Based on “Connecting the Dots … with the Respect Principle’s Respect Scale”

Kaitlin Ann Trepanier … The Respect Specialist

April 15, 2016

Raising my Respect Level was a healing process that took years because of the lack of such a device as the Respect Scale and the philosophy presented in Connecting the Dots … with The Respect Principle books, products, and services. The research, analysis, and development of the core concept empowered me to reclaim the parts of me discarded or oppressed due to lack of approval or support, including writing as a profession, to educate, inspire, and entertain through the establishment of my company … a social business venture, a for-profit business, dedicated to meeting the social need of raising individual and humanity’s Respect Level for the benefit of all people.

What Terrorists and Other Bullies Don’t Get … and We Must Help Them With

Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE is the foundational belief that everyone is valuable … every life worthy of respect. Freedom of speech is a part of the idea … we don’t have to like or agree with everyone’s words or even how they express their views … as long as those expressions do not harm … for when they do … one must expect people to rise up against those who harm because you have violated people’s right to believe as they do … just as terrorists and other bullies are entitled to believe as you want … as long as you do not violate anyone’s else right to live peacefully with their beliefs.

We are in this world together … and the sooner we learn to truly get along with each other … then everyone’s basic needs will be able to be met … and then we will truly have the opportunities for our potential to soar and then we will create an amazing world far beyond what the world is now … or has even been … but first we must climb out of the darkness.

Like Charles … the choice is ours … each and everyone of us … to make.

Not a God Believer? Then you definitely want … need … the one non-political … non-religious … non racial …

Not a God Believer? I was not most of my life either. In fact, though I had been raised Catholic, my experiences pushed me so far away from any religion based on God.

At first I turned to the opposing dark side of what I had been taught … out of pain, anger, and frustration.

Eventually though, like many people today, I turned to the new world religion … science. The belief in what can be seen, analyzed, proven or at the very least was logical. I dove so deep into the sciences … the hard applied … and the soft … the theoretical and left spiritual concepts of any construct aside.

Till I didn’t, that is. Curiosity compelled me to reach beyond the sciences to philosophy and the many conjectural new age spirituality trains of thought … which held my interest for some time … but once again I returned to the sciences in the search for one concept that was logical and practical … that was not heavily-laden with specific religious, political, racial, or any prejudicial influence, but was just logical and practical … and therefore a viable idea to create a better world … for everybody.

That is how the more than science, Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE, was developed … as a simple core belief to live by whose positive results are revealed through the observation and analysis of the results … valuing … respecting … each other creates for us individually and collectively.

You don’t have to believe what I now believe about God … that he is indeed good and loves unconditionally … that is your choice; however, I do ask you to consider how you want to be treated in the world? Your loved ones too? Do you want to experience prejudice for your differences? Or do you want to have to hide your differences out of fear of how you or your loved ones will be treated? But what if you or your loved ones can’t hide your differences because they are visible … in your skin color … your income level … social status … physical dif-abilities?

Our world grows smaller every day with technology. In our world driven by the Disrespect Philosophy … no one is valuable unless someone or some group says so … the opposite of the Respect PhilosophyThe RESPECT PRINCIPLE … that all life is valuable, we take chances every day that someone might not like what we say … do … or write on the web … so we can continue to live in fear, hide or just pretend all is okay, hoping terror will never impact us … but that kind of living is not fulfilling and creates a false sense of security … it is a prison that we allow to keep us captive.

The only way we can tear down the prison walls the Disrespect Philosophy throws up is to establish a new foundation … that does not build walls to separate and imprison us … but that is expansive and inclusive enough to support us all as we begin to develop more than the 10% of our brains to create a better world.

Want proof of what’s ruling our lives? Watch the news … and decide which philosophy you want in your and your loved ones lives … and then act … support as best you can the transformation from disrespect to respect … learn how by supporting publication of Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE for school and community study coming soon on the crowdfunding platform, Indiegogo, and/or the workshop production and filming of the school play and community event, CHARLES’CHOICE, based on and inspired by the book and global initiative, Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE now seeking backers on the crowdfunding platform, KICKSTARTER.

Like Charles, make your choice … now. We need you to make the change happen!

Oppression by physical violence … deadly, but spirit oppression by those who do not know they are oppressed …

We know oppression by physical violence is deadly, but often we are not aware of the more life-threatening oppression of people’s spirits by those who are not even aware they are oppressed and, as a result, cast their oppression onto those they are supposed to be “helping.”

Nowhere is this more prevalent than in those who are supposed to lead others into the future … whether the leader is a parent, teacher, principal, counsellor, minister, politician, or mentor of any kind … anyone in a position of authority.

How we can determine if we are being led by an “oppressed” leader is by their words and actions that seek to keep us small and limited based on their oppression … their own experience of being oppressed … being told by words and actions their dreams and goals were not possible and so took the path their own leaders told them to take … and they too became like their leaders … oppressed, bitter and jaded … passing on the legacy of oppression without even knowing it.

Over my lifespan, what was applauded in my life was my conformity to other people’s expectations, regardless of what I wanted. Just because I could do well what other oppressed people valued, did not mean I valued what I could do … and over time, the denial of what I knew I could do, with time, study and experimentation turned me into an oppressed, bitter and jaded person till I became so sick in the spirit I had no desire to live.

Interestingly enough, as my Respect Level has grown, I repeatedly have to stand up against, not the physical oppression, but the constant onslaught of the oppression of the unconscious … a “traditional” mentor who attempted to slay with sarcasm and dismissal that writing a book was not “real work,” which I gather he has never done because he would know how much work it is … an employment “counsellor” who also attempted to dismiss “creativity” as something wives of Bruce Power husbands do because they can afford to create at their leisure and at their husband’s expense.

As I wrote yesterday in, “If I knew then what I know now …” my few previous attempts to reclaim my own identity, gifts, talents and abilities have been met with an unexpected backlash of negativity and what I now recognize as the spirit oppression by those who too were spirit oppressed but still do not know it.

All of which fuels my passion even more to raise both individual and our global Respect Level because we know what to do with the oppressors who use violence physically … we return the same on them, but as of yet, on a mass level, we have not even recognized how we are passing on the oppression by the denial of its existence and its impact on our lives and the lives of those we lead by example.

To “oppress” means to weigh heavily on the mind, spirit or senses; to keep down by the cruel or unjust use of power; tyrannize over.

Being “oppressive” is distressing, not only physically but also mentally.

When any person takes on any role of leadership, guiding and mentoring others, what would serve everyone is simply the recognition of one’s own oppression, overcoming it and helping others to do the same … so they can rise to their potential … not be limited by oppression’s weight that attempts to keep people small, limited and powerless … because keeping people small, limited and powerless is also what drives our economy … keeping our wealth capped by the those who seek their false security by their control by oppression over other people … so they feel more valued … respected.

The problem is oppressors will never ever find the peace and wealth they crave … because peace and wealth are only born of the freedom to be who we really are as unique individuals discovering, developing and delivering to the world what only we have to offer.

Ironically, in the end, the oppressors are the ones who ultimately suffer the most by the legacy of oppression they pass on … for they will never be happy, satisfied, fulfilled … and wealthy in the way that counts most … in their spirit.
