“The law of the universe works this way: if you want more loving, give away the loving you have. If you want more of anything, share what you have openly. If you share, and deplete yourself – that’s wrong. Take care of yourself first, so that you’re not on welfare, and you don’t become the burden…Wherever you look you will see plenty, of abundance; not necessarily great, great, large abundance, but a form of health, wealth and happiness. But there must be the sharing.”
