Respect cannot be earned with or without money.
And it seems that nobody earn true respect from human beings.
Most adorable Buddha, Christ, Muhammad … are even less formally respected than some other idols! In fact, love and respect are profound sentiments in bright hearts of sages to sages. Ceremonies, rituals, formalities … cannot be compared to sincere reverence.
Educated people learn to practice the inner and mutual respect for cooperation in performing servitude to the world for the sake of God. He who seeks for respect from his fellomen may comdemn himself to disregard.
Formalities concerning bowing down before the so-called leaders are becoming more and more ridiculous. Mature human beings today express love, respect, admiration less by words than by inner appreciation.
We are fortunate to enter this new world of high spirituality.
New Addition For This Post
Such were the words uttered by Christ. On account of these words they cavilled at and assailed Him when He said unto them, ‘Verily the Son is in the Father, and the Father is in the Son.’Be thou informed of this, and learn thou the secrets of thy Lord. As for the deniers, they are veiled from God: they see not, they hear not, neither do they understand. ‘Leave them to entertain themselves with their cavillings.’ Abandon them to their wanderings along river beds where no stream flows.
(Abdu’l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha, p. 42)
