respect yourself


Shakespeare knew as he said “To thine own-self be true and thou canst be false to no man”  And here is Thoreau, “If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life.”  Doing for somebody just for the sake of “doing the right thing”, when your heart isn’t really in it is actually more “me” or egoic than a non-judgmental walking on.  All of us are getting exactly what we want.  Whatever needs a person has will be fulfilled by someone who needs to provide them.  Needy people can always find someone who “needs” to do for them, who “needs” to sacrifice themselves in that particular manner.  The poster is saying, in my not so humble opinion, love yourself; walk a path with heart and that energy will be beneficial to those that are in tune, that are ready for those particular vibrations.  Actions based on “this is the way I’m supposed to be” are not full of loving vibrations and at a deep level not nourishing the planet and beings within the planet.
