There are many ways to serve others to make them happy. It's considered the highest form of charity. But at the end of the day, whichever way you choose to serve, it all boils down to having integrity in your own space and allowing it to create a positive impact. In this week's episode, Dianne Allen, together with her special guest Jamie Delaluz talks about serving others.
Part One of ‘Serving Others with Jamie Delaluz’
Some people like Jamie Oxendine loves to have gatherings as a way of serving others. You might be one of them. If you are, then you probably put love into the food preparation process. It's an essential part. Food is the ultimate nourishment and everything. For some reason, there's something beyond that in food that lights you up.
“You can serve others through your love for nature and food.” – Jamie Delaluz (03:04-03:19)
Here's a fantastic discovery; you can also grow your food in a very intimate way and can use it as a form of medication. It's packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The cucumber seed goes into the soil; you take care of it each day, the vine wines around drops its flowers, out comes the cucumbers. They're ready to pick.
By growing your food, you'll get peace of mind knowing what you are eating and what has gone into producing them. If you take good care of the whole process, it will be a medicine for you. It is mother nature and we are created to be connected to our source. If you're passionate about growing your food and preparing it to serve others, a lot of families can benefit from it, especially so many children are suffering right now with different autoimmune issues and behavioral challenges.

It's also good to remember that as you serve, you can be that channel for the highest good of others. Serving is an exciting way to address pressing issues like mental health, stress, depression, and different burdens that people have in their life. We all need to come home at the end of the day, be nourished, feel relaxed, and cared for. So, if you have expertise in feeding people, you can use your knowledge in producing plant-based healing food, which is rich in minerals and natural ingredients.
You can combine things like farming, growing food, feeding and catering. Serving others doesn't always need to be the big things. Now, how does this make a massive difference in the lives of others? They can learn to do it for themselves and enjoy the process of growing food, preparing food, knowing the necessary skills around recipes, and developing their intuition. You never know that somewhere along that process, you are serving them in many ways.
“Technology has changed the way people interact.” – Jamie Delaluz (08:33-08:39)
If you're a parent, gardening is something you can enjoy doing with your children. It creates that feeling of connection. In comparison to previous generations, technology has drastically changed the way people communicate with each other around the world. It has revolutionized in many different ways, but many are still yearning for some connection, which means technology somehow has adverse effects on the quality of communication.
On the other hand, face-to-face communication opens up more opportunities for building rapport compare to audio or written communication. Just like with podcast shows, the host gets to interview the guest through video calling platforms, but it still feels better when done in person.
