The Golden Rule or ethic of reciprocity is a maxim that essentially states either of the following:
1. One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.
2. One should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated
This isn’t terribly complicated. It is self-evident. Any religion, spirituality, or philosophy will easily spot the ring of truth in this maxim. Any and every person can adopt this basic premise for life and living. So, we start with this. We seek to be and live this truth today.
