Everything has life. Everything is life. Integration with the Whole should be connected to the aspects of Having and Being, which you – inside yourself – should feel. Therefore, it is important that you learn Respect.
(…) Respect should be connected to the Supreme Respect, a Respect to every event, a Respect to every manifestation, a Respect to everything that is having an expression of being.
(…) When you start practicing Respect, something will begin to show in you that is called docility, meekness, and only those who started by learning Respect can be docile and meek. Docility and meekness are close, very close to what is known as Purity.
(…) And you will only be able to feel what docile and meek is the day you start respecting, but a Respect that should be conscious and unconscious to the things that exist, to things that are Life.
(…) To practice Respect towards everything! When I say everything, I mean that a word has life with a small “l” and with a capital “L”, in both aspects of Life that we consider. Therefore, the words that come from a person, and the ones pronounced by you, have Life and therefore, deserve Respect.
(…) Stop by the sea or on a mountain, and gaze. You are silent. Start reflecting on that valley, on that mountain. You will soon be meditating about it. As you contemplate deeply, the silence that is in it appears within you, because that is silent. It only speaks to those who have ears to hear. It only allows to be seen internally by those that have eyes to see, to really see. Therefore, as you reflect, it’s superficial: as you meditate, it deepens.
When you contemplate that object in question, which is Life, it starts showing the silence there is inside it. Then it speaks and lets itself be seen. That means that you’ve begun to feel Respect for that. At that instant you enter a state of secret. Not the secret of not wanting to tell… You can’t allow words to disturb those other words that the silence of that object is saying to you…
(…) A mind, to be able to expand its conscious state, should first learn to respect. From then on, the object in question acquires new proportions, and when the object in question acquires new proportions, it means that you are expanding your consciousness to the point of doing Cosmic Integration.
