Which To Do?


Some people say, “Don’t do to others what you would not have them do to you.”

Every system has its rules and regulations, and we must follow them. There must be no deviation and violation of them.

We are told to mind our own business. Let other people take care of themselves.

“Don’t meddle into people’s affairs,” was what we were told when we were young.

We are often reminded not to cause harm to others, or it may lead to terrible consequences.

A tiny spark can set a great forest on fire, we are often told.

*******

Others say, “Do to others what you would have them do to you.”

Now, this is different. This is a positive statement.

We must contribute towards the good of others.

We must have positive thoughts, feelings and attitudes towards them.

And we must do more good.

We must learn to share more, and take less.

*******

Now, that is a tough call.

Which is the right thing to do?

I leave it to you to decide.
