There is no respect for others without humility in one’s self. Henri Frederic Amiel
I’m not concerned with your liking or disliking me… All I ask is that you respect me as a human being. Jackie Robinson
A person’s a person, no matter how small. Dr. Seuss
“ You don’t have to like me, but you have to respect me.” This is what I used to tell my children, my husband. People can love us all day but if unless respect is included then the love falls in a lump at our feet like a clump of old dried clay left out in Father Sol the Sun too long. Tennessee has red clay, the hard stuff, that digging around in the garden is tough. Jerking this stuff out in huge clumps, left by the side to dry, this is how rocks are formed. Then the hard rocks are even harder to dig around, get over, grow the beautiful garden we would love to see. We can do this in our lives. Seeing others with a negative eye, thoughts of distrust, bitterness, respect gone out the window, for their own ideas, thoughts, timing, plans are different than ours, we build the rocks, we build the walls, that later are hard to get over, to get through. Hand in hand, respect of his/her spiritual walk, love grows much stronger. We learn, we teach how we expect to be respected, how we expect to be loved through mistakes, through trial, through error, so when the harsh times come, we will find our dreams. The dreams spirit gives us are there to grow, to expand. We move toward each one with trial, with error, so that we can see that the way to our dreams will come, perhaps in a way different that we “see”. Listen, respect the words of others. Our dreams come in little pieces of heart, little pieces of souls, little pieces of one step at a time along the way. Respect when we have run our lives in a ditch, for another to pull the answers quickly, we have to respect the ideas, the thoughts given. We obviously have goofed it up, so listen, learn, respect.
Animal totems: Ant: Sister Ant just walked across my computer. Freaking a bit, I looked to see, but she was a lone ant who must have lost her way. I gathered her on a paper and set her outside, then pulled the sofa out to see. Nope, nothing else there so she is my messenger for the day. Her totem came carry up to 10 times her own weight, for other around her. She is a hard worker, reminding us with her medicine to continue on even with rocks in the way, to carry the weight , the responsibilities given us.
Lady Moon is the New Moon tonight in Cancer. She is dark with no illumination. This moon is the time when the door between the Spiritual world and this plane opens wide. The first House of Self is in cancer as well. Remember to be courageous but nurturing, as today is a day to be fought well with love. Tulips are quite beautiful. Keep yellow tulips around to bring the sunshine into our hearts.
I am here my usual hours today. I look forward to sharing with respect each person that comes into our lives. May the fairies dance around each of us today.
