There is a golden thread that weaves itself through many cultures.
Buddhists say: “Hurt not others in ways that you yourself find hurtful.”
Hindus say: “Do nothing unto others which would cause you pain if done to you.”
Moslems say: “No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.”
Jews say: “What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow men.”
The golden thread is, of course, the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Jesus goes a step further in the Sermon on the Mount saying “return good for evil.” A bit more practical, St. Augustine says “Do what you can do and pray for what you cannot do.”
Here are a few suggestions you may find helpful in living the Golden Rule in your everyday life.
Be a positive force for good by living the Golden Rule daily. Won’t you be all you can be to help make this world a better place.
