The Universal Law Behind the Golden Rule

- by Tony Mase - All Rights Reserved

In Chapter 7 of the book of Matthew, Jesus is quoted as saying:

"Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the law and the prophets."

When Jesus made this statement, he wasn't just teaching his followers a religious rule...

He was teaching his followers the *practical* application of a Universal law.

This Universal law is known by many names:

The law of cause and effect...

The law of karma...

And...

The law of sowing and reaping...

Are just a few of them.

In his writings, Wallace D. Wattles, best known for his classic masterpiece "The Science of Getting Rich", frequently refers to it as the law of action and reaction...

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Odds are you've heard this Universal law expressed in many different ways:

Energy always returns to the source of its origination...

What goes around comes around...

What you do comes back to you...

You reap what you sow...

And...

My personal favorite:

It always comes back to bite you in the...

Well...

You know the rest. :-)

Regardless of how this Universal law is expressed...

The bottom line is...

Whatever you put out into the Universe comes back to you.

And...

More importantly...

Because it's a law...

Whatever you put out into the Universe *always* comes back to you.

This is the way the Universe works.

When you look at it this way, it puts Jesus' words in a whole new light, doesn't it?

Practicing the Golden Rule, as it's come to be known as, isn't just the moral thing to do, or the right thing to do...

It's the *smart* thing to do!

Why?

Simple...

Because it's the law...

If you cheat others, you *will* be cheated.

If you hate others, you *will* be hated.

If you hurt others, you *will* be hurt.

If you judge others, you *will* be judged.

If you steal from others, you *will* be stolen from.

If you take advantage of others, you *will* be taken advantage of.

If you treat others rudely, you *will* be treated rudely.

On the other hand...

If you forgive others, you *will* be forgiven.

If you help others, you *will* be helped.

If you love others, you *will* be loved.

If you treat others fairly, you *will* be treated fairly.

If you treat others honestly, you *will* be treated honestly.

If you treat others kindly, you *will* be treated kindly.

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction...

Whatever you put out into the Universe always comes back to you...

You can't escape it...

It's the law!

Now...

One thing that's *very* important to understand...

When Jesus said:

"Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the law and the prophets."

He was *not* saying this because others, themselves, will "do unto you" what you have done unto them.

Jesus was saying this because the Universe, God or whatever you prefer to call the "Universal Power" behind all things, will "do unto you" what you have done unto others!

For example...

If you steal something from someone, it doesn't necessarily mean that particular person will steal something from you.

However...

You *will* be stolen from.

It's not a matter of "if"...

It's just a matter of when and how!

On the other hand...

If you treat someone honestly, it doesn't necessarily mean that particular person will treat you honestly.

However...

You *will* be treated honestly.

Again...

It's not a matter of "if"...

It's just a matter of when and how!

Why?

Because it's the law...

It's the way the Universe works.

So...

The next time you're about to do something...

Anything...

That involves other people...

Ask yourself this very simple question:

Would I want someone else doing this to me?

If your answer is yes...

Do it.

If your answer is no...

Don't.

It's that simple.

Remember...

Practicing the Golden Rule...

Doing unto others as you'd have them do unto you...

Or...

Treating others as you'd like to be treated...

Isn't just the moral thing to do, or the right thing to do...

It's the *smart* thing to do!
