year later. And I could had help then with food, or mineral or some pharmaceutical meds.the list goes on. But I stop helping people for that reason. So your show from today makes my soul a little sad, and courageous too because you are the first humans who know what is my gift. Maybe one day I will find a place where I can help humans freely, and my gift will be respect and needed. Thank you very much for everything, looking forward to listening on Saturday again. Maria

      Hi Maria, I think you speak for many people who choose to serve quietly instead of openly because of the scorn or ridicule they get otherwise. That said, it’s important to push on no matter what we face. Every thing you do to help others, even if they never know, not only helps them, but also helps the cause of spirituality on Earth. And when you are seen, you never know who you might inspire. You may be interested in Dr. King’s technique of absent healing, which he describes in his book You Too Can Heal: It is a way that we can all help to heal others no matter where they are in the world. It is also just one step further to radiate that same energy to help heal and uplift the world as a whole. With Blessings, Darren
