Others and Self, Balance of Good & Harm?

The following video is based on a Buddhist parable that many have heard or read before.(Shared from Paul Chen’s facebook page). He wrote in Chinese “Treat others well first, then you yourself can be well.”

It makes me think about the situation in Europe with migrants and Brexit. It is a delicate balance and a tough decision with no right or wrong answers for sure. Imagine opening our homes to everyone in need. I have tried very hard to help others until I was told to stop by doctors or helping professionals, but I still feel guilty. Read this book.
