It’s important that you are connected to your awesomeness predominantly, not just for yourself but also in order to be of value to anyone else you would want to be of value to.
You help others most from your place of thriving, your abundance, your happiness!

“You might think that we are saying: Love only yourself, and not others. Or it might feel to you that we are encouraging an either/or sort of thing, where you take care of you and you don’t take care of them.
Where really what we’re saying is, if you don’t take care of you, you haven’t got anything to take care of them with.
A person can be watching someone who’s in trouble in some way – maybe they’re sick, whatever – and it’s possible for you to empathize so much with their sickness, that you completely disallow your connection to your source, and now all you can do is commiserate with them. You have no strength, nothing to give them.
The analogy that we offer is: two people walking along a mountain path,
a very narrow ledge. Or let’s say there are three of you, and you have need to be steadied.
Maybe you hurt your foot, or maybe you are at a high altitude and you are losing your ability to be stable, and you have two friends with you, and one of them has been commiserating with you, and is limping and is as unsteady as you are. And the other one is sure-footed and strong and steady.
Which one are you glad is there?
In other words, whose arm would you reach out for?
So often our dear friends who care so much, get so involved in what’s wrong, that they lose their connection with source. And then they join together in numbers, thinking that joining together in numbers will give them strength, but a bunch of weak people, even in numbers, aren’t strong, you see.
Get a whole bunch of confused people together and see how much clarity comes out of it.
In other words, you can’t just add one more confused person to the pot and expect to get any clarity. And one standing outside of the confused group
who is clear, is more powerful than a million who are confused.”
