Golden Rule

"in the Abrahamic religions, there are hundreds of commandments, but those first ten laws of integrity are based on a fundamental "Golden Rule" -- treat others as you would like them to treat you." Andrew Newberg, MD

What a different world we would have if everyone truly treated others as they, themselves, wanted to be treated.  A human basic need is to belong.  If we would all remember that, and treat others with dignity and respect, it would make a difference in the world.  Research has shown that an act of kindness benefits not only the person giving the kindness and the person receiving the kindness, but all the people who observe the act of kindness.  That has been demonstrated.  So, for today, let us treat each other with kindness, knowing we are benefiting ourselves and the world around us.
