I first hear about service to others (STO) and service to self (STS) in a book called "The Law of One".
This book is also where I first heard about oneness. After reading this book, I didn't really understand it much, but as time progressed and
experiences presented themselves to me, I was able to refer to the book and associate my experiences with what I read, and it all started to make more
sense. There are still some things in that book that I don't have much of an understanding of, but the beauty of it is, that as time progresses,
more and more of it seems factual.
I have been an "observer of oneness" for some time now, and I am still learning more and more about it. My newest realization has to do with
service. I would like to share that with you all.
For me, the misconception was that to serve others meant I had to physically do something for other people. Then, I realized that this was not the
way service to others is done from a standpoint of oneness. From a standpoint of oneness, if you are being served, then you are also serving others.
So the key here is allowing others to serve you as well as serving others yourself.
This means that service to self is largely the action of denying others to serve you, as well as focusing on your own works.
Everything serves and every service is some form of learning experience. So if you want to be of service to others, all you have to do is let others
teach you, and when the time comes teach others. Do not deny the lessons that are presenting themselves to you and do not withhold. Be open. That
is the definition of service in the eyes of oneness.
