thinking of enslaving the other person.

Before you can celebrate your life, you must Honor it.
And, before you can feel unity with,
and Honor toward, Spirit and all creation,
you must Honor yourself to feel worthy of that unity.

merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.

Your job application, your book proposal,
