Respect does not come to you due to reaching a certain age, nor a certain level of education. It does not come to you for a position your hold, or a family name. It does not come to you becasue of anything except one thing. You earn it.
You earn it by being honest, truthful, transparent, dependable. You earn it by backing friends when they are right and telling them when they are wrong. You earn it by putting you butt on the line for someone, even when , and especially when everyone else deserts them.
You earn it. You don't demand it, you earn it.
I have seen so many people do the Flim Flam Shuffle lately it has actually reached a point of amusement. Some are pretty good at it, they should have put those dancing abilities to work on the Broadway stage in stead of in a mundane life.
The blatant disregard for rules, laws, manners, people's needs, and the respect they have earned is frightening. It is disgraceful. I don't stand back and watch fools make a mess of things for their own enjoyment. It isn't right, and is not acceptable energetically. I don't suffer fools....
I long ago came up with a statement that I think sums it up, the one rule for life that if you follow it, you will always be on the right path.
Do the right things or the right reasons.
How many people do that? Some do. Some think they do. Some know they missed a chance to do so and make it right. All of these are acceptable. Some don't and do not care. Those are the ones that eventually end up suffering because of their lack of respect for people, the environment, the good in the world in any way shape or form.
People need to be the catalyst to that. Karma isn't a strange mysterious force you never see and you wait for. Karma is in actions and words that come from doing the right things for the right reasons.
Never allow anyone to walk all over you , nor anyone else.
Do the right things for the right reasons.
