When we interact with others in true sincerity, the other person will more often than not come to respect and honor these same values. This can be held true for many interactions that we may not be fully present to. Conversely, holding others in contempt only leads to being held in contempt oneself: one whose life is tainted by feelings of hate toward others will come to be reviled by others. Life is very much like a mirror and it can reflect the beauty or ugliness we project on it. Let us open the path to mutual respect and harmonious coexistence so as to bring an end to the vicious circles of judgement and superficial difference that has long been part of human destiny.
Peace and Love, Jim
