Text en francais ici.
Part 5 : Reality
4 : what is respect.
Many people confuse admiration with respect….
Respect means to observe yourself when you have contact with someone or something. First you will notice that you are hypocritical or prejudiced. You will also notice that it is impossible to understand others. There is always something that you do not understand. As a result your attitude changes. This is respect.
For exemple, you see a flower. If you think it is a flower, you have no respect for it. If you obeserve yourself, you will see your thoughts have no value and you will start to see the flower more attentively. You will also discover many things that you do not understand. Then respect for the flower is born.
