Questioner In today's world with communication being what it is, we are aware of literally millions and millions of persons in need and it is difficult to know at what point we jump in because your own resources are not anywhere near what it would take to help every one of them.
The Council: If an individual truly wishes to add to creation, add to the world, improve THE world, then it would be only wise to start first with themselves and their immediate situation. The first essential aspect of each of you is that you must learn to appreciate yourselves, now we are not speaking from an egotistical standpoint. The biggest problem with the world today is that the individuals, the souls, each of you, do not love yourself, you do not respect yourself. If you do not love yourself, you cannot love anything or anyone else, and that is the real problem that lies within creation today. You have lost respect for yourselves. Now, again, we are not talking about an egotistical love. We are talking about a true godly love for yourselves. The opposite would be an egotistical love, and that is the manifestation of the world today. An egotistical love is a destructive love.
Now, back to the point in question. An individual cannot help the world problem; he cannot conquer the problems of the world; but yet he can start a condition of evolvement in the world by simply concentrating on his own immediate situation or position in life. Your world, your country today, seems to want to take care of the problems of the world, the starving of the world. Why can it not concentrate on the starving in their own country first? An individual certainly should have a conscious factor, an awareness factor of the starving and poor of the world. An individual should be aware of that, should have a desire to help, and in some measure should help. But how much more productive and how much more can be accomplished if that individual were to focus in his own life or in the situation that he finds himself, his family, his friends, his neighbors, his community? Take care of your own little world. Help those that need help in your own sphere of existence, and if each person were to do that there would be no need for world-wide help. Do you understand what we are saying?
