How can one understand different grades of STO?

In order to be considered Service-to-Others an entity must think of others 50% of the time, the self 50% of the time. Service-to-Others does not mean being a pushover or a slave to the demands of others. Those who are highly Service-to-Others spend more time thinking about the welfare of others, and take action, often a great sacrifice to themselves.

Had a situation today where I had to make a choice. Someone had come into the office and asked to do some research, they too were doing research for a book, helped them find the information so 'they' could do the work themselves rather than foist it onto someone else. Instead they managed very successfully to get me to do the work. After a fashion I had made some calls and realised after a fashion that I really didn't have time to work on 'their research' and gave them what was needed. I explained to my boss that I really didn't have time to do the research and there wasn't the 'manpower' to do it. I felt bad, really bad about it, but had to say, enough is enough and said no. Reminding myself that there are somethings that we have to say no to. The people had asked in such a way that reminded me of a STS asking someone to do the work for them instead of them doing the work. There aren't many situations like this but it shows how sts work and just slide in that extra work to tire the sto out without them realizing it. hmmm.

ZetaTalk: Spiritual Health
Note: written Aug 15, 1995


Humans regularly go to the dentist, get their shots, work out at the gym, and take their vitamins. This is all to maintain physical health. Humans also go dancing, take up hobbies, tie one on now and then, surround themselves with music, and, especially on the West Coast, go for therapy. This is all for mental health. In the spiritual realm there is worship at church, meditation, and ... not much else. The reason for this is that the spiritual side of man doesn't manifest in the same way physical and mental problems do. Does one ever die of a sick spirit? Is one hospitalized because the spirit is sick? There seems to be no repercussions to neglecting the spirit. Those who attend church regularly fare no better than those who don't, and the benefits of meditation cannot be measured. So, why bother?

Where the spiritual side of man does not demand care and attention, it is the one aspect of a human life that remains after death. What occurs during an incarnation either strengthens or diminishes the spirit, and this sum total forms the basis for the next incarnation. That's why one should bother.

What is spiritual health? As with the human intellect, the spirit grows best when exposed to breadth. Watch the sunset and contemplate the vastness of the Universe rather then crack another beer and stare at the TV. Look with wonder at the variety of human forms and personalities rather than close this out as an intrusion on the status quo. Take responsibility for a small task that improves the life of the least among you, and get hooked on how much better this makes you feel about yourself than if you had spent that bit of time fussing over yourself.

Gerard goes to straight to the point and is correct, as usual.

I find it difficult to have known Planet X is for real since November 2005 when I first saw it. How do you keep the faith for so many years (since 1995)? It must help that it is Zetas right again! every single day now.

The wonderful things about STO, Undecided and STS: There is no faking it and it is not an intellectual decision.

If you cannot decide what you are, think about an incident from the past when you had the opportunity to help another, without hesitation, and without regard to yourself. Then you will know.

An example from my life, about 15 years ago. I was hanging out one afternoon near Dallas with my ex-husband, a couple we knew, and my son and their two kids.

Suddenly there was an explosive sound from in front of the house. I ran out the front door as fast as I could and saw a car had left the road and crashed into a tree. I ran up to the car although I had the momentary thought that it might explode or catch on fire. But then I thought, there could be kids in that car, and I went straight to the driver's side door.

I was the only adult among four who acted this way. Everyone else basically strolled outside and did not show much concern for the people in the car (who were okay in the end), but I could not help myself, I had to do what I knew was right for strangers. It simply did not matter to me who was in the car; all I had to know was human beings needed my help, fast.

Corey you are right on that one. There are many things done in the back ground not fully recognized by most people if at all. Thankless in most cases. work done because it needs to be done, chores done because they need to be done. Most of all, when STO's get together, it's like a well oiled team, all working together towards a common goal. Everyone is encouraged to give their input and no one is left out. However, when an STS is brought into the situation, the dynamics change.

From people I have met that I believe are highly Service to Other, what I can say is that a common mindset is that fact that they are truly 'humble' (and as Karen Lee has pointed out - not ego driven). They never go up to people after volunteering etc... and act like they have 'done everything and helped everyone', they have a glass half full mentality and they are always looking for ways to do more (all the while not looking for a spotlight when doing so).

It's a misunderstanding that those who are undecided can turn STO in a blink of an eye. It doesn't work that way. And has been explained by the Zetas.

Can undecided's become STO in one swift incident of self sacrifice?

There is of course that moment when the threshold of being 50% concerned about the self and 50% concerned about others is passed. But what in actuality occurs is a dithering, where the entity is Service-to-Other, then returns to undecided, then crosses the line to being Service-to-Other again, until the dithering no longer returns to undecided except, perhaps, during a rare moment considered an exception and thus tossed out as an exception. Thus, if you are hoping that many of your friends can suddenly make the leap, this is unlikely, as it is a long process, that dithering.

Absolute unconditional love is also part of being STO. Compassion for their fellows and a deep respect for the land they are on. Not just for oneself but for others around them as well. Sacrificing everything for the sake of the few to help the many as they say - Isn't just for movies, it happens in real life. Focussing on the ones we love is not sacrifice at all, it's a given. loving them unconditionally and helping them is not being a slave, helping others because it makes someone else feel good and makes those who help others feel good is a given. Teaching others such as our kids to have compassion for our fellows as well as for the land, it's a given. Some of us maybe grumpy old farts but, it's the unconditional aspect of love that motivates my family as well as myself and our friends. As difficult as some friends are to find that are STO, we managed to find and recognize each other. The difficult part is recognizing the STS.

I found this quote from Ghandi.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
Mohandas Gandhi

And i also found this on zetatalk.

With regards to the Service to Other orientation, the zetas state that this orientation occurs when an individual serves "others" at least 50% of the time. What is the scope of the term "others"? Does the term "others" refer to service to one or two people at least 50% of the time, or must this service encompass the good of many? I only ask this question because after the shift there will more than likely be many situations in which one must decide to lend aid to dissimilar numbers or people. IE: providing for your wife/husband and family over a larger group.

Most highly Service-to-Other individuals encompass a wide scope, such as the entire globe, or the entire universe in their thinking. The welfare of all, in other words. Those who are not secure enough to encompass this type of thinking shrink that to a smaller group. Some Star Children, who are perforce Service-to-Other in their orientation, cannot encompass a group larger than their extended family, their work environment, their school environment, or their immediate community. They become irritable and depressed when asked to enlarge this scope, and may offer excuses. We have stated that 4th Density is a very long plateau, because there are so many issues to be worked out. One does not have to be perfect to be Service-to-Other, only that the concern for others encompass those immediately outside of the self.

Where ones orientation (STO or STS) is judged by actions, this of course does not apply to those who CANNOT take acti0n. For instance, a person paralyzed by a stroke or palsied from birth who cannot do anything but wish would not be judged for not having taken action. It's what you do with what you have, and with your circumstances, that matter. What if someone had to chose, for instance the German's who stood by and let the Jews be led away, knowing full well where they were going. In some circumstances, where a hand could be extended, a hiding place, that might be an action that could be judged. But what if to help the Jews would mean putting ones family in danger, so that he family AND the Jews would likely be taken to the camps. In that instance, falling silent is not Un-STO.
