I have been pondering the concept of respect. I hear time and time again how one will respect another only if the respect is reciprocated. On a personal level when words are uttered such as I understand unconditional love is not present.
We seem to be so consumed by the way people respond or react to us. We forget that we are all ‘life unfolding’ at all times. Each of us finding our way and experiencing trials and triumphs as we go. Each of us has the free will to think, believe and choose whatever we want. We are not here to all agree. What one person has come here to grow and evolve through cannot be known nor understood. Honour the journey they are on as when you do you honour your own. Remember we are all a reflection of one another. What we notice in one we carry ourselves. It is in this way we are reminded of the inner healing that requires our attention. It is all a perfect gift if we choose to see it that way.
Honour life in all forms no matter what the expression. Refuse to judge. Refuse to defend. Just notice, be aware, choose what you wish to engage with or simply move along. Always, in love.
