It is the inner joy, the love that you radiate that is important. Mere sentiment and sympathy are no use; they must be regulated by intelligence. Shower cheer on the sad; soothe those that have lost the way; close your eye to the faults of others, but keep them open to discover your own. All these are hard jobs. Practice alone can make you perfect - practice, not only service, but also meditation on the Divine. Japa and dhyana will render you more and more efficient in the field of service.
