Spirit shares gems of wisdom.
Spirit tells me that to live in such a way that brings
a sense of satisfaction and pleasure requires us
to seek to serve others, because in serving others
we also serve ourselves.
Survival of oneself depends upon survival of others
and upon the survival of the environment which
sustains us all.
But, He continues, we cannot care for anyone if we
do not first care for ourselves, because if we have
no love for ourselves then we have no love to share
with anyone or anything else.
It’s as simple as that.
