Morning Cup of Joe – The Golden Rule


Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. Yes, that is a golden rule but unfortunately it’s not a rule that everyone in the world chooses to follow. When you think about life’s karmic cycle, how you treat others is how you can expect to be treated. There are so many people who recklessly disregard this rule and act as if their actions have no consequences. Fortunately, they are sadly mistaken. Sooner than later, they’ll find out.

If good things aren’t happening to you, it is most likely because you haven’t been good to others. Some people think that they can go through life and do whatever they want to while treating people poorly, lying, cheating and even stealing without consequence. The fact of the matter is, many people choose to go through life this way. However, one day it will catch up to them and when it inevitably does, they’ll wish they had done things differently. Treat people right and you will have absolutely no reason to watch your back.

Learn to permanently adopt the word “integrity” into your vocabulary and incorporate it into each human interaction. I firmly believe that you reap what you sow. If you sow bad seeds, you will reap bad crops. If you do people wrong, eventually you will be done wrong ten times over. It is much easier to treat people the way you would want to be treated. It’s not only easy, it’s the right thing to do. Insane is a person who responds to the world negatively yet expects the world to respond to them positively.

Everything is cyclical in nature. Give love and love will return. Do people wrong and eventually it will catch up to you. It’s not too late to change your ways; start now.

To The Top!
