Excellent article. When Remen reminds me of the oneness of everyone and everything, I tend to serve and have gratitude. I wish I could think of a personal story where I was mindful of these distinctions. The fact that I cannot leads me to believe that my everyday experience lacks service, even when I am helpful. The awareness of the distinction between helpfulness and service will help me serve more as well as help me reduce the size of my ego. I have gratitude for receiving this article, and even more gratitude for being able to respond to it. As I now think about it, I have gratitude for each of you being who you are. Thank you for reading this. Warm and kind regards to everyone.
