We all know how great it feels to receive gifts. However, the joy of getting is short-lived. Our lives are richer when we share and that great inner joy comes from helping others to better their lives. Truly giving from the heart fills your life with joy and nourishes your soul. Giving provides an intrinsic reward that’s far more valuable than the gift. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “To find yourself, lose yourself in the service of others.” Giving takes you out of yourself and allows you to expand beyond earthly limitations. True joy lies in the act of giving without the expectation of receiving something in return.
The Seva Café team represents this sentiment as they continue to give and rejoice in the joy that they see in the people that they are serving.
