The Golden Rule: A Lesson in Oneness Throughout the Ages


Paul Lenda | WakeUpWorld

The concept of Oneness — being One with everyone and everything — is not a new concept at all. It is actually the underlying concept of all major belief systems that have survived to this day.

In recent times, this concept has been dubbed The Golden Rule which expresses that we are to treat others as we would like them to treat us. We are all part of the same whole and any one thing we do to someone else, we are doing to ourselves. This is where global consciousness becomes a relevant topic, which is the idea that each one of the 7 billion individual brains that have consciousness are in fact, one collective consciousness.

The Golden Rule is the central teaching to all of the following belief systems:

Buddhism: “Hurt not others with that which pains yourself.” (From the Udanavarga 5.18)

Christianity: “In everything, do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.”(Matthew 7:12 – NRSV)

Hinduism: “Do naught to others which if done to thee would cause thee pain.”(From the Mahabharata 5.1517

Islam: “No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.” (Sunnab)

Jainism: “In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, we should regard all creatures as we regard our own self.” (Lord Mahavir 24th Tirthankara)

Judaism: “What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow human beings. That is the law; all the rest is commentary.”(Talmud, Shabbat 3 l a)

Confucianism: “Never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself. “(Analects XV.24)

Native Spiritual Traditions: “Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.” (Chief Seattle)

Shintoism: “Be Charitable to all beings, love is the representation of god.” (KO-JI-KI Hachiman Kasuga)

Sikhism: “Don’t create enmity with anyone as God is within everyone.”(Guru Arjan Devji 259. Guru Granth Sahib)

Taoism: “Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain; and regard your neighbor’s loss as your own loss.” (Tai Shang Kan Ying P’ien)

The Common Foundations of Religions and Theology - The Golden RuleIt’s easy to see that the Golden Rule is a universal teaching found in many major belief system; an underlying truth that resonates in all schools of thought that choose to be in harmony with nature, the universe, and reality (even if those paths say theirs in the only one and all others are wrong — clearly that is not the case.)

It’s not difficult to discover why so many people today live their lives out of touch with this interconnected reality. What they are experiencing is the feeling of separateness… a feeling that is not ultimately real. Our material reality, which we experience as separate seemingly-physical objects, is but a filtered version of the ultimate unity which connects everything. This filtered version creates a perception of separateness because it only experiences bits and pieces of the whole at a time.

      That’s exactly so..chemicals..vaccination etc are all tools to separate people from their higher self..The matrix is very real..Some see it for what it is and some are not ready to see it yet !

    •' Penny Truex says:

      Yes, from others and from their higher self which is oneness. And as Diana Schaber points out, it is fear dominated suppressive agressive policies which do this.

  2.' Diana Schaber says:

    The system thrives on separation, if you are in disconnect you can be easily frightened and told anything and you Will believe, and beg for protection. Fear based reality.
