Maria. You touch on a challenging point here. Of course if we give from the right place we will not become depleted. But then there is the energy that we expend in the giving that we may feel the need to replenish. Also there is the tendency of others to take energy, even without realising it. This is often simply because they need energy and don’t realise it. As I say, give from a full cup, then you will give tirelessly. But there are times when we cannot replenish our cup as fast as we are giving out. Then these are times to find patience and forbearance and wait for the chance to replenish to come. It always does. Karma has a part to play in all of this, as we shall come to see.
