This Zen story is about taking care of yourself first. Zen has a rich tradition of telling stories so that the listener gathers their own understanding and then apply it to their own life.

Self care
By taking care of yourself you also take care of the people around and preventing the pain of them seeing you weak and hurt.

Self-Awareness
Awareness of oneself can extend outward to include those you are interacting with, but focusing on others takes the attention away from the self and can cause you to misstep. If you aren’t ensuring you are in alignment first, how can you help others?

It is important that you are aware of yourself. Do not worry about what others are doing. In that way, you will succeed

I loved this! So many lessons in less than two minutes. I can't even write it all down.

Taking care of yourself first
Similar to putting your own oxygen mask on before trying to help others we need to take care of our own needs ( note, not our wants) before we attempt to provide for others. It may sound selfish to put your needs first but it is the only way to allow us to provide for others in abundance instead of giving them scraps!

Taking care
I enjoyed this story. Taking care of ourselves is key to being able to care for others. It took me a long time to really understand that in my life.
