"Learn, or teach, or train the body - not only to be good, but be good for something. Let there be known there is a duty to self, and hope in service - for without service to another, one may gain little in this experience in life's forces, for Life itself is a service." [Cayce 53-1]
"Let your heart, your mind, your body, be raised in praise and honor and joy and service to your fellow human beings." [Cayce 688-3]
"(Q) Is my desire to accumulate wealth in order to provide service for humanity an admirable one?
(A) An admirable one; but do not put the cart before the horse! If a person cannot provide service through their income, they will barely keep their body and soul together." [Cayce (2409-1)]
"As there is the desire for more companionship, use it for creative influences; a living thankfulness for the OPPORTUNITIES for a service in this world." [Cayce 2514-3]
". . . as the body may dedicate its life and its abilities to a definite service, to the Creative Forces, or God, there will be healing forces brought to the body.
This requires, then, that the mental attitude be such as to not only proclaim or announce a belief in the divine, and to promise to dedicate self to same, but the entity must consistently live such." Cayce (3121-1)
". . . do not be afraid of giving self in a service - if the ideal is correct. If it is for selfish motives, for aggrandizement, for obtaining a hold to be used in an underhand manner, beware. If it is that the glory of truth may be made manifest, spend it all - whether self, mind, body, or the worldly means - whether in labor or in the coin of the realm." Cayce (1957-1)
(Q) Will the New Year unfold greater opportunities for my professional advancement and my greater service to my fellow man?
(A) "These are part of self's own development and must rise within by taking advantage of those opportunities which are offered from day to day. As has so oft been indicated, and this body will find same within its own experience, it is as we use that in hand that the greater opportunities are given." Cayce (1472-9)
"Put self rather, then, in the hands, in the mind, of the DIVINE from within, and not attempting, not TRYING to be good, to be kind, to be thoughtful - but just BE, and CONSECRATE self to the service of others. This peace, this quietness that will come within self from such, will find a ready answer in the mind, in the heart, in the life, in the expression of those - every one - whom the body contacts." [Cayce 5563-1]
"Service is asked of everyone, rather than sacrifice. In sacrifice there is penance, but grace doth more greatly abound to those who simply extend love to everyone they encounter from day to day." [Cayce 99-8]
