The Golden Rule

“do unto others as you would have them do unto you”

A simple thought, yet so difficult to follow. I know because I am guilty of it. I think we as people just tend to forget it when getting lost in our own daily concerns. If only we had a switch in our brains that told us, “hey, you sure you wanna do that?” Or gave us a quick video clip of what it would be like if what we were doing at that moment to someone else was happening to us. I’d suggest that this clip has features with choices such as “how would your mother feel?” We get so caught up in the moment that we may not even care what anyone at all thinks or would have to say. That’s where another switch would come in handy, one that keeps us grounded. But then we would be robots and the world wouldn’t be as complex and unique as it is.
