Respect is not a commodity.
Respect is a way of being.

Respect is in our chest not in our hand.
Respect is for all of life.
Respect is for every species in the world, including all four races.
Respect is for all our relations.

Respect is focusing on and dealing in “issues” and not “personalisms.”
Respect is focusing on “what” is right rather than “who” is right.

Respect means owning our own negativity and not being a “Blame Shifter.”
A “Blame Shifter” is one who projects or shifts his own negativity onto someone else.
This is the process of bigotry, war, and genocide.

Respect is keeping the lines of communication open with those who have a different opinion,
and making a sincere
attempt to let them be heard and understood.

Respect means listening until everyone has been heard and understood, only then is there a possibility for “Balance and Harmony,” the goal of Indian spirituality.

The Indian prayer, “All My Relations” is a prayer of Respect for the Hoop of Life.
Almost everyone believes Respect is a good thing but few people have a clear idea of what Respect means or what Respect looks like.
