What do you serve?

Kristen poses two key questions to self awareness:
  • What are you devoted to?
  • Who do you serve?
I have read that Buddhist Monk's are devoted to easing human suffering and in pursuit of this goal, a good monk will ask himself each morning, "What will I cause today and why will I cause it?"

This is an example of creating clarity and purpose in order to fulfill a mission.  Action is far more likely to occur when you have clear, meaningful goals in mind and a purpose which is personally fulfilling.
You are always serving something whether you admit it or not. Your choices and actions showcase what is important to you. Your choices are influenced by your greatest hopes, goals, and dreams. They are also tempered by your greatest fears. 
You will change over time. You will learn and grow.  Your greatest dreams will change and so will your fears.
Know yourself so you may serve others and in doing so - serve yourself.
