“Ask others (including me) to help you, instead of trying to do everything by yourself.”
Message from Green Tara: When you feel resentment in your heart because you’re carrying more than your fair share of the load, you’re doing no favors for anyone, including yourself. You need to ask for help to ensure that you have private time for contemplation and rest. One of the reasons why I’m able to sit so peacefully is that I know the secret of true productivity. It doesn’t come through struggle or strife. Rather, it comes from a clear and focused mind that’s unchallenged by indecisiveness. You see, making decisions is the shortest route to triumphant passages. Once you make up your mind, the rest follows quite naturally. I therefore urge you to sit quietly and follow the footsteps of your mind. Be open to you heart’s meanderings. They will quietly lead you to make your most important decisions, and the rest will fall into place.
Various meanings: Don’t try to be superwoman or superman. Give your children chores. Ask your partner for help. Accept assistance when it’s offered to you. Release guilt or the belief that it’s weak to ask for help. Be a team player.
