yes I do believe in this. It always happen to most people. When they've done something wrong to others it will come right back to them maybe not immediately but they would really experience what they did to others. Same as when you are kind or you are doing good to others, it will come right back to you. You will receive good treatment from others too. I really believe on this.

i do believe in it. for instance it could be a guide to our journeys ahead in life.. but sometimes find yourself wondering why those other people does bad things to you.. but in living in this one simple rule, could make a good output in life..

For the most part I believe in the golden rule of "do on to others as you would want them to do unto you" or in plain terminoligy, "treat others the way you want to be treated". I use that as a default setting so to speak. But about two years ago someone introduced me to what they called the "Platinum Rule" and that was "treat others the way they want to be treated". I found the statement profound. Everyone doesn't want the same treatment that you want. You may be a morning person and like to chit-chat etc. where someone else likes to be left alone. So if you find that left alone is what they prefer, that's what you should do. I also believe in what goes around comes around, so I am careful about what I do to people. I try my best not to do things to people to be malicious.

I sure do! I discovered a few years ago that most religions have some form of this built into their foundation. When we all cared more about the feelings of others (than ourselves) the world was a better place. Now everyone seems so selfish and self-centered.

hello, i totally agree with you. what i learned was when you do a good deed with one person that person will do something good to another and it become a cycle. if we all do this, this will make out world a better place to live in. :) thanks for the post and have a great day. :)
