Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. – Matthew 7:12
My life is a reflection of the golden rule and it is the foundation of who I am. It's something I learned when I was a little girl and it can be so easy to remember.
When someone treats me with disrespect, anger or jealousy, I don't fire back with derision. Instead, I treat them with respect and kindness. Does this change who I am? No. Does this change who they are? I hope so.
Think for a moment what would happen if you combated negativity with positivity. For every angry outburst, you react with love. For every act of bullying, you strike back with kindness. For every time someone acted jealous, you compliment them. The world would be changed and people's hearts would be filled with the Light.
Live the Golden Rule and watch with wonder as your heart, and the hearts of everyone you encounter, are changed forever!
