Do Unto Others and the Same Will Be Done Unto You By Others !!

October 16th, 2009

I think the Golden Rule is an over-arching rule of life. It seems that many in our society seem to forget these words / this rule when interacting with others. I think these words are / this rule is more than a proverb, however. I am convinced that the wording of the Golden Rule is a warning that has been passed down through the ages. As an example, when interacting with others in most of life’s settings, I am convinced that if one were to concern themselves with the well-being of the other party [or parties] interacting in any given matter, that the end product of the dealings will be much more rewarding to the non-self-centered party – more rewarding than can even be measured or anticipated in most cases. Bottom line: if nothing else, at least try to be nice and polite to everyone.


PS. I mean..., in the extreme and if I were God, I would go around as a homeless, down-trodden individual and see how I was treated for future reference.

Focus / Concentrate on the Positive, Positive Energy

October 14th, 2009

Focus on the positive things in life. Don't fall into the trap of focusing on negative energy - I know its easy to become negative and I dont mean to preach, as I am no saint, I'm sure. However, when focusing on negative energy one enters into a downward spiral that leads to more negative energy heading one's way. Negativity only begets more negativity - from both yourself and from others as well. To put it simply, try to focus on what is good in life and try not to unduly focus on any shortcomings of life. When something goes awry and causes any anger, acknowledge that negative energy and try to channel it into doing something productive - preferably use that energy to positively change the situation.
