Luke 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.
I think about this and use it quite often when teaching my children. or people I work with. I think we are all taught this easy to understand principle right? It makes us feel good to give to others with out expecting anything in return right? Well, lets discuss that part a little. Do we expect when we give? We try not to, or at least most of us try not to expect anything. But what if you do? How can you not be that way? Even just a little thank you or a smile for acknowledgement? You buy someone lunch or a birthday present, or pick up their mail in the office and deliver it to them. Do you get offended or hurt when you don’t get a response or a thank you even? We are taught it is good manners to say thank you. And it is, however should we expect it? And should we feel hurt if we don’t get one. The answer is no, we should not expect or demand a response.
If we are living in our own truth, living our lives by fulfilling our own needs, not expecting others to do it. Then we will not be hurt if someone does not say thank you. We will just do the giving and walk away content that we were able to do a good deed. If we can all give just to give with out receiving, we would all be content with giving.
Do on to yourself as you would have others do on to you!
What is the last thing you did for yourself? When did you just do something to please yourself and only you last?
If you are taking care of your own needs fully and to your own satisfaction then you will attract the same to you. We teach people how to treat us by the way we show we are treating ourselves. That is a big lesson that we don’t get taught, or at least most us don’t.
Do you feel guilty when you get a extra treat for yourself? Or take some time to do your favorite things? Do you remember what that would be?
How can we expect others to treat us or love us if we are not even doing it to ourselves.
So go get your balance back, treat yourself to a massage, pedicure, facial, join a yoga class or work out routine, go hiking, walking, paint that picture, make that craft, the list is a long as you want to make it. But first you must learn to do it with out the guilt and just really raise your vibration by doing it with pride.
Because you are Gods child and you deserve it!
And when you do you will lead by example and show people how to love you.
