Selfless service can reveal to you the identity of humanity, can expand your heart and take you to the door of intuition. Therefore, do unceasing selfless service and thus purify your heart. Have a definite aim. Live with a definite purpose. Realise that life is meant for service and not for self-seeking.
Absence of work or occupation is not rest. Change of work gives rest. A vacant mind is ever distressed. It is the devil's, workshop.
The life of the aspirant is one long series of renunciation and daily sacrifice. He lives to serve others and make them happy. He forgets all about himself. He has no selfishness and ego.
