I’m wishing everyone a month long and every month filled with peace, abundance, joy, and love.
We need to be happy with what we have in order to move forward on our journey.

Sometimes we think we want things to turn out a certain way. We will hope and pray for something specific. We might take action towards certain goals. We might try to control situations that are beyond our control. But sometimes, the most healing and enlightening thing to do is to allow the universe to send us what we need rather than what we think it is we want.
An example in my own life has been several partners and jobs that came to me when perhaps I wanted something better, shinier, or more permanent for myself. Sometimes we just have to let things play out due to karma we might have accumulated from the past that keeps us stuck in seemingly stagnant situations. When we allow the karma to play out, it can actually be very healing and good for our souls.
In Western society, we tend to see things much more rationally and linearly—we think that taking action towards our goals is always the best way to create what we want in life. Oftentimes when we do this, we get to a certain destination, and instead of being happy where we are, we continue to want more and better for ourselves...
We all may know The Golden Rule, but do we all follow it? That’s the question.
We always seemed to hear people from different races and backgrounds that may say that you should treat a person (or people) in the way you want to be treated. Though, I have heard others mentioned this verse from the Bible (Matthew 7:12), but most of them doesn’t follow said verse. It’s saddening how someone can quote the Bible and tell others they should follow the “Word,” but the person saying it doesn’t do it. I know that it is a good thing to read the Bible; however, it’s even better to follow it. Right?
I’m not a Bible thumper and I don’t always go to church. Though, I have gotten to know God for myself and have read the Bible just not the all the books. I’m more into my spirituality than getting into a religion. Given that, I will support a person and will not judge unless that person is doing something bad like hurting and killing people for instance.
No one is perfect. And no one should not tell someone how they ought to live, especially if they are not doing so. We all must treat each individual in that same manner we want someone to treat us. And if they won’t treat you like how you want to be treated, then leave them where they are, or whatever you decide to do. Your life is too precious.
So, it doesn’t really matter where a person is from. Or their race and background; the Golden Rule is still pretty much means the same. Treat others as you would like to be treated. Be you. Be true. And most of all, be kind to others.
What does the Golden Rule means to you? And have you experienced people not practicing what they preach or otherwise? Tell us about it in the comments.
