‘Treat others how you would wish to be treated’ is a common truism that has grass roots in the both the Bible and Karma. Some may even call it the law of attraction, others still their faith. Whatever its origins, 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 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 then give it out freely? 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 by not expecting anything in return.
It’s true that the ways these loving actions are returned may not come back to you as you initially expect. Loving actions may be returned from different people entirely, so it’s wise to give without any ideas of how and who will be returning what you give.
Do you believe that how you treat others will ultimately be returned to you? Do you have anything you are now lacking, that you feel you would like to give, so it will manifest more in your life?
