Ehrlich und herzlich den gelten lassen, der

Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach (1830-1916) österreichische Aphoristikerin,
Gesammelte Schriften, Band 1, Paetel, Berlin, 1893

Respektvolle Gastgeberschaft

Der Mensch gleicht einem Gästehaus. Jeden Tag neue Gesichter.
Augenblicke der Freude, der Niedergeschlagenheit,
der Niedertracht – alles unerwartete Besucher.
Heiße sie willkommen, selbst den puren Ärger, der die Einrichtung
deines Hauses kurz und klein schlägt.
Vielleicht räumt er dich leer für eine neue Freude.

Behandle jeden Gast respektvoll.
Den finsteren Gedanken, die Scham, die Bosheit,
begrüße sie mit einem Lachen an der Tür und bitte sie herein.
Danke jedem für sein Kommen,
denn sie alle haben dir etwas Wichtiges mitzuteilen.

Self-deception and loss of respect

  • Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to such a pass that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love, and in order to occupy and distract himself without love he gives way to passions and coarse pleasures, and sinks to bestiality in his vices, all from continual lying to other men and to himself. Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821-1881) Russian writer of novels, short stories and essays, spoken by character Father Zossima in: The Brothers Karamazov, chapter 7, S. 36, 1879

Quotes by David R. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

 

  • [E]verything is always in the process of creation, it means that everything is an expression of Divinity, or it would not have the capacity to exist at all. The realization that everything which exists reflects the Divinity of Creation is why it is worthy of respect and reverence. This accounts for the reverence for the spirit within all living beings and nature, which is characteristic of many cultures. Dr. David R. Hawkins, The Eye of the I from Which Nothing is Hidden, chapter 1, S. 29, 3rd paragraph, Kindle Locations 374-380; S. 8, revised edition Veritas Publishing, 2002

 

 

  • It is also wise to respect even the ego itself, for without its efforts over great eons of time, one would not have even survived long enough to seek to transcend it. It is a mistake to set up the ego as one’s enemy to be conquered. It is more profitable to merely adopt it as a pet and melt it with compassion. Whatever the ego did in the past was because, like a puppy, it just did not know better. There is no profit in denouncing it as evil. To denounce it is to get stuck in the polarity/duality of good and evil rather than viewing it as a limitation. There is also no profit in personalizing it. Even the ego that ‘should have known better’ actually did not, or it would not have made an error. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Discovery of the Presence of God. Devotional Nonduality, S. 141, 2007

Honor, dignity, sanctity

  • We honor that which we esteem in others as well as ourselves. Out of this, one honors one's own humanity and that of others and ends up honoring all of life in all its expressions by resignation to Divine Will. With surrender of the ego, the spirit becomes aware of the sanctity of existence.
    Out of self-honor arise chilvary (cal. 465) and respect for countrymen as well as heritage and appreciation for the valor of true responsibility. From self-respect arises respect for the rights of others as well as responsibility for personal accountability. Honor is far beyond pride and is, at its very core humble, thankful, and grateful, out of which one senses the divinity of Creation and the knowingness, which is expressed by the exclamation "Gloria In Excelsis Deo." Dr. David R. Hawkins, Reality, Spirituality and Modern Man, S. 224, 2008

 


 

  • Realize the difference between perception and essence.
    Let go of criticalness […] how you perceive something and how you contextualize things […] self-criticalness.
    You have to be willing to be a good neighbor to yourself. Be cordial and polite to yourself!
    Be considerate and decent.
    Take the list of values and apply them to yourself.
    Just be a decent person with yourself. Be good-natured with yourself. Benevolent.
    Out of respect for the gift of life, which is the gift of Divinity, out of respect you now have the responsibility to treat it as a great gift. Think about stewardship. [LoC 415]
    What is your responsibility for the gift of life? Be respectful to yourself.
    Stop blaming yourself for making errors.
    It is impossible to avoid errors. The only people who don’t make errors are people who don’t do anything!
    Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Spiritual Truth vs. Spiritual Fantasy, 3 DVD set, 17. June 2006

Englische Texte – English section on Respect

Tale on respect

A group of monks were living with their master in a Tibetan monastery. Their lives were disciplined and dedicated, and the atmosphere in which they lived harmonious and peaceful. People from villages far and wide flocked to the monastery to bask in the warmth of such a loving spiritual environment.

 

Then one day the master departed his earthly form. At first the monks continued on as they had in the past, but after a time, the discipline and devotion slackened. The number of visitors each day began to drop, and little by little, the monastery fell into a state of disrepair.

 

Soon the monks were bickering among themselves, some pointing fingers of blame, others filled with guilt. The energy within the monastery walls crackled with animosity.

 

Finally, the senior monk could take it no longer. Hearing that a spiritual master lived as a hermit two days walk away, the monk wasted no time in seeking him out. Finding the master in his forest hermitage, the monk told him of the sad state the monastery had fallen into and asked his advice.

 

The master smiled.

"There is one living among you who is the incarnation of God. Because he is being disrespected by those around him, he will not show himself, and the monastery will remain in disrepair."

With those words spoken, the master fell silent and would say no more.


Composite of depictions of the incarnation of God

All the way back to the monastery, the abbot wondered which of his brothers might be the Incarnated One.

 

"Perhaps it is Brother Jaspar who does our cooking,"

the monk said aloud. But then a second later thought,

"No, it can't be him. He is sloppy and ill tempered and the food he prepares is tasteless."

 

"Perhaps our gardener, Brother Timor, is the one,"

he then thought. This consideration, too, was quickly followed by denial.

"Of course not. God is not lazy and would never let weeds take over a lettuce patch the way Brother Timor has."

 

Finally, after dismissing each and every one of his brothers for this fault or that, the senior monk realized there were none left. Knowing it had to be one of the monks because the master had said it was, he worried over it a bit before a new thought dawned.

"Could it be that the Holy One has chosen to display a fault in order to disguise himself? Of course it could! That must be it!"

 

Reaching the monastery, he immediately told his brothers what the master had said and all were just as astonished as he had been to learn the Divine was living among them.

 

Since each knew it was not himself who was God Incarnate, each began to study his brothers carefully, all trying to determine who among them was the Holy One. But all any of them could see were the faults and failings of the others. If God was in their midst, he was doing a fine job of hiding himself. Finding the Incarnated One among such rubble would be difficult, indeed.

 

After much discussion, it was finally decided that they would all make an effort to be kind and loving toward each another, treating all with the respect and honor one would naturally give to the Incarnated One. If God insisted on remaining hidden, then they had no recourse but to treat each monk as if he were the Holy One.

 

Each so concentrated on seeing God in the other that soon their hearts filled with such love for one another the chains of negativity that held them bound fell away. As time passed, they began seeing God not just in each other, but in every one and everything. Days were spent in joyful reverence, rejoicing in His Holy Presence. The monastery radiated this joy like a beacon and soon the villagers returned, streaming through the doors as they had before, seeking to be touched by the love and devotion present there.

 

It was some time later that the senior monk decided to pay the master another visit to thank him for the secret he had revealed.

 

"Did you discover the identity of the Incarnated One?"

the master asked.

"We did,"

the senior monk replied.

"We found him residing in all of us."

The master smiled.

Breakthrough into the dignity culture / Durchbruch in die Wuerdekultur

In the second part, Jonathan transcends into another society
where all the gulls enjoy flying.
He is only capable of this after practicing hard alone for a long time
(described in the first part).
In this other society,

real respect emerges as a contrast of the coercive force
that was keeping the former "Breakfast Flock" together.
