"Be still and know your Authentic Self"
Today was an interesting day, from an interesting week. It all started with a question, I asked " where are there more people that think the way I do?" Then I found this site and it is great. Fast forward to today, I am cleaning up garbage that is scattered around at work, I pick up this piece of paper and this is what it says:
Be still and know your Authentic Self
A wise old shared sanskrit word with me , leela, meaning life is play. Don't take life to seriously ~sincerely yes, seriously no. A serious life is rigid, non-fexible, and can break when reaching critical thresholds attained through stress. Whereas, 'sincere' is an old pottery term meaning no wax, the vessel (life) has no flaw and is authentic.
We teach others how to treat us by following the Golden Rule~ "Do unto others as you would would have them do unto you". As we sow so shall we reap and the law of Karma, for every action there is a balancing counteraction.
How to be of this world if not of it? An old Sufi said " Life is a bridge, don't build a house on it." Be still and know your Authentic Self. Cheif Dan George said " The young and the old are closest to life for they cherish every moment."
When it comes down to it, everything is for lessons and learning and we teach most what we need to learn. The goal is always the same, to discover our true self, our true nature and offer that back to the world. when we give the gift of ourseves to the world, the gift we are giving is validated, if we don't give the gift then we don't have it; we have to have something to give it. It is through giving that the gift is actualized.
All of life is a mirrror, a feed back mechanism ~ showing us our true nature and what attitudes, judgements, beliefs, and what blocks we have to being and expressing our true selves, our true nature. If we are present and going beyond the veil of illusion and denial we will see our gifts, talents, medicine and our naturalness while engaging the mirror of life.
We become like the sumo wrestler holding our center of gravity, the core of our being in this world. thus we have awareness to be cause and creativity rather than at the effect and reactivity. Our mind is like a garden, we need to choose what grows in the garden and we water and nourish it by what we entertain and occupy or mind-scape with. Every man, woman, child must tend to the garden of their soul alone.

I never liked the golden rule. it assumes that other people want the same thing that you want. How about.
Do unto others as you imagine they want you to do unto them, bearing in mind they may not want the same things as you at all, in fact it is pretty much guess work, but give it your best shot anyway, you'll find out soon enough if you got it wrong as you will very likely find yourself invited on a trip to guilt. If so, next time try something different. Either that, or just ask them what they want and do that. In fact, that last one is probably where you should start now I've had a think about it.
there much better
a big problem is that most people might do unto others as they want done onto them, but boy do they not THINK about others as they want others to think about them.( I'm not even counting what happens behind your back, which they assume isn't actually " doing" something to you, so there for doesn't count).
