The Golden Rule is a really good and the most powerful rule as to how people relate with each other and with their Maker.
The Rule as many may know clearly states or says that " Do unto others as you want others to do unto you" . Why then will this Rule be considered as Golden?? This rule is Golden because it is the only Rule that I will say facilitates all the other Rules. We are gonna dive Right into it ..
Hello everyone,It's Dangerous_Fly again on this and I present to you another smash article, to keep your mindset pure. "Do unto others as you want them to do unto you".. Please subscribe if you haven't..
Let's get started .
One might ask how does the Golden Rule facilitate other Rules or why do I say it is the backbone of all Rules??
Actually to me, to be able to follow the Golden Rule, you got to have some values and virtues of life which is forever positive . To live according to the Rule, it requires a lot of values which most people do not have thereby causing them to do things to people that they don't expect others to do unto them ..
For such values include ; love, care, honesty, respect of views, tolerance and a whole lot of other things and also the feeling of knowing that all people are equal.. Treating each other with these values acts accordingly to the Rule .
To be able to fulfill the command of do not kill, you are already fulfilling the Golden Rule because you will not like to be killed , the act of respect to parents also constituents to the Golden Rule since you won't like it when disrespected by your children, not bearing false witness also constitutes the Golden Rule , just think about it and relate it and ask yourself, will I be happy if this happened to me ?? Or what will be my reaction if someone does that to me.
Now let's take these questions and seek for their answers.
Ask yourself these questions. Will someone ever lie against his/her loved one? Will someone humiliate one he/she respects in public ?? What about this will someone who sees his brother as his classmate no matter his rank talk less of him?? Basically the answer is no. If there is a yes to these questions then I say those qualities are not the qualities we are talking about . Note : Someone telling you I love doesn't mean the person loves you , but his/her actions and inactions will tell you if it is true or not . Therefore for a genuine love , care , respect or tolerance none of the above questions can be yes as an answer. There is no one who shows absolute care or love who will go contrary to this basic questions..
Now let's see how and why people divert from the Golden Rule..
Let's take this into consideration.
It has been one thing I matter about really. This was the painful and "shameful" death of George Floyd .He was put to this death not long ago.I don't really know what happened before the incident but for all I know, The COP continually knelt on his neck for approximately 8 minutes although he was begging for pardon, but he didn't let go of him. He cried out for the COP to temper Justice With Mercy but he didn't.. He did this until George Floyd died without help.
The question is , will someone do this to his colleague if he loves him, cares about him, sees him as his level mate or tolerates his views or even doesn't want to see him hurt? NO . Here I suppose the feeling of supremacy brought this . The white without doubt consider the blacks as inferior thereby they do anything they want to them because they know they can't be any kind of attack. They know for sure that, they can't be overpowered by the blacks so they do what they want but in reality, they would never love someone to do exactly what they did to Floyd to any of their people.
Another situation , currently, I read about a pathetic story of the youngest African American to be executed by electric chair.
He was accused falsely in order words , his neighbor bore false witness again him by accusing him of killing two whites , he was executed without a fair trial although he sweared by the Holy Bible he was not guilty.
After several years of his death, his name was cleared as he was found not to be guilty.. You can read the whole story here..
The question goes on , will these people accept if their children are accused wrongly and killed or executed?? No but they have done some to others .
Enough of this, now let's get back on track.
Upon all these facts , it can be pointed out clearly that the feeling of supremacy is really the contradiction to the Golden Rule.
Now as a matter of fact, as we all associate with each other in this platform, I would love to add something small about relating with others here .
To go by the Golden Rule . I suggest you go by these
Be supportive : Be willing to help other people , give them the maximum support you can because for an actual fact you also need it.
Be Appreciative : Be able to appreciate and congratulate people for their care and support because everyone loves the feeling of being honoured.
Be Tolerant : There are different opinions of people on the platform, some are in acceptance of your points you try to make while others aren't. Be sure to respect all opinions and don't over react.
You might be right but please let it go if you can't do it politely
Try to make the person understand what you mean in a friendly manner
Don't be Rude in expressing or in explanation of your point to someone
Don't be harsh..
To actually relate well and happily with other people the Golden Rule must be your point of learning and you will have to act accordingly.. From the above I know and I am sure no one will be happy If they are not supported, appreciated, tolerated or being cared for.
I thereby suggest we all live by these standards and avoid the thing of supremacy (where people think they are supreme) . You might be rich, a white, a black, a poor , a high level public figure , a disgrace to community, be a part of this ethnic group or that but all I say is that no matter your rank, race, skin color, choice of food, culture, wealth or living standards, live according to the Golden Rule and matters or situations will begin to change. Please do well to treat all people equally and fairly..
