Do you know the saying….
"Do unto others as we would have them do unto us."
What about the same one, with a twist?
"Do unto YOURSELF as you would have done unto others.".
For some, one truth might resonate more than the other. It seems as society, spiritual philosopy and other guidelines stems from to those who lived life from a superior ego.
Superior or inferior ego?
There are little talks about the inferior ego, maybe, cus many ( apologise of being unfare or stepping on someones toes ) spiritual teachers & leaders come from a more superior ego? It is more realistic that those charactheres would, reach out, preach and take lead...
Many guideline suggests " treat others as you want to be treated yourself"... and this of course awesome.
What if, some have a tendency to be more loving, kind and generous and "do unto YOURSELF as you would have done unto others" would resonate more?
Some do not actually live from a place self serving, there are genuinly kind pure hearted souls out there whom even do not live from a place of pleasing/over serving/ martyr.
Its rare thou.
And hard for the opposite to vibrate with, there is no reference point.
And most likely many won´t last to long as it sadly seems to be more normal ( with a twist ) with greed, power games and lies. Hence the guidline "do unto others as we would have them do unto us" might be more of a practise.
Is this to a refelction on how twisted things can be?
That it is legal to smoke cigarettes, produce pharmaceuticals, have women wear burqa and big brother to watch every step when many herbs are illegal, public breast feeding/nudity banned ( slightly exagerating ) and naiveity/innocence/open heart and genuine sweetness is seen as something weak and often abused?
The guideline, "do unto others as we would have them do unto us" is of course utterly important and just imagine how the world would look like if majority did their best to vibrate with this.
The cause I wrote turned from start to end, and I´ll come back to the struggle of the inferior ego. Until then "do unto YOURSELF as you would have done unto others"
That might work for both ends to wake up/realize value in one way or another.
