GLOBAL VILLAGER 100 – RESPECT
Man aged 48 from Perth, Australia. Christian, literate, smokes, speaks English, heterosexual
A man wanders down the street, muttering and swearing under his breath. He is a rather belligerent man with a tendency to interfere and provoke rather than to let others be. A certain sense of insecurity impels him to leave his mark and make sure that others know who he is. As he walks down the road to work, he regards the down-and-outs with suspicion and dislike, immediately focusing on anyone who seems different’. His attention is caught by a drunk homeless Aborigine on the street corner who looks at him piercingly for a long time. The Australian feels endangered and threatens take the man's name, but he says he has no name or date of birth. Feeling humiliated and insulted, the Australian spits at the Aborigine, calling him a drunken liar, a good-for-nothing who lives off benefits and doesn’t get down to a decent job’s work.
Then the old aboriginal man smiles and tells him that outward appearances and facts are misleading. What matters is respect for all beings. The Australian is suddenly taken aback by these words because he can feel them physically: they send a streak of energy, like a tongue of fire, shooting rapidly down his spine. This is such an astonishing experience that he wanders home in a daze. With the passing of time, and following a period of self-examination, he comes to the understanding that this feeling in his spine is a sign that something is particularly true or relevant. The words of the old Aborigine still ring in his ears. He decides to treat his family and colleagues with more respect and is astonished at the improvement in his relationships. From then on he listens carefully to everyone he meets in the knowledge that all ‘chance’ encounters have a built-in ‘message’ for himself. Out of ‘respect’ for nature, he decides to spend his holidays at an ‘eco-lodge’ in the rain forest. Here he learns about a plant which grows under nutmeg trees and which only flowers one day a year. It is easily missed or overlooked. This reinforces his belief that it is essential be alert, to see the small signs or ‘pointers’ which can create major changes or provide deep insight. While he sits in the forest, filled with wonder at this thought, he is suddenly surprised by a cloud of bats swirling above him. He is impressed by their extra-sensory perceptions, and the way they group together without collision. There is no such thing as a bat that tries to control another bat, or a bat which does not respect another bat. Instead of feeling impelled to make his mark, the Australian covers up his tracks and leaves nature the same way he finds it. Through his contact with Aboriginal guides, he learns to wait and ask, before pushing ahead, and he learns that the old man of his original encounter was not actually staring at him threateningly, but following the aboriginal custom of looking into a person's eyes for a long time to make deep contact with a new soul. The Australian no longer utters torrents of negative words. And if a negative thought arises, he meditates briefly and invites the violet flame from a higher dimension to replace it with positive energy. He is intensely aware of the fact that his choice of words – whether positive or negative – are the source of the positive and negative events which form his reality on a daily basis.
How would it feel to have no name and no date of birth?
What is preventing you from re-inventing yourself?
How often – and how intensively – do you look into other people's eyes?
If you tend to turn away, what fear or emotion lies behind this action?
Do you fully realise the power of every positive and every negative thought?
What if you replaced all your negative thoughts with positive ones?
What if our inner serenity was never affected by outward circumstances?
What if we all realise that all conflict is an expression of lack of love?
How would the world change if everyone heard every ‘message’ intended for them?
