This is true because you and all others are one.
What you do for others therefore you do for you.
What you fail to do for others you fail to do for your. What is good for another is good for you and what is bad for another is bad for you.
This is the most basic truth and this truth you most frequently ignore.
This is what could be addressed in Mental Health Programs
When you are in a relationship with another, that relationship has only one purpose. It exists as a vehicle for you to decide and to declare, to create and to express, to experience and to fulfill your highest notion of Who You Really Are.
If you really are a person who is kind and considerate, caring and sharing, compassionate and loving – then, when you are being these things with others you are giving yourself the grandest experience for which you came into this body.
This is why you took a body. Because only in the physical realm of the relative could you know yourself as these things. In the realm of the absolute you this experience of knowing is impossible.
Creative Body movement helps in expressing this and more!!
Now if Who You Really Are is a being who does not love the Self, and who allows the self to be abused, damaged, and destroyed by others, then you will continue behaviors which allow you to experience that.
Yet if you are a person who is kind and considerate, caring and sharing, compassionate and loving, you will include your self among the people with whom you are being these things.
Indeed you will start with yourself. You will put yourself first in these matters.
