respect leads to caring

respect leads to caring–a quality of impeccability in what we do. respect and faith nourish each other and give birth to many skillful actions. as we foster the quality of respect in our lives, we can also begin to see the world in a different light. the tone of caring that arises from giving respect can transform how we interact with society. we begin to explore the possibilities of service, of taking an active role in seeing what needs doing and lending our energy to those endeavours. compassion motivates us to act, and wisdom ensures the means are effective.
