Session: Selfless service to humanity and its prosperity
To contribute to the betterment of society is one of the most noble actions a human being can engage on. We can all be agents of change, through directing our talents and abilities to the elevation of our communities. Interestingly enough, our talents and abilities can be discovered and improved in the field of service. For example: while volunteering you can learn about mutual support, which plays a huge part in teamwork in your future career.
Many aspects occupy our time - family, education, work, etc.- but we should try to see how all these aspects complement each other; instead of fragmenting our lives, we should try to apply learnings from one aspect to other of them.
When we incorporate selfless service in our life and volunteer our time, knowledge, and energy to causes we believe on, it is easier to see the connection between all the aspects we are part of. We learn to identify things that help us improve, and things that bring us down; and we can also identify these in our communities.
When you volunteer, you can see how much you grow by helping and empowering other people.
We all have a responsibility towards the well-being of humanity; let’s not wait another precious day to dedicate our talents and abilities to make the world a better place!
- Become an agent of change in society, work together to discover and achieve the high purpose of your individual and collective actions.

- There are many different ways to serve. Everyone can serve
