Everyone has the same access to Universal Spirit and Energy as you do. You don’t have to sacrifice yourself, your needs or welfare to help them. They don’t need to take what is yours, whether it’s time or resources, to achieve their goal. Nor do you need anything of anyone else’s. So if someone comes to you and wants your help, and says you’re their only hope, remember that there are millions of people in the world available to help. If you don’t help them, they’ll find someone else. And if helping them penalizes you, it’s not going to help either of you. One of life’s lessons is to learn to honor yourself first.
