Thoughts On – Good Manners.

When we encounter good manners, we feel that some deeper part of us has been honoured. Truly, none of us deserve anything less.

Brahma Kumaris Quotes

I don’t expect much from anyone, I try to accommodate and accept. Sometimes I find myself saying, I didn’t expect that. Which is a contradiction! But, may be this is because deep inside of me I expect manners and good behaviour from all?

I find this quote speaking to me in such a deep way. It is simple and true. When we encounter good manners, it is a most royal, elegant and elevated exchange, that the heart is overflowing with joy.

I believe good manners is generally commonplace. But, I guess may be it is not. I feel it is my unsaid expectation, that leads me to say I didn’t expect that!

Good manners, for me is a mark of ones, royalty, divinity, elegance and grace. I feel it is not commonplace as I feel it should be. But that is my learning and my adjustment to make. That is not to say, I didn’t expectations that. But, to observe from a distant and not be affected, like water off a ducks back.

Thank you

  1. Actually, I too expect nothing from anyone, but when one behaves extraordinary, I feel deep inside that “I didn’t expect that” maybe because we rarely see good manners around. Maybe.

    • Yeah, may be we rarely see good manners. But, I guess, my issue is I am generally surrounded by good mannered people at work , family or neighbours, that I really get taken aback when they display bad manners, and then I feel I didn’t expect that. or may be it is because I don’t expect anyone to have bad manners in the first place, that I feel I didn’t expect that. I am being to feel I am on another planet – may be it is me! I love the quote as good manners is a mark of respect to another Human Being / Soul.

  2. Good manners should be the minimum and not an exception. Whether I want something or not I always give people the courtesy, not necessarily because they deserve it, but to represent myself in a respectful way.

  3. I completely agree! Good manners should be a commonplace, a natural behaviour, but it’s so rare these days that we get surprised when someone shows a sign of good behaviour an kindness towards us.
