“Selfless service is an action that purifies selfishness. Usually all of our actions are full of self-interest: we want to be important, we want to be recognized and receive attention, but this is not service. What we can call service is selfless action performed without any expectation of the fruits of our labor. It is a pure act, a sincere giving that is done in silence and with discretion. It is an act made out of kindness and sweetness. It’s a tool used in the process of personal transformation and at the same time is a way to help awaken love.”

Via JMG: RUSSIA: Steve Jobs Memorial Torn Down Because Apple CEO Tim Cook Came Out

Via Business Insider:
Residents of Saint Petersburg have reportedly torn down a giant interactive iPhone memorial that commemorated the death of Apple founder Steve Jobs after the company's current CEO, Tim Cook, came out as gay on Thursday. Business FM Radio reports that the company that originally funded the memorial, ZEFS, decided to tear it down after Cook said he was proud to be gay. The six-foot tall memorial was erected in 2013 to celebrate Steve Jobs' life. It featured a large screen that showcased moments from Jobs' life, as well as scrolling quotations from his speeches and a QR code on the back that would take people who scanned it to a website.
The chairman of the company that installed the memorial said that it might return with a message that instructs Russians not to buy Apple products. (Tipped by JMG reader Alan)
