"When we show our respect for other living things, they respond with respect for us." – Arapaho
'Monkey see, monkey do,' came to mind when I read this. Life is intuitive and reactive, treat it wh respect, and you set up life to respond in like.
If you treat someone in a mean or rude fashion, you create an environment that breeds negativity. No matter what, try to treat all life with respect and love.
"When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice." – Cherokee
A life well lived is a beautiful thing to experience and witness. When you arrived in this life you were crying and scared. As you grow shed those fears and nurture your strengths.
If you live in such a way to compassionately touch and positively influence the world, when it is your time to move on, it will cry. The tears will be a mix of sadness, but there will be joyful remembering as well. The emotional reaction of those who knew you is a reliable indicator of your impact.
