Artful Living – Respect the person for what he is

Life is made up of good and bad all around. It is up to the individual to absorb the good and reject the bad. In the series of Artful Living, I had touched upon some of the aspects which when practiced will make life pleasant. In this march towards a happy living, one of the things which need to be looked into is the philosophy of respecting one and all.

Giving respect does not imply a blind subjugation of oneself. One has to clearly understand the other person by his character and this alone should be the criteria for giving respect or not. Here again, if as per ones evaluation, the character of the other is not good, there should be no show of disrespect, and in such cases the person is best ignored.

All other characteristic like age, status in society, knowledge, wealth, etc, of an individual, must at all times be respected, irrespective of the levels.

    I have neither gone to any of Sr Sri Ravishankar’s lectures, nor I have read any of his. In fact I have not gone to any spiritual or similar sessions. It is just that I am writing what I feel I should be doing to live a good life.

    Thats true that life is made up of good and bad but what if everything is going wrong in life?

    The virtue lies in the struggle, not the prize.

    If everything is going wrong then there must be something wrong with the person himself. A good introspection of the self is necessary.
