Respect Pt. 2
The last piece I wrote was about respect, though it was mostly about what respect is not. I'd like to focus more on what respect is in this piece.
Real respect is sharing Love and Truth freely with everything. It's treating each Human Being like the Divine Being they are. When another speaks to you, do you really listen to what they have to say? Do you treat what they are saying like it's God speaking to you? That's true respect, it's treating all beings equally. It's giving the same Love to each being regardless of their position in the illusionary world. Do you treat the dirty rugged homeless man begging for your change with the same respect as a lovely member of the opposite sex? If you don't, there's some things about respect you still don't understand.
And respect doesn't just stop at your fellow human beings. Real respect is Love for Everything in Creation. Hugged a tree lately? Do you say hello in the morning to the birds as well as your fellow humans? Do the stones, the grass, the dirt, receive you Love as well? Or are they mostly just ignored? The deepest respect possible is Love Unconditional, and does that Love see anybody or anything as less deserving than anything else?
There's another respect that people seem to forget about, and that's self respect. Do you see yourself as Equal to everyone? Do you see yourself as deserving of Love as Everyone Is, as God Is? Do you cling to guilt and fear, that's where disrespect of self lies (in both senses of the word lie). Do you lie to yourself? Do you ignore any part of yourself? Are there any parts of yourself you don't Love? If there are, you don't respect yourself fully. Unconditional Acceptance of the All of Who You Are is Unconditional Love, Unconditional Respect, of Self. Once you find this within, then and only then can you have true respect for everything else. If you can't find respect within, you don't have any real respect to share with others.
