Came from a chat I’m having… right now.
The golden rule that I mean is of course: do unto other what you wished to be done unto yourself.
It’s a great idea, although I still doesn’t like the wording that made it sounds so realistic, people do something in expectation of reciprocated action from others.
The original statement is active in nature. Do good to others. Other way of seeing it in passive meaning, don’t hurt others unless you’re a masochist.
It’s about karma, what you do will return to you eventually.
But in recent time, does the rule still works the same ? Although unspoken, I think it has shifted to another type of passive command based not on natural karma, but vengeance. If you don’t want to be disturbed, don’t get involved and shut up.
