The Global Golden Rule or The Quantum Golden Rule
A Philosophy - A Meditation
Global/Quantum Golden Rule
When asked to express my philosophy of life this morning in the forums - I just realized that the only philosophy I've ever really needed is the Golden Rule. Now that I am older and realize that the world of action and wisdom doesn't stop with humans, I've expanded this Rule to include the whole Earth - the other planets, and whatever is out there in our universe and beyond.
It is just as basic as ever and beyond "Do no harm". Probably the first humans had a glimmer of "do the right thing" when they realized that alone they would die, but as a community they could survive in spite of all the danger out there. Now that we've progressed enough to have very few real threats to our survival (except each other) we can embrace this concept of the Global/Quantum Golden Rule by treating all the planet and all the worlds we come into contact with as we would have ourselves treated, with goodness and grace and respect.
I think of this as something beyond religion or any religious dogma. It is a philosophy that can work for everyone and perhaps is the most necessary kind of attitude we could ever embrace. Beyond our opinions about life and how to live it, there is how we will treat the world. More than a philosophy, it is one of our basic needs to respect the rest of everything.
I don't have to say more. I know now what I can say whenever anyone asks "What is your philosophy of life?"
I will just answer: "The Global Golden Rule also known as The Quantum Golden Rule" pass it on!
