Questions That Volunteers Hold

Tonight, we held an Awakin Circle of sorts, with about 30 committed volunteers in Bombay.  They are all doing beautiful work, and navigating their own edges.  Our circle of sharing focused on the questions that people were holding.  Like:

Can guilt be a basis for service?

Should I find my purpose or wait till the purpose finds me?

Should I share stories, or practice being anonymous?

How do I know if my act is actually in service?

If I'm helping others all the time, how will I pay my bills?

When people take advantage of you, is it more kind to resist or to let it go?

Is it wrong to want credit for what you have rightfully done?

How can I avoid burnout?

What are the practices for authentic and lasting inner transformation?

Is it worthwhile to analyze our intentions or does that lead to analysis paralysis?

When the problems in the world feel too overwhelming to solve, what should I do?

Who do I have to be that I can listen more deeply to the whispers of nature?

What is the prioritization criteria for figuring out where to offer my service?

Why do I get so attached to the people I serve?

Is it more virtuous to serve your family or to serve others?
One resonant theme centered around the nuances of Awareness, Impact and Transformation

Projects I'm Involved With

"Service doesn't start when you have something to give; it blossoms naturally when you have nothing left to take."

"Real privilege lies in knowing that you have enough."
