“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Mahatma Gandhi
As we move forward on our life journey, we come to an understanding that to be successful and prosperous in our lives on earth we have to work to provide ourselves, and the ones that we love and care for, with the resources that are necessary for all of our well-being. Many of us focus on the external world and we exhaust our mind and body with trivial thoughts and unnecessary labor that is of little use or value in accomplishing a satisfactory result in providing our basic needs. Many of us spend our entire lives searching for the answers to provide us with these basic needs which fill us with a sense of accomplishment, peace of mind, and happiness. The reason for our frustration and endless toil is that we have not understood the true meaning and application of “service” to all beings.
So let us look at the meaning and application of service. There are four sources of our existence that we can utilize to serve all beings.
Each one of these sources is connected and most services will require us to use all four. The first of these are our thoughts. This first source will enable the other three to function. The quality of our thought will determine the success of the others to provide the required services needed. The second source is our feelings. Our feelings reflect what we are thinking. If we are thinking positive then our feelings will be positive and good. The third source is our words spoken and written. When our thoughts and feelings are all positive, then our words, spoken or written, will be positive. We then have the fourth source which is our deeds, the physical things we do in life.
Those of us that own, businesses we service people through selling, maintaining, building, improving, expanding, consulting, and investing, of ideas money and products. Then there are those of us that work in a carrier or job that provides service to people through selling, maintaining, building, improving, expanding, consulting, investing in ideas, money and products. Also there are those in service of people through spiritual ministering and counseling. All of these ways of service are necessary for us to be successful and happy, but they are only a small part of understanding the true meaning and application of service.
For us to be in service to all beings every minute of every day, keeps us in line to receive inexhaustible possibilities of ideas, opportunities, resources and happiness in all facets of our lives. Service to all beings is service to our selves. What we put out, is what we get back. So if we only put out positive thoughts, then we only receive positive back. This is aligning us with exact universal laws which are in place for the good of all beings. As we serve, we are served. Once we adapt the mind set of serving all beings with positive thoughts, life is easier, more productive, and we are able to know the outcome of all circumstances, success will flow to us effortlessly. The people, opportunities, and resources come to us as we need them. We will awaken to the fact that we are the masters of our life and our success. The rectification of our thoughts every day is a very important goal to work for.
When we reach a point that all of our thoughts are all positive and creative, we will soon realize that the circumstances, events, environments, and people that come into our lives will be in line with our needs that bring success and happiness; this allows us to live the fullest and most productive life that is imaginable. When our thoughts are perfected, the universal laws serve us. Hardships disappear and opportunities come to us, our passions of life are fulfilled. It is like the whole world is working for us providing us everything, almost without effort! At the point our thoughts are all creative and positive our personnel goals have been fulfilled, personnel relationships will expand. Our health is perfected. We will be prosperous in our finances, our spiritual aspirations and abilities become unlimited and inexhaustible.

As President of this great organization, I had the opportunity to interact with active members of the organization. Lateef was a member that participated in many of the professional development workshops and always willing to assist and lead different activities. Lateef was a member that you can count on to make a difference and always be counted on for community service activities. It was a pleasure to have Lateef as an active member of the Urban League family.”

“I had the pleasure of getting acquainted with Mr. Warnick while attending Savannah State University. We were both members of the Navy ROTC Unit. I had the opportunity to being exposed to his great leadership, integrity & administrative ability.”

“Lateef is a pioneer and his work embodies the core of Jesuit/Ignatian spirituality: “Finding God in All Things.” While many of us will compartmentalize our professional and personal lives, Lateef is working to integrate supporting both individuals and groups to integrate every aspect of their lives so that each person is a channel for the divine.”

“Lateef possesses a phenomenal intellect that has served him well in all endeavors.”
Capt Godfrey WeekesLand Attack Dept Officer
“I’ve known Lateef since we were students at Savannah State University. He and I served as midshipmen at the Universities’ Naval ROTC unit, where he served as a constant motivator for me and the other student leaders. Occasionally, Lateef would also tutor me on especially difficult mathematics concepts. Through his selfless dedication to me and the other NROTC midshipmen, Lateef displayed his caring leadership, attention to detail, tireless work ethic and dependability. Lateef is a real team player, leader and mentor. He would make an excellent member of any leadership team.”

His mind moves quickly and thinks of important solutions that will not only get the task done earlier but done in an innovative manner. Hire him today for any consulting projects in editorial, social media, or even engineering needs–he is well versed in many backgrounds!”
Tim KaviFreelance Writer
“Lateef Warnick promotes openness, diversity and tolerance, but more importantly the appreciation of good qualities in others. Paradoxical as it may sound, I think Lateef has managed to combine and connect his business and financial skills, and to some extent, his military training to create something much bigger, but also much more fundamental – a spiritual grounding! Lateef as a result of this spiritual wellness through his Concept YOUtopia & 1 S.O.U.L forum, encourages others to share their spiritual experiences, beliefs and insights thus promoting openness and diversity.”
“Lateef is an enthusiastic, friendly and qualified person whose energy is infectious. He knows what he wants and is willing to achieve that goal. He has a background of hard work and training and his ambition and discipline will not only achieve what he seeks but will help everyone he works with. He is destined for great things.”
Dr Derek LamarDirector

“As a Christian, I’m a practitioner of Indian yoga and Buddhist mindfulness meditation. In addition, I’ve spent many years observing and participating in the ceremonies of the Ojibwe Uti and Lakota tribes. I’m also a lifelong student of comparative religion and philosophy. This gives me a good background to evaluate Lateef’s knowledge of spiritual disciplines like Yoga. He has a good overall knowledge of spiritual practices, metaphysics, new thought and mysticism. I believe his spiritual background and knowledge, as well as his previous Navy and business backgrounds, give him much insight and expertise to be the CEO of his current spiritual social network.”
