Serving vs Fixing or Helping

A fixer has the illusion of being causal

A server knows s/he is being used in service

Of something greater; Essentially unknown.

We fix something specific.

We serve always the something: Wholeness and the mystery of life.

Fixing and helping are the work of the ego.

Serving is the work of the soul.

When you help, you see life as weak.

When you fix you see life as broken,

When you serve you see life as whole.

Fixing and helping may cure.

Service heals.

When I help, I feel satisfaction.

When I serve, I feel gratitude.

Fixing is a form of judgment.

Serving is a form of connection.
