Paradigm Shift – Service & Love

by Jason on September 13, 2010

Do you ever feel like your whole world has just been turned upside down? I sure do. And it’s not just from moving halfway around the world to a foreign country and culture.

I’m feeling one of those underlying life transformation thingies happening. I realized earlier this week that a lot of the past decade I’ve been driven primarily by trying to support a family. Well, I realize with all my worries and all my fears that my family has been supported this whole time with relative ease. We have savings in the bank. We’re living halfway around the world living our dreams. And cost of living here (if you want to live like a king) is about $1,500 monthly. So supporting a family is something that just happens, not something I have to struggle or worry about.

Why this matters is because I feel my underlying driving forces in life shifting to where I always wanted them to shift – to love and service for others. While I’m still in the midst of this process and probably forever will be, I feel myself experiencing a lot of juice when it comes to what I can do for others now.

I’ve just noticed that for most people, including myself, that motivations often are not entirely pure, to put it nicely. I’ve noticed most people are motivated by security, money, approval, achievement, fear, worry, scarcity and many other things that have nothing to do with loving and serving others. When was the last time you went to work purely out of love and service to humanity?

I think it’s funny how being in this new environment is causing me to have new revelations that I might not have had. Glory be to Taiwan and all that she if offering to me.
