What is Conscious Service?
When Eagle de Botton, of Goodreality.org asked me to respond to this question, I decided to share with you the approach I use in my workshops to facilitate self-discovery.
 
The question really is: What are you here on this earth to give and to do?
 
So, start by asking yourself: “What is my highest vision for my life?” (No holds barred!!) Devote a little time to contemplation. That’s the first step.  Make space for a vision to arise. You may begin to sense a new direction forward, or confirmation of a path you’re already on.
 
And then ask, “What gives me the deepest joy?”  No matter how difficult or challenging your life conditions are, or have been, there is a sliver of joy somewhere in your experience. Focus on it, allow it to grow. It emanates from the part of you that is true, alive and free.
 
Your taking time to consider these questions is, itself, significant. You’re generating a space that’s untouched by your surroundings—a place in which your own self-discovery can flourish.
 
In my work as a pianist and developmental consultant, this is exactly the environment I create for another person through music. Using a unique approach to piano duet improvisation, I make it possible to become freely creative. Sitting side-by-side at the keyboard, fear drops away. Following my simple instructions, a person begins to realize: I cannot fail! 
 
The results are thrilling. Over and over again, I hear people of all ages and backgrounds produce music of inspiring originality—this includes individuals with disabilities such as Down syndrome, autism and blindness. As a person begins to create music that’s unpremeditated and truly beautiful, it leads to a striking recognition: I am ALREADY WHOLE!
 
Here is an example of what can happen when someone is supported in this way through music. By watching this video, I believe you’ll connect with the unlimited potential that lies within you.

So, allow yourself to contemplate the two questions: “What is my highest vision for my life?” and “What gives me deepest joy?”  By considering these, you may very well discover what conscious service means for you and, in the process, begin to sense an extraordinary future ahead!
