Deeper into the Pool of Respect…without going in over our heads!

Respect is a mental formation or attitude...

Last week we dipped our toes into the waters of Respect and introduced the fact that Respect plays a foundational role as one of Love’s basic requirements.  Without Respect we can never get to Love, no matter how hard we try!

There are three elements that make up Respect; Awareness, Recognition and Admiration.  Respect can’t manifest in the absence of these. Respect has the unique ability to stand alone within the self…within you, and is only revealed in the impulse to action with the “intention” to please that is so vital to Love.  Yes, it’s possible for you to harbor an interior Respect for your swimming coach and never show it, until you follow your inner impulse to DO something, be it ever so small.  Right here is where Love begins to emanate.  In a very real sense, Respect is like the quality or condition of the soil where Love will grow.

Amazingly, Respect, in and of itself, contains no action. It is a non-active component of Love, a mental formation or attitude toward yourself or toward another person or object. It sets the stage for you (the self) to extend the actions of Love or to withhold them.  The importance and power of Respect is foundational, and can’t be over emphasized.  It is the precedent; it MUST precede the active expression of Love!

Now we know that Awareness, Recognition and Admiration can remain hidden beneath the surface without being expressed. Once Respect is expressed its elements are easily noticed or discerned.  This expression, or the Action itself, is covered under the second Basic Requirement of Love, which is Care.  But before we go there, ponder your new understanding of Respect, and then come on in; the water’s fine!

We invite you to share your insights and comments regarding Love’s first Basic Element, Respect.

    I am so excited about this! Respect is such a familiar term and it makes perfect sense that it would be the fundamental requirement for love. Now my question, we are asked to ‘respect’ the ‘law’. what does that mean to you, and how does one do that if they think the law is wrong?

      Great question SuzyQ. Law falls under the Protection element of Love. A just law is one that is dirived for the purpose of protecting the individual(s). Respect for the Law ultimately leads back to Respect of/for the individual. An unjust law will eventually not be obeyed and will be overturned through due process or in worst case senerio, by revolution.
