Guiding Thought

Increasing my thoughts of Love and my attitude of service dispels all fear of lack and limitation. As I serve more people with Love, money and wealth flow abundantly to me. I use money and wealth with love and wisdom to create a life I love through my highest vision.


Do you think that an “attitude of service” increases naturally when thoughts of Love are increased? The way the Guiding Thought is written is as though they are separate—that thoughts and attitude must be increased each on their own. I have thoughts; I increase my thoughts of Love. I have an attitude; I focus my attitude more on service.

But is increasing them separately the only way to go about it? If I increase my thoughts of Love, will a “side effect” of that not be having a greater attitude of service?

I can see Love increasing service, but not service increasing Love. It does not follow that increased service increases Love– think of all the people/businesses that increase service for money, without Love, who often act in distinctly unloving ways toward both customers and employees. Think of all the people who serve many with Love, without a thought for money (Amma, Mother Theresa).

The kind of service Love increases can be both the kind of service that you would find in a consumer-capitalist culture, and the kind of service that is more intangible, metaphysical, or mystical—the kind of service provided when people pray, and especially when they pray together; when a healer “loves away” an illness; when a holy-leader (not a charlatan or false profit!) leads a congregation to lift their minds and hearts; when anyone inspires another through kindness, gentleness, or compassion.

When people experience Love, isn’t it a natural outcome to want to share it, to extend it, to be kind to someone? Isn’t sharing Love the greatest service one can give? Isn’t this how we can really know love—when It inspires us to give something of It to the world? And can’t we bring that to the work we do, the actual tangible service we provide through business?

Service without Love is empty; service without Love is blind.

Service with Love is Filled-fullness!
