The word respect will be defined
and explained more clearly. This teaching will explain what
Elders are and how they are placed in Society by the Creator
This is a spiritual writing and is meant to be read a
minimum of four times. This is only a partial teaching of
the wisdom of Respect.
Respect is taking into account what effect any thought, word
and deed will have on life before you move to take action or
open your mouth to express your thoughts. respect is taking
into consideration whether your decisions to act would be
beneficial or detrimental, to all forms of life. Respecting
all life shows you love and care, for life. Love is
respecting All Spirits in the Universe, and understanding
you are related to All Life in oneness.
Respect is consensus. Consensus is not a political process
or a game wherein you get to hold up your hand, until you
have been coerced to agree with others, through a form of
philosophical persuasion, or by simply being out-waited, or
having your arm get tired, forcing you into compromising
your convictions, by being forced to agree to things you
know in your heart are wrong. Consensus is showing you
respect life and that you will take into account, the
effects your decisions and actions will have on every form
of life. Accept only good thoughts, words, and deeds, which
will bring forth and generate a life of beauty and love.
Respect is accepting the order of life, knowing there will
always be Greater Spirits than yourself to guide and protect
you, throughout all of your lifetimes. It is the Creator who
is the Source of all knowledge and the Source of all life
and the Center of the Universe. You are merely a Spirit who
emanates from the thoughts of the Creator God. knowing from
whom you are descended, holding this in your mind and heart
makes you humble, not the bowing and scraping or the wearing
of rags that most believe defines humility. Humility is a
form of respect and a sign of great intelligence, for
everyone can see that the Universe does not revolve around
them. To be humble, is to accept humility.
To be Human you must
accept humanity. You are one of a kind, this is your kind
and you are one of them. Humanity is the acceptance your
spirit emanates from the Sol/Soul of the Creator. The
Creator is a being of Light and you are a being of light.
The Creator lives forever, you live forever. The Creator is
perfect, and you made in his image, is perfect, for no other
kind of spirit emanates from a perfect being except a
perfect spirit. saying "I am only human" is an excuse to do
wrong and a denial that you are descended from the soul of
the Creator God.
Respecting yourself is accepting who you are. You are
related to all the Spirits in the Universe, whether they be
as numerous and small as blades of grass or as singular in
oneness as the Sky. You are related to all of these. They
are "All your/ my Relations." What you do to one, you do to
yourself and all of mankind. Like a seed you were given the
potential and the power to generate life, through God. For
from one seed, a tree will grow, which will grow into a
forest and if allowed to grow uninterrupted would blanket
the earth in trees, providing small worlds for life, likened
unto the Universe.
A Mouse knows the Order of the Universe because his World is
likened unto the Universe. Mice are equal in importance in
their world as Mankind is, in their World.. At this time
they are more than equal to Man in this respect, for they
live in harmony with all Creation, unlike Mankind who goes
against Creation, destroying all life for the making of
material possessions and for the maintenance of their own
personal empires. The seed, tree and forestation of Earth
provide life for living Beings and all of these Beings are
beneficial to Mankind.
You are a Spirit that emanates from the Creator and you are
born through earth, your first and true Mother. You are a
Spirit flowing through a body. You are some One, not some
Body. If you want to meet Somebody, go to the morgue and you
will meet some Body there. With the breath of life, you
become some One, one spirit that flows through a body, here
on earth to learn how to love and grow greater, in the
greater ‘Body of oneness’. Your spirit is born only once,
for like your Father, the Great Spirit, you live forever,
flowing through many bodies throughout your many lifetimes.
Spirits regenerate every seven years, never becoming older,
making them forever young.
There are no old spirits, only spirits that pre-date other
spirits. The closer your spirit was born to the beginning of
Creation, pre-dating all other spirits that came into
existence at a later time, would make you the Elder of a
Tribe upon your return. the Creator is the only one that
makes you who you are, an Elder or pre-dating Spirit.
All Elder Spirits returning to this world are reborn in the
physical bodies of babies and when they are recognized, are
to be respected and treated as the Elder Spirits that they
are. These small ones are very powerful beings, as they are
pre-dating spirits. having to enter this world in the same
way as other spirits, flowing through a new body, doesn't
change the fact that they pre-date others. Do not get their
appearance or size fool you.
Through example, an Elder and Great Spirit, the Skunk,
reminds you to see beyond the obvious. For every time you
encounter the Skunk, in his smallness, he quietly demands
your respect and if you think you are more powerful, try to
bully or harm him. when he sprays you, you will walk around
alone for quite awhile, contemplating his lesson, marked by
his ‘teaching of respect’. Having demonstrated your lack of
respect to all others, marking you for all to smell, this
great spirit shows that he was even given the power to
banish you from your own people. The Skunk will force you to
take the time away from your kind, to rethink your actions
and correct your way, before your actions are copied by
others, multiplying becoming a greater wrong.
Having been an
effective teacher, you will give the small one and his
relatives a wide berth on your next encounter. The skunks
reputation as a great teacher rides before him on the wind,
saving many in the family of Man, from this up close lesson
on respect. The skunk wears the colors of his conviction,
black and white, much like robes of office for all to see.
Black is the color one wears when requesting respect, when
one asks to be taken seriously and white is the color of
spirituality, showing the pureness of purpose. This great
spirit, the skunk, faithfully teaches all others a lesson of
respect, fulfilling their purpose given to them by the
Elder Spirits are the Leaders and the Spiritual Mothers and
Fathers of their Tribe and are far wiser than any Younger
Spirits, for they have gained knowledge from living many
more lifetimes. Younger Spirits in older bodies are not the
Elders of the Tribes of mankind. You are not the Body.
Bodies are merely the vessels through which your spirits
flow. Elders are called Grand Mothers and Grand Fathers. The
word grand means great, not old or grey. It is the title
given to a pre-dating Spirit who has generated many
offspring, through whom their spirit flows. this is what an
Elder Spirit is. They are not elected but elevated by the
This does not take away from the need to respect our
physical Elders, as they too are deserving of our respect,
for their experience in this lifetime. Having fulfilled
their obligation of supplying you and your spiritual
relations with bodies to flow through, it is your duty to
respectfully listen to all they are to teach you. Therefore
they are to be listened to with respect, treated with
kindness and honored as your spiritual guides on Earth. Your
Mother represents the Earth and your Father represents the
Sun, as your physical family is based on the order of the
Universe. Whatever you do to the Lesser Order in the
universe, you do to the Greater Order of the Universe. You
are to honor and respect your physical Mothers and Fathers.
Do this willingly and out of love for one and other. This
will make your Earthly family strong in oneness.
You were born once as a Spirit at the beginning of time, and
before you were ever born as a human being, you were many
other beings first. You were supplied with a different
bodily form in each lifetime. In this way the Creator taught
you how to live in harmony with one and other and all life.
Whatever beings you were, you still are. If you were an Ant
in a past lifetime, your spirit still flows through an Ant
in this lifetime. You are descended from many spirits. They
form your spirit system. Some peoples still have records of
the major spirits they are descended from, for they were
recorded on their family shields, crests, flags, heraldry,
totems, etc. You must always remember that you live forever,
for in remembering this, you are motivated to cherish all
life, for you return continually to share in life with all
others. What you teach your Children becomes the World you
Should you disrespect the life of a lesser being and harm
them physically, know that you may be harming yourself or
someone dear to you. You are a spirit that lives forever,
for you exist continually throughout all time, on every
level of the Universe that you have ever existed on.
Whatever existed, still exists because if it didn't you
would not be here now. destroy one level of the Universe
closer to the beginning of time and you will destroy all
levels of life that were generated from that level in time.
you are related to every living thing. Do not kill Lessor
Beings indiscriminately. We are all related through the
Oneness of the Universe. Care for all of Our Relations!
Listen respectfully to your teachers in life, speak
respectfully of life, act respectfully toward all living
things. know that you have the power to cause the future of
every living thing, and it would be wise to make your
decisions based on the respect for all life. respect all
Life, for You are Life. Those who do not respect life do not
reserve to share in life. You are the Children of God and
the Reasons for Creation. Life Should Respect Life. Listen
with respect, speak with respect, act with respect, for
respect creates harmony and causes closeness amongst you.
When you respect one and other, you produce harmony, which
shows caring, becoming love, growing greater to oneness. In
Oneness, we will sing the Song of the Universe, "One Heart,
One Mind, One Soul" and share in Peace and Heaven on Earth.
