Honour thine self within, your spirit first, and when you learn to do this then honour that of others even without them knowing you are doing so, because their spirit will know but their conscious mind may or may not know, how can you recognise the fact, you can soon determine this as they respond to you, you will recognise their frailties of both soul, spirit, and then that which follows, yes their mind, their mind set which can display their frailties more so of their mind because they will react to you in connection with the subject being discussed, but will they react to you favourable or antagonistically.
Will you then react in the same way in your own defence in response to their response, favourably or antagonistically, now you have the free will to respond as your mind wants you to because of the way you are made characteristically.
Difficult is it not to respond with like with like, of course it is and if your adversary responds antagonistically and you do the same in return then you are not honouring your spirit, but neither are they, stalemate or a battle will ensue which could lead to a shouting match or even a war with dyer results.
Let me assist you up the ladder of consequences, firstly you have to make your mind up whether you want to fight/go to war or use your reasoning power, or walk away, yet another difficult choice, but this choice does not only mean you it also means your adversary, so are you going to be a pacifist that will give the impression you are weak and afraid or are you going to retaliate with all of your might which in your mind will have you see yourself as brave, tough, strong or even a killer. And ditto your adversary.
It is wake up time and honour your spirit in the way it makes you a better spiritual person, because it is you who teaches your spirit the right way or the wrong way to go; and the decision is within your soul that will transmit to your spirit then to your conscious mind the right way or the wrong way to go in an instant depending the situation which once the information has been sent to your mind the responsibility rests with you how and when you rest your case as it does with your adversary.
WHO SHALL SAY THIS IS GOBBLEDEGOOK, the choice is yours, but always remember as complicated as this explanation may be to some; or very plain to others; if you go the wrong way you will be doing your spirit a disservice as you teach it and prepare it for its real life transmutation when it leaves the human casket/body for eternity, and it will not thank you at all, and I tell you this, it will make it known to you of your discrepancies as it attempts to elevate itself beyond the earth plain and the astral plain and on into eternity.
