“You can’t get sick enough to make the sick ones well, and you can’t get poor enough to make the poor ones abundant, and you can’t get weak enough to make the weak ones strong, and you can’t dis-empower yourself enough to make the dis-empowered ones feel empowered.” Abraham says that a lot…
We are not pursuing our own dreams at the expense of the Other. At least most of us. In a universe of abundance, there is enough for all of us.
