I have learned over the years that the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others and the joy is manifolds.
From the Tao: The way is a limitless vessel; Used by the self, it is not filled by the world; it cannot be cut, knotted, dimmed or stilled; Its depths are hidden, ubiquitous and eternal; I don’t know where it comes from; it comes from nature.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
