Following the Golden thread

''The golden thread is a symbol of the inspiration, intuition, and guiding light that graces us throughout our lives. It is that which we follow, knowing that it will, in some mysterious way, guide us on our true paths in life. It is most colorfully portrayed in Greek mythology as the magical thread that Ariadne gave to Theseus, assisting him in his heroic journey into and out of the Minotaur's labyrinth. As we travel through literal and figurative labyrinths in our lives, the golden thread may easily go unnoticed, yet when it is recognized and followed, we may find that this archetypal strand of gold connects us to our true selves, to our beloveds, and to that which we discover to be home.''

How am I serving others?

A man went to hell. He saw that all the people were sitting at a long table with forks with very long handles. They were wailing out of hunger, because the handles were too long for them to feed themselves with, even though the food was abundant. He asked, if this is hell what is heaven like?
An image was shown to him.. same table, same long handled utensils.. but everyone was happily eating... because instead of trying to feed themselves, they were feeding the person across the table from them.
