Without the quality of “respect”, a relationship simply can’t thrive.
According to John Kim, respect means no one has power or authority over someone else. It means we don’t have to agree with someone to love them. Respect means giving someone space to have their own opinions and judgments.
It means to not judge, control, coerce. It means to let be and grow.
You opened yourself, you let someone in, you were vulnerable. And this is one of the most powerful and incredible things you can do.
SA EI SAA OLLA LAHUS JÕUST, KES ON SIND LOONUD, kuid Sa võid elada oma elu, olles ta unustanud. Võid elada oma elu, tundes end sügaval südames hüljatuna, väetina ja poolikuna. Olles kaotanud sideme omaenda Armastuse Jõuga . Õnneks loob Elu ise hetki, mil see jõud end Sulle meelde tuletab, hetki, mis kõnelevad Su südamega. Kui Su meeled on avatud, siis õnneks sellest ka piisab. PRAEGU näiteks.

What if the emotions you don’t like — anger, sadness, loneliness, shame — don’t arise because they need to be “healed,” but because they need to be held?
Even wanting to “heal” your pain can be a form of resistance to it painted with a spiritual and well-meaning disguise but nevertheless still in opposition to how you’re feeling.
Even wanting to “fix,” “release,” and “let go” of your pain can be a form of resistance a way of saying “I want to get rid of this! I want to transcend this!”
But even the desire to transcend emotional suffering is a form of resistance that creates more suffering.
Your sadness doesn’t make you “unenlightened” or somehow less evolved.
Your loneliness isn’t here as a punishment or a sign that you’re far away from awakening.
Your fear isn’t a sign that you’re a “failure” or “going nowhere.”
All of these feelings simply want to be seen, heard, acknowledged, and felt. They want to be held in the vast space of your soul and given the space to come and go.
You aren’t responsible for these emotions — it’s not “your fault” that you feel them. They are simply feelings that have arisen within you, but they don’t need to be “yours.”
You don’t have to play the role of “the depressed one” or “the lonely one.”
Once you release your grip you’ll see that you can honor these feelings just as temporary waves of energy that only mean something if *you* give them meaning.
Ahhh, isn’t that nice to know?

Everything that happened, you never saw it coming.
The greatest things in your life, you did not expect
—they simply unfolded.
As you begin to recognise and accept this,
you relax and see that your life is unfolding
inside a greater harmony.
Free will, destiny, all of these things
are only pertaining to your body-mind expression,
not to your real Self, which is beyond all that.
Tony Robbins says only massive, determined actions will stop us from making the same bad decisions that have kept us where we are for so long. What habits are holding you back? What self-limiting beliefs do you hold about yourself?
Starting today, shut down the negative thoughts and focus only on achieving those dreams that you know you have the power to achieve. Use these inspiring quotes as the fuel to propel you forward.
