A worthy question, which I have been thinking about quite a bit lately, realizing that we serve everyone. To everyone we come in contact with, no matter how briefly, we either do a service or a disservice. The way we look at someone--did we smile or frown; our tone of voice--was it friendly or unfriendly. Did we acknowledge or ignore, were we patient or impatient, tolerant or intolerant. Were we compassionate or did we exhibit a lack of compassion. That brief encounter defines us--it is a small but telling glimpse into who we are.
We have a choice to make a difference one encounter at a time. As each new day dawns, I reverently speak my intentions to be at my personal best for the highest good of all, to listen for the Great Mother's voice, and to contribute to the betterment of my community.
The words to a song from "Rent" invade my mind: " . . . no other road, no other way, no day but today . . ."
For me there is no other road but that which the Goddess has set me on, no other way but Her way, and; truly there is no other day but today!
Who have you served today?
