A sister needs help, hers her question:

I am a Sikh and I deeply enjoy doing seva. I feel incomplete without doing seva atleast once a week at the Gurdwara, ( I would do more but I can't drive). Sadly because I can't drive, I can't do any other form of community service besides seva and a couple of people suggested that I get a community service paper signed by the people at our Gurdwara. I don't want to get the paper signed because I feel guilty.( I need it for college ) .... my mom said that it was ok to get it signed because God knows that I did seva out of dedication, love, and faith. Yet, I feel super guilty. Should I get a paper signed stating I did community service..? I am extremely doubtful because I feel wierd and guilty. People who do Seva with me keep telling me how amazed that are with me capable of doing even for a long period of time. I have also made new friends in a way with older men and women who do Seva. I don't want them to think that I only did Seva to complete hours for community service. But then again I have limitations. My mom and I can't drive and my dad is busy at work all day so I have no ride to a medical Center or a place to do actual community service. ...And i think i could just tell them and they would understand, but i would still feel uncomfortable. What would you suggest Guru's gifted Sangat ji?

VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH

Guru Sahib/God know why you did the seva and that is the most important - that you engaged in Nishkam Seva (seva without desire for a returned reward). If the seva you did meets the requirements of community service, have it signed and submitted. It is a formality that would satisfy your school requirements. It is not as if you did the seva knowing that the school would need this paper. Thank the Almighty that arrangements were made for you to be able to do this seva and, in turn, the Almighty arranged that this seve would alleviate further burden of having to make extra arrangements for doing community service. Imagine if you hadn't done seva - what would you do now?
