Reputation and Respect

Do Not Seek Reputation, Seek Respect.

In reputation, there is a polarity hidden. Those who seek reputation seek that which is the most acceptable to others. For some, reputation is largely about attaining the status in a society; they seek reputation at any price, which can eventually result in their, not the best, reputation.

In respect, there is no polarity. Respect has a positive interpretation. However, when respect is motivated by a fear, or feeling of duty, such motivation cannot be a true foundation of respect.

One earns respect because of one’s character, knowledge, qualities or abilities, by being considerate, kind and respectful. Respect can be afforded not only to a person, but to an inanimate object, to nature, to any that permeates through physical, mental, and spiritual levels, as well.

One conducts oneself as a respectful person due his ability to recognize the value of the mutual respect for each other. It is an ability of not judging but respecting others’ sacred space and time they have grown and lived in, their achievements, values, their excellence. Respect is about support, instead of tearing down the person. It reinforces self-esteem, good will, and honoring each other.

Start with respecting yourself, as if you do not respect yourself, you cannot truly respect others.

There is an abode, an abode of wisdom,
of calm, peace and respect for yourself,
an abode that is within.
There is a shrine that you need to discover,

… the above verse is from Illumination: Getting to Know the Invisible You, the 2nd book of the Purposeful Mind series, that is available for purchase at  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0067FEJAO .

“… Strike a balance of being in your centre of power but do not forget others. Be kind to others and they will be kind to you. Be respectful towards others and they will be respectful towards you.

But start with yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be respectful to yourself. All will be returned to you tenfold. Give and you will be given. Ask and you shall receive the answer. Seek and it will be revealed. Such is the law…”

The Path to Wisdom Lies Within the Heart

Wake Up! Your Heart is Calling.This is a continuation of my previous post on the theme of the heart. The following is an excerpt from my Wake Up! Your Heart Is Calling – a brief discussion of our heart’s intelligence, as The Path to Wisdom Lies Within the Heart:

Your heart has its own intelligence. The heart’s intelligence is superior to that of your mind, and it is the heart’s intelligence that you should use. Through your heart’s logic the development of psyche, personality and ego occurs, which leads to the melding of all of them into one being that is led by your Spirit. When this happens you can accomplish from your heart ALL that you believe you can. [Read more…]

Wisdom

butterflies-95358 aToday, I came across a beautiful website and was taken by the wisdom of Native American Indian Traditional Code of Ethics*. I would like to share it with all of you. Below is my shortened adaptation of what I read, as those passages so resonated with me:

– Each morning upon rising, and each evening before sleeping, give thanks for the life within you and for all life; consider your thoughts and actions of the past day and seek for the courage and strength to be a better person.

– Show respect – showing respect is a basic law of life. Treat every person from the tiniest child to the oldest elder with respect at all times.

– Treat the earth and all of her aspects as your Mother. Do no pollute our Mother, rise up with wisdom to defend her.

– Be truthful at all times and under all conditions.

– The hurt of one is the hurt of all, the honour of one is the honour of all.

– All the races in the world are like the different coloured flowers of one meadow. All are children of the Creator.

– Serve others. Happiness comes to those who dedicate their lives to the service of others.

– Observe moderation and balance in all things.

– Know those things that lead to your well-being, and those things that lead to your ruin.

– Listen to and follow the guidance given to your heart. Expect guidance to come in many forms; in prayer, in dreams, in times of quiet solitude, and in the words and deeds of wise elders and friends.

One of the above pearls of wisdom stated: “Treat the earth and all of her aspects as your Mother”.

Our Mother Earth is suffering from mismanagement by humans. Through respecting ourselves and living in balance and harmony, we come to respect all sentient and inanimate beings:

The Earth will not become extinct,
the Earth will not be shaken that badly.
The Earth will be creative and will recover and madly
will fall in love with the people again.

These people will not be of today’s nature.
These people will be a noble breed.
These people will understand nature.
These people will be descendants of today’s humanity.

These people will be of a fine mould,
a mould of godly thoughts and deeds.
These people are here already today—
some of them are ready, some are awakening.

The above is an excerpt from a poem in Evolution, the fourth book of my five books Purposeful Mind series. Visionary verses in Evolution offer you insights into possible future of our bodies, our planet, and more.

Never Say Never – Listen to Your Intuition, to Your Spirit

It’s been a busy first month of 2012. I promised myself that my new books I have been working on for the last two years would be on Kindle by the end of January 2012. I am almost there. I am done with my new series of five poetry books called Purposeful Mind. Three of my new five books are uploaded on Kindle and other two will make it there in a couple of weeks.

I certainly have NOT EVER thought about or planned to become a writer and an author. I was convinced that I was a left-brained, logical, scientifically minded person. But my Spirit knew something I did not. It taught me that we are multifaceted and multidimensional beings. That it does not matter how much resistance we have or how much denial we are in, the real we eventually bursts through. [Read more…]
