Caring for self / caring for others

Could you talk a little bit about the balance between self-care and care of others.  What I’m witnessing in my own life is a real lack of balance in caring for myself.

The guide’s response:

Yes,  I’m going to tell you something.  You know a lot of belief systems were laid down a long time ago that you were selfish or bad if you cared for yourself.  That this was somehow a selfish or evil thing to do.  It couldn’t be further from the truth.  Caring for self is caring for God, caring for other beings, caring for all.  If you understand that you are a piece of this amazing energy, wouldn’t you care for yourself?  Of course you would.

It’s not about buying the prettiest pair of shoes or about putting on paint and things.  It’s about knowing–that you are a good being.  It’s about loving yourself, being gentle with yourself, that you’re finding ways of seeing yourself reflected back in your world and it being positive.  That’s where caring about others comes in.

Because oftentimes beings don’t care about themselves, and they feel that if they do then they’re wicked or, I don’t know, they’re going to have hair on their hands or something.  They feel that they must do things for others so that then maybe they can then care about themselves.  Maybe then.  And yes, to a certain degree you do feel good about yourself when you help another person get farther ahead.  But there comes a point when that person is still taking from you and you’re exhausted. And you’re going:  Why don’t they stop and say, “Love Myself”?  Because they do need to love themselves–and you need to love you.

    I feel so lost like i’m having a spiritual crisis,I’ve come to the understanding that me and god are not seperate but I feel the need to find a teacher or certain devotional way of life.I sought out religion and though there are truths in each one there isn’t one I could personally subscribe too.What I do know is underneath this search is a need for love and purpose. I also feel I need guidance that I may find in a deity or teacher.Can you give me some clarity as to what I should do in this situation.Thank you spirit.

    Greetings All, glad that you are back and hope you had a good vacation. A person, V., who I thought was my friend has chosen to distance herself from me. I do not believe I have done anything wrong. She told me why but it just did not make sense to me. I did not let her guilt trip me either. Will you tell me what is going on with this relationship? Why she distanced herself? It is like she has taken the left path and I chose to stay on the right path.

    Also, can you give me guidance on a career area that I can most help people in. Like writing, acting, etc or just doing what I did before or something else. Did I have a mission that involved me being in the public eye that would help others? I want to fulfill my mission(s). Thank you.

Everytime we are together I feel I never good enough I feel she wants to change me .She is telling me the way I am de way I should think the way I should behave and at the same time she is saying ” I want you to be yourself and if I am myself around her and her family ( husband and son and her dog ) she make judgement of what I spoke about long time ago .I know this is not about who is better who is right or who is wrong . First I need to know what I have need to learn form all this ? and second what can I do meaning what I need to do to fix this ?
