Yesterday, I was reminded of the celebration of a great hero Lei Feng. The memory of Lei Feng reminds all of us to serve others with our lives. The act of serving others is the spirit of true harmony and prosperity.
When I was a teenage, my mother told me, “Michael, if you want to be successful in life, spend your life finding out where there are needs and help others. The more you help others fill their needs, the more your own needs will be filled.”
___3_____. I believe that this is the true spirit of what China is about—serving others rather than only serving oneself.
In almost six decades of living, I’ve found that life works this way. I choose to plant seeds everywhere that I seed that there is a need. I help those who need help without the thought of them paying me.
Serving others is a gift. When I give to others, I not only get back far more than what I give, but I get the things that money can’t buy. I give them my actions, my work, my money and my soul. And, the things that money can’t buy are those that truly make life beautiful and amazing.
