The Golden Rule is a recurring theme found in some variation in many belief systems and historic cultures. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said, "We are all Spiritual beings on a human journey." Given that, we should not judge our fellow humans. They have written their life charts to put them in situations and we can not judge them for how they wanted to be challenged in this lifetime.
Loving your neighbor as yourself goes hand in hand with the Law of Attraction because if you treat people the way you want to be treated, you attract being treated the way you want. Loving your neighbor is also part of a high vibration. By loving, which is a high vibration, you raise your vibration.
Here are some ways to love your neighbor as yourself:
- Be a good listener. Listen to others stories, share our own.
- Respect their Boundaries.
- Greet People in public.
- Tell people when they do a good job.
- Appropriate compliments.
- Appropriate gifts.
- Spend time with people.
- Community involvement. (Volunteer at New Sunflower Church)
- Share Meals or give to a food pantry.
- Send them Healing. (Healing Request Form)
- Pray for them. (Prayer Request Form)
