There is a popular saying in life, “Everyone has a price”.
Now, this Self is the most important person in the world. He is far superior to anything in this world and beyond, and especially to any kind of wealth. The Self is Supreme. Therefore, when we forsake respecting the Self, we invariably show disrespect to the God in us, who is the ‘Self’.
So, Self-Respect, is to respect the God in each one of us.
When we do not respect ourselves, others will notice this, especially the manipulative types, and they will surely take advantage of us. This is how the world has been ‘bought’. The ones who desire money so much shall go close to the ones who have it. To the ones who have it, they see an ‘opportunity’ to manipulate someone for his personal gratification. And then, we have not only sold our minds and bodies, but also our soul. Then no matter how much we get, we are still never happy and free.
I knew a man in London who used to preach this line, he believed everyone has a price. Today, sadly, he is no longer in this world, he took his own life. Life was horror for him. Here is an actual story of what happens to people who intend to manipulate people because they have some money.
Does everyone have a price?
Always practice Self-Respect under all circumstances, never sell yourself short – it is horror for both parties.
You are Joy
