Today, starting now, we all should live our lives by living what we believe in our hearts.
The Golden Rule suggests that we should act as if we are are interacting with ourselves. We should be the person we think other people should be to us.
Do you want people to treat you badly, lie, cheat, steal, be dis-honorable, do poor work, yell at you, blame you, charge you more than they should, treat you as “less than,” offer excuses all the time, do poor quality work, stomp on your beliefs, take your freedom,… ? This could be a really long list and you could add to it, because you know exactly what I mean — you’ve been treated badly, likely recently.
Or would you rather put the REAL YOU out there, as you would like others to do, too?
We make these types of choices many times a day. Somewhere within everyone I believe there is a sense of what is right and honorable and what is not. Some people have REALLY lost their way, in this regard, it seems; but I do believe they once knew where that place was within their hearts. Somewhere along the way they made choices that caused them to lose that truth, that honor, that understanding.
I don’t think most of us have; though — I think we forget to honor it and we find excuses not to honor it.
Is money, or power, or things, or one-up-manship… is ANYTHING really worth losing that truth?
LIVE YOUR TRUTH again. Start now and don’t lose sight of it, ever. Because… this IS your life and every day speaks to who you are and where you are going with it. Honor who you are at heart.
THAT is how we will change the world.
Now get out there and hug someone; just because somewhere deep inside I bet you would really like a hug.
