Unwise Words 4 – The Golden Rule
October 6, 2008

I think “do to others what they would have you do to them” would be a better rule.  Everyone has different life philosophies and principles, and on a more concrete level, different behaviours and mannerisms.  Would it not be ignorant and perhaps self-righteous to assume that others want to be treated the way that you do?  It’s similar to the gift-buying principle – buy a gift that the person, not you, would like to receive.

Unwise Words 1 - Karma

Karma is not throwing a banana peel and proceeding to slip on it.  If you throw a banana peel harder, it’s going to be nowhere near you so you’re less likely to slip on it.

Karma is throwing a boomerang and being hit by it (if you have poor hand-eye coordination).  If you throw a boomerang harder, it’s going to come back harder AND faster.

Please, you can’t outbitch karma.
