Remind yourself that you’re never alone
Your self respect will stay intact as long as you know that it’s impossible for you to be alone. You have a “senior partner” who will never abandon you and who will be stuck with you even in moments which you have seemingly deserted your Source. If you feel that if the universal mind has enough respect to allow you to come here and to work through you and to protect you in time when you strayed onto dangerous nonspiritual turf, then this partnership deserves your reciprocal respect.
Respect Your Body
You’ve been provided with a perfect body to house your inner invisible being for a few brief moments in eternity. Regardless of its size, shape, colour, or any imagined infirmities, it’s a perfect creation for the purpose that you were intended here for. You don’t need to work at getting healthy; health is something you already have if you don’t disturb it. You may have disturbed your healthy body by overfeeding it, under exercising it, and overstimulating it with toxins or drugs that make it sick, fatigued, jumpy, anxious, depressed, bloated, ornery, or an endless list of maladies. You can begin the fulfilment of this intention to live a life of self respect by honouring the temple that houses you. You know what to do. You don’t need another diet, workout manual, or personal trainer. Go within, listen to your body, and treat it with all of the dignity and love that your self respect demands.
