“The balance of serving and not working yourself to the bone is not always come by in the material world. You are not to erase yourself. You are a person worthy of care. You cannot always put yourself last any more than you can always put yourself first. There is not sacrifice in this interaction that We call service.
It is a tricky balance for you. Until the Great Ones became Great, it was tricky for them. As their awareness expanded, it was no longer tricky. How did they do it? How did they preserve themselves and yet serve Me through others with such aplomb?
The Great Ones ate food and slept at night. They did not give away their lives. How did they serve Me at every moment and yet not abandon themselves? They kept themselves intact. How else could they serve?”
