In the words of Waith ~
The Guidelines for Growth is the Mission Statement for the Search for Self. Our guidance is about bringing balance to the abstract and concrete. We help you to understand the spiritual precepts of your own path ~ how you can apply those precepts and the tools by which you can apply them ~ and how you can analyze what you have done and determine if the precept from the spiritual component was appropriate for you. This is what our message is about.You CANNOT Respect Others and Love Others to any greater degree than you Respect Self and Love Self. You cannot give to others to any greater degree than what you have within Self.What does it mean to Respect Self ~ what does it mean to Love Self and how are those two different from each other. RESPECT can be considered NON EMOTIONAL. LOVE can be considered EMOTIONAL.Love, as defined on the earth plane, is very emotional.Love tempers respect. The respect, in some cases, can be very, very hard, if you will. When someone says that they Respect Self and they will not allow such and such a behavior by others, because after all, they respect themselves, that can be looked at as almost jaded, as you might call it on the plane.It is the love of Self that brings in the tempering ~ it softens for there is, then, the love of others.
