I don’t claim to be a Sanskrit expert, but there are some Sanskrit words that are close to my heart. Seva is one of them. Seva is a Sanskrit word that describes the act of selfless service. It is a large part of being part of a community.
If you want to serve, make an impact, and spread the yoga love, but time seems to be your pesky nemesis, don't worry, I've got your back! I’m going to explore three ways to serve without feeling like time is slipping through your fingers. You can give back even if time is of the essence. We're about to make a difference together!
1. Spread the Word:
You know that feeling when you stumble upon a life-changing book or an epic movie that sends chills down your spine? Well, sharing the wisdom and inspiration from those sources is a simple yet profound way to serve without spending hours. No, we won't do word-for-word quotes here, but let me give you the gist:
Remember that book you devoured in one sitting? Or the really awesome job you wish you could apply for, but it’s for a college intern? Well, imagine sharing its essence with your fellow yogis during class. You're not only helping them grow, but you're also opening doors to new perspectives and opportunities!
2. Embrace the Power of the Internet:
In this digital age, the online world is our playground for service. Create a blog, launch a podcast, or start an email newsletter. Share your experiences, knowledge, and quirky yoga stories with the world.
By leveraging the power of the internet, you can reach countless people, inspiring them to step onto their mats and embrace their inner zen. Just imagine the ripple effect! Plus, with a little creativity, you can create a challenge that spreads worldwide to get people cleaning up the earth, being intentional about water usage, or making more sustainable choices. The internet has the power to make the whole wide world feel not so large.
3. Team Up:
You're not alone on this journey! It's time to find your tribe and join forces with friends who share your passion for service. Together, you can create workshops, retreats, or online programs that serve a higher purpose.
Collaboration is the name of the game, and when you combine your strengths, ideas, and resources, the impact you can make becomes even more powerful. So, gather your yoga buddies, brainstorm some epic ideas, and get ready to change lives while sipping on green smoothies.
Love, Laughter, and Yoga Magic:
Remember, serving others doesn't have to drain your time or energy. With these three unique ways to serve without spending time, you can make a difference in the world while still finding space to nurture yourself.
So, go forth and spread the love, one asana at a time. Embrace your inner seva superhero and let's make this world a better, more zen place together.
Love you mean it!
Breathe, believe, and conquer!
