One cannot adequately quantify human capital or worth. If one has to create a business case for the need to treat others with honor, respect and dignity, there is no need for the discussion. If we truly believe in the connection of humanity (that we are all one or all come from the same source), then we understand that the "golden rule" is a spiritual law, not a suggestion. If we are all one, then when we treat another, we are treating ourselves, despite the illusion of separation. What we put out there comes back to us because, in truth, it never left us!
What matters to you? How is it that you wish to be seen, felt and heard as you walk the earth? Does your philosophy of truth parallel the life that you are actually living? If not, why not? What is it that prevents you from living your highest intention? Are you investing your time, love and energy in the things that count for your heart and soul? Are you conscious of how you treat others (no matter what your opinion of them)? Take today to remain awake. Treat others with the most love, respect and dignity that you can handle. How does it feel to actually treat others as you hope to be treated yourself?
Success or sabotage? Success is measured by what counts for you; what counts is not always measurable in the present; there are times when the return comes in the future and we may not even be present to witness it.
Is this going to be an incredible day? What will make this day "count" for you?
