The Golden Rule?

The scriptures teach us to “do unto others as we would have them do to us”, but often we end up experiencing people doing to us what we expect them to do to us. Depending on our outlook and attitude, we can expect and experience negative things or positive things. Like it or not, we are the authors of our own lives. Many will not want to accept this, mostly this is due to an unwillingness to accept responsibility for our lives. It is much easier to let someone else determine our lives that to do the hard work and direct our own paths.

If some other worldly force is pulling and prodding me in whatever direction it wants to, then  – success or failure – it’s not my fault. The end result is just marked down to as being “supposed to happen”. The truth is that life itself is difficult and requires hard work from us. Our response should be to pu;; ourselves up from our bootstraps and live life to its fullness, not wimp out and let “whatever will be…..be.”
