The Biblical principal of the law of reciprocity would revolutionize our world if it were put into practice at every level of society.
Personally and Professionally:
Don't like being judged; don't judge. Don't like being oppressed; don't oppress. Don't like being gossiped about; don't gossip. Don't want your belongings stolen; don't steal. Don't want to be labelled; don't label. Would like help when you're in need; help others. Would like a trusted confidant: be a trusted confidant. Would like to be fed when hungry; feed others.
Don't like your waterways polluted: don't pollute others. Don't want to breathe in chemically polluted air: don't pollute the air. Don't want poison in your veins: don't poison others. Don't want your ideas stolen: don't steal others. Dont want to be taken advantage of: don't take advantage of others. Don't want to be marginalized; don't marginalize.
If this principal were applied globally, there would be no need for armies, jails, or prisons: nations would look out for each other, the burdens on our governments would be reduced, and people would be productive and community focused.
There is no nation, no government, no religion, no community, no workplace, no school, no family, and no person, that wouldn't benefit from this principal.
Today, treat people how you want to treated.
This quote tugs at my heartstrings. I would feel very proud if my children thought of me when thinking of these attributes, I would be even prouder if they consistently exhibit these qualities in their own lives.
There is a big problem when society see's empathy and compassion as a negative or a weakness. I hate hearing the term bleeding hearts. To me being caring and compassionate are the most important qualities a person can possess.
Every time I think of Dolly and her family it just breaks my heart. Banter has always been part of Australian culture but when it is taken to the next level and people say things to intentionally upset or hurt others it is not ok. Without empathy and compassion for others bullying is taken to an entirely new level and beautiful children's lives are being cut short.
Teach your children to be fair, to care, to show empathy and compassion to others but do more than that and model it in your own life. 💕
Do you all are this girl right here. She is getting so much hate and does not deserve it. I used to hate on her and that was because she is gorgeous and I was so jealous of her. But I let that go. A bunch of limelight are being so rude to her. She does not deserve it she is so nice and kind and sweet and just an amazing person. I wish one day I can meet her. People need to stop hating on this world. If you are reading this would you like to get treated the way aspen is getting treated i don't think you would. All I am saying is if you don't like her don't talk about her because she is getting so many people talk and about her it is horribly. @aspenloeffler #stopbullying#spreadpositive#treatpeoplehowyouwanttobetreated#loveandpeace
