Understanding Respect & Regard

Regard and respect are different, contrary to popular belief. Regard is an external gesture of courtesies and protocols, given for people’s roles and positions. Respect is internal, a feeling and vibration radiated for who the person is. Regard may vary, but respect should be equal for everyone. What are your parameters for respecting people and giving regard to them? How well do you treat someone who is junior to you by age or designation, or has achieved lesser than you? Do you believe regard is the same as respect? Our roles and positions in society are different. We called the roles higher and lower. We also mixed respect and regard.

➤𝐑𝐞𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐚 𝐟𝐞𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐚 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐨𝐧 𝐢𝐬. 𝐑𝐞𝐠𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐢𝐬 𝐚𝐧 𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐠𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞’𝐬 𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬, 𝐫𝐨𝐥𝐞𝐬, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬. We need to extend courtesies and follow protocols externally, according to people's roles and positions. So regard is for people’s role. Respect is for the being, for who we are. Since we are all equally pure, equally beautiful, and equal beings, respect should not vary. Every individual is to be equally and uniformly respected. Radiate nice thoughts, speak well, and behave cordially with people. This is how respect radiates to them. Your regard can vary based on what they have, but your respect for them shouldn’t.

➤𝙍𝙚𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙛𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙧𝙚𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙥𝙨. Give respect for the Being and give regard for their Doing. Extend regard for people’s age, knowledge, achievements, wealth, roles or position. Do not equate regard with respect. Your respect should not change according to people’s roles. There can be differences of opinion but you continue to respect them. Respect yourself and radiate respect to all. Respect every individual for who they are, for their qualities, nature.

➤Your every interaction should begin with a pure vibration to the individual. Before meeting anyone, first create a thought for them as a 𝗕𝗲𝗮𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗳𝘂𝗹 𝗯𝗲𝗶𝗻𝗴, 𝗮 𝗣𝗲𝗮𝗰𝗲𝗳𝘂𝗹 𝘀𝗼𝘂𝗹 and then you talk to them and come into action. Respect everyone by accepting their behavior and not questioning it. Connect to who they are and before connecting to the roles they play, build a foundation of authentic respect. Your vibrations of thoughts, words, and behaviour should be the same for everyone, your respect should be uniform for everyone.
