‘Treat others how you would wish to be treated’ is a common truism that has grass roots in the notion of Karma. Some may even call it the law of attraction, others still Christianity. However you choose to describe the origins of this truism I firmly believe that when you extend forgiveness to others, others are more inclined to extend forgiveness to you.

 

Some of the greatest speakers in the world such as Tony Robbins, Oprah and Deepak Chopra all recognize and frequently advise that if you are seeking more of something in the world, whether it be kindness, peace or even love, you first need to extend this very same thing to others in order to see it fully manifest in your life.

 

I really believe this to be true however when we feel we are lacking something how do we then find enough of it to extend it to others? One of the simplest ways is to imagine what we would like others to do for us and then do this same thing for them with a loving spirit and an attitude of not expecting anything in return. The ways these loving actions are returned may not come back to you as you initially expect. Loving actions may be returned to you from different people entirely so it is important to give without preconceived notions of how and who will be returning what you choose to extend to others.

 

Do you believe that how you treat others will ultimately be returned to you? Do you have anything you are lacking that you now feel you would like to extend to others so it will manifest more in your life? What do you feel you are currently lacking?
