“To know God is not the same as to hear about God. The whole world has heard of God, but only a handful of people have truly realized God. ” ~ Luminita D. Saviuc

To love yourself is beautiful. To love others is incredible. But to love God, that is Divine.

8. Selfless Service: Know God Through Selfless Service

“Have the quality of selfless service unaffected by results, similar to that of the sun which serves the world by shining on all of creation, on the grass in the field, on the birds in the air, on the beasts in the forest, on all mankind with its sinner and its saint, its rich and its poor, unconscious of their attitude towards it, then you will win God.”

11. Surrender
