"All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them." #LightTheWorld day 13
One of the simplest ways to #LightTheWorld is simply to get along with those around us.
This is possible to accomplish by simply following the golden rule.
If we wouldn't like people to treat us certain way then we shouldn't be treating them that way. If we want respect and appreciation then we should respect and appreciate others... Simple, but not always easy to accomplish since our selfish "monkey brain" and evolved natures often get in the way.
It takes humility and courage to be the first to act. When faced with a situation where the onus is on us to take the first step or reach out and make the first move we are often naturally hesitant, but being the bigger person and acting in a way that we would like to be treated usually pays off handsomely in the end.
Pride may stand in the way and we find ourselves justifying less appropriate and constructive responses because these seem to us to be our rightful reaction.
We can swallow our pride and be a better self.
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” This is called the Golden Rule, and if everyone followed it, the world would be a better place.
