Emotional Intelligence is the art of communicating your truth in a effective and tactful way. It is also receiving another’s truth without becoming resentful of their awkwardness or style. In a way it listening for the meaning and intention of others not just the words.
Service provides us with a special kind of freedom. We can detach from the consequences of an action, do our best, perform with attention and love and then release the action back to sumashti. Service requires the unfolding of intelligence, skill and fearlessness. It gives us an opportunity to try new projects, or build pathways into talents and understanding ourselves because as the need presents itself we are invited to develop our capacity for love.
