This book can make an extraordinary difference in the way we see one another, ourselves, and the vast amount of suffering in the world. Here is a guide for those who are just beginning to realize that self-fulfillment is possible through service to others. No two people are better qualified to help us along this path than Ram Dass, who has spent more than twenty years teaching and writing on the subject of living consciously, and Mirabai Bush, who succeeded him as chairperson of the Seva Foundation, an international organization devoted to compassionate service. The first part of the book is Ram Dass's spiritual autobiography, in which he reflects on the lessons of his own life and addresses two vital questions: "What in us responds to the needs of others?" and "What can we actually do to alleviate suffering?" Mirabai Bush then counsels readers on how to identify their most useful talents, gives direction for finding opportunities to serve in the community, and offers very practical suggestions on how to get started. What we have to give is who we are. We need to grow in awareness and insight if we wish to become more effective instruments for change. In this book of heartfelt encouragement and advice, Ram Dass and Mirabai Bush demonstrate the interdependence of social and spiritual development, reawakening in us the memory of true citizenship--a vital force in the conscious relief of pain and suffering. As His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, has said, "Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive."
