“Individuals such as yourself, or anyone in humanity mostly – not all, but mostly – choose not from the perspective of their own self, not to fill their own cups, but rather to fill somebody else’s cup. That’s where most choices come from. You see?
You observe a vacuum, a hole, something missing and you want to fill it. It’s the basic human nature. You see?
But because you’re always outwardly looking, you never observe the hole that’s in you. You observe the holes in others, the vacuums in others. You see?
So of course you’re going to start choosing and making all kinds of choices to try and fill that hole, that vacuum, that void, if you want to see if from that perspective. So if somebody, for example, is needy around you, there’s a void in there. Do you see? That’s where need comes from, is a void. So you’re going to try to choose to fill that void.
But this is where we ourselves have encouraged humanity, all of you, to start looking at yourselves first. As we’ve suggested before, if you see yourself as a cup and that which fills the cup is love, if you’re half-full, the most you can ever do is half-fill another cup. If you’re full, the most you’ll ever do is fill one other cup. We’re suggesting you so fill yourself with love that you overflow and then notice we say let the overflow fill all the other cups around?
We don’t say try to direct it, try to use it to fill another’s void, do we? We say let it. In other words, let nature take its course. Let the natural level fill the others. You see?
And this is the difference between yourselves and everything we’re trying to suggest here…”
