by Asoka Selvarajah “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” A famous person said that, and you doubtless know who it is. Often called the Golden Rule, it forms the cornerstone of every major religion. Does it sound like nice advice, if you had the spare time, or if you are planning to be a saint? If so, it may astonish you to discover that, not only does this make sense from a spiritual and altruistic viewpoint, it is also good advice if you are acting from purely self-serving motives. It actually makes sound business sense too, although very few businesses operate that way. The reason for this is that the universe operates according to strict law, and not according to chance or luck. One of those laws is that of Karma, also known as the law of Cause and Effect. In the material world, it has its equivalent, and this is enshrined in one of Newton’s laws of motion; namely, “To every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction”. Thus, the Golden Rule is not just nice advice, if you can find the time and energy to get around to it. It is actually essential to your long-term success, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and materially. Let us examine why this is, and how exactly the law works. You may have heard of Karma, and believed that it only deals with reincarnation and past lives. Actually, it has a much more direct application here and now, and that is what the Golden Rule is really all about. At its essence, the universe is pure energy; the energy of creative intelligence. Moreover, YOU are a thinking center, and can form thoughts that radiate out into this creative ocean of intelligence. You are like a magnet, drawing to yourself whatever circumstances and people are in harmony with the vibration of your dominant thoughts. Your mind is like a broadcasting and receiving station for thought waves; of specific vibrational frequencies that you are free to choose. It is much the same as tuning your radio to a specific channel. Now you can better understand why it is that what you put out into the universe must come back on you in the end. That is the “selfish” basis of the Golden Rule. It’s not just about “being nice”. It’s got a hard-edged reality about it. You see, WHATEVER you put out – for good or ill – comes back on you eventually by infallible law. That is one excellent reason why you definitely want to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Let’s take a practical example. Let’s say you are angry with someone, either at home or at work. According to this rule, you would do best to treat that person with kindness and forgiveness, and NOT engage in retaliation, back-biting criticism, revenge or character assassination. The reason for this is twofold. First, even if the person is wrong, and is fully aware of the fact, no one takes kindly to being attacked. No one lies down and plays dead. Hence, your own attack, however justified, will only provoke a similar or greater reaction. If you speak ill of this other person, you can bet that person will find something bad to say about you, even if it is a lie. From the Golden Rule viewpoint, what you put out on that person will directly and pragmatically return to you. Second, consider the effect such behavior has upon you. In truth, regardless of external consequences, whatever you put out comes back on you directly via your internal psyche. Every thought you think modifies your psyche, and hence your essential character, for good or ill. You have a choice between a base response or one that is noble and high-minded. Whichever you choose will modify YOU accordingly. The next time you meet other such situations, you will be more likely to react in the same way. It will happen more naturally and more swiftly until it eventually becomes automatic. These are the reasons you must do unto others as you would have them do unto you. In a very literal sense, you ARE doing unto yourself whatever you are doing unto others in thought, word and deed. If you react negatively, you modify your inner psyche in a negative manner. This sets up negative vibration in your thoughts. If you do this often enough, the negative vibration becomes coherent, laser-beam focused, and begins to attract into your life other things, people and circumstances of harmonious vibration to itself. Karma does its work. Conversely, reacting in a positive manner, as dictated by the Golden Rule, sets up a positive vibration within you, and this attracts other positive vibrations into your life. So, in a sense, you could say it is good, practical, SELFISH advice. This explains another matter that often confuses people. They expect that if they help another person, a positive return should result from THAT person. No. That is not how it works at all. You may get nothing back from that specific individual. However, you do modify your own psychic vibration in a positive manner, which in turn attracts other vibrations of similar frequency. In turn, that manifests from the universe many circumstances and events of like vibration. You benefit, but not necessarily from the one whom you benifited. In other words, the good you will receive is guaranteed. However, the Infinite Intelligence will deliver it from a source of its choosing. Hopefully, this has helped you to see that the Golden Rule is not some sort of naive, wishful thinking theory. It is an essential and key secret to life. Imagine what the world would be like if nations could practice this attitude, as well as individuals. In truth, the Golden Rule is the fundamental spiritual law by which the universe works. If you live in accordance with it, you will manifest all the good that you desire , now and forever.Copyright Asoka Selvarajah 2003. All Rights Reserved.

When super-successful people tell their story, they always

The influence of one person CAN make a gigantic difference in
your future. And one such person is Bob Proctor.
Mr. Proctor has just introduced a very special program that will
definitely transform a lot of lives. It’s called The Freedom
Series and it’s about “improving your life everyday.”
The program is simple, affordable, and has got a strong
guarantee. You also get a Fr*ee Trial AND a Fr*ee Bonus.
Every month, The Freedom Series subscribers receive a CD with a
personal message from Bob that will show them how to:
Increase self awareness
Develop more meaningful relationships
Create and maintain a Winner’s Self-Image
Achieve any goal
and so much more that it would take an entire letter to describe all of the benefits.
Bob Proctor’s The Freedom Series can make a huge difference in
your life. And at only $14.95 a month (plus a small shipping
charge), Mr. Proctor has made it affordable for everybody to
benefit from this ageless wisdom.
Since Bob offers a 15-day Fr*ee Trial of The Freedom Series, he’s
taken all the risk out of trying it on for size. If after you’ve
experienced the first CD for a full two weeks, you don’t think
this is for you, you can cancel and receive a complete refund
— no questions asked. Bob’s made it very simple to cancel (it
takes about 30 seconds) and he’ll even let you keep the CD and
the bonus as his thanks.
And that’s not all. He’s designed this to be a long-term
program but without a long-term financial commitment. So you
may cancel whenwver you wish without any further obligation.
Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of the hugely successful Chicken
Soup books says about Bob Proctor: “Forty years ago, and in
less than a year’s time, Bob Proctor literally re-created his
life. In the 40 years since, he has dedicated his life to taking
thousands of people along with him to this rich and satisfying
life. He possesses a rare and rich knowledge of how the mind can
be programmed to operate at its fullest potential. No other
speaker alive teaches those concepts so clearly and accurately.”
Here’s what self-made millionaire John Assaraf said, “I got into
real estate, and I made $30,000 that year. And that’s the year I
was introduced to Bob Proctor. And the following year using
these exact principles I made $151,000. And my income has gone
from $151,000 to as much as 14 million in one year.”
As soon as you register, you can immediately download and start

Best-Seller, “You Were Born Rich.” There are countless examples
of the power of this book in other people’s lives. Indeed, Mr.
Sam Kalenuik was so influenced by it that he bought 30,000 COPIES
for the people in his company.
Here is just a small wisdom excerpt from “You Were Born Rich:”
“Regardless of the present circumstances in which you find
yourself, clearly understand that if you can build the image of
something new in your mind, something that far surpasses
anything that has occurred up until now, you have the ability to
realize that result in the material world. It could not be more
clear, that all of us have been “Born Rich,” in the sense of
having a magnificent God-given potential, which we owe ourselves
I am on the Freedom Series program myself and I can assure you
that the very first CD has powerful ideas that I have heard
nowhere else, and which will definitely make a powerful
difference for me over the next year alone. The Freedom Series CD
series is that life-changing.
The only excuse for still being in poverty is if you are stuck in
a 3rd world country, in some little agricultural village miles
from anywhere, you have no education, the only trade available is
selling the potatoes you grow, the government is a military
dictatorship, and your country is one of the 20th poorest
countries in the world. MAYBE, just maybe, you could justifiably
grumble about your lot.
Apart from that, what is YOUR excuse?
The very fact you are reading these words means that (a) you are
familiar with the English language; (2)you are connected to the
internet. In case you did not know it, these are HUGE advantages;
massive, unfair advantages over the VAST majority of the world’s
population. With just these two advantages alone, you could be
well on your way to generating all the wealth – financially,
emotionally and spiritually – that you could ever desire. All it
needs is for you to THINK CREATIVELY.
George Bernard Shaw is quoted as saying that to be poor is a sin.
Apart from the circumstances in the first paragraph of this
article, he is most certainly correct. There is no excuse for it.
Did you know that some of America’s multimillionaires arrived in
the country in refugee boats, with a only a handful of coins in
their pockets, and totally unable to even speak English? Yet,
within a decade or so, they had made more money than the vast
majority of Americans, whose families had been in the country for
So, what is your excuse, exactly?…
The key difference and advantage that such refugees have is
EXPECTATION. They expect America to be a land of opportunity,
where those who work hard can succeed. Strangely enough, their
perception eventually becomes their reality. Contrast this with
the millions of benefit seekers expecting a hand out, and blaming
the government, society or their spouse for their problems. Some
of these people are third generation welfare recipients. It’s
actually been handed down from parents to children.
No matter how dire your circumstances, if you can think of
someone who suffered the same or worse, and went on to succeed,
then you can do so too. If wealth was a question of race, then
only certain races would become wealthy. If it was caused by
environment, then only people of a certain environment could get
rich. If it was a matter of intelligence, then only intelligent
university graduates could become successful.
The fact that you can find exceptions to all of these “rules” -
and lots of them – proves that getting wealthy has nothing to do
with any of these factors. If it did, you could draw up some sort
of psychological, sociological, or racial profile. The truth of
the matter is that no such profile is possible. There are
mentally sub-normal millionaires. There are black
multimillionaires. There are people who were born into poverty
who are now billionaires. Yes, there are even people in
wheelchairs who made their millions from there. Paralyzed.
So, what is your excuse?…
The fact of the matter is that between your ears resides the key
to creating wealth in your life. It’s your power to think, and to
do so creatively. It’s your power to develop self-esteem,
unstoppable self-confidence, learn all you need to learn, be
prepared to take risks and suffer failure after failure until you
succeed, and your ability to persist after everybody else would
have given up that marks your capacity for success in ANYTHING,
not just in creating wealth.
This is the brutal truth and this is why most people fall short
of what they are capable of. They are not prepared to do all of
the above. Then, out come the excuses: “I’m black”, “I’m a
woman”, “My parents did this or that…”, “I was born in a small
town”, “I have no time”, and so on.
However, all these excuses are just to make you feel more
comfortable with yourself, so that you do not have to accept the
bitter truth. You WERE, and ARE, capable of much more, but you
are just not prepared, either through laziness of lack of guts,
to put yourself on the line, look ridiculous to your friends and
family, and PERSIST until what you desire comes your way.
There is a whole science of success, and it has been documented
like never before; in books, on audio tape, on video and in live
seminars. All of this is available to you. You can learn it,
apply it, and get the results. Instead, many lament they lack the
money or the time. They try to get it all for fr^ee online, and
refuse to invest in themselves in terms of the vital education
that could make all the difference.
If you have the money to purchase yourself those little luxuries in
life – be it cigarettes, alcohol, cable TV, rentable movies, the
latest games console, or whatever is your personal favorite -
stop saying you don’t have the money. If you can afford a
vacation, and spend more time planning that than you do the rest
of your life, then don’t say you lack the money or the time.
It’s simply a matter of priorities, and of what you consider
important in life.
Creating wealth requires foremost the capacity to think, and to
do so creatively. Napoleon Hill’s classic book is called “Think &
Grow Rich”, and there is a very good reason for that.
Thinking is the hardest job in the world, which is why most
people would rather die than do it. Here are just a few ideas.
You could write an e-book and sell it online. You could invent
something. If you lack specific expertise, you could form a
partnership with people who have the knowledge you need. You
could provide a vitally needed service in your local area.
There are so many things you could do to break out of the poverty
trap, if you are in it, or simply earn more money if you are
already reasonably comfortable. However, it requires you to THINK
outside the box. It requires you to forget relying on your
salary, and allowing that to dictate how you live. That should be
only ONE source of income. You should learn to develop many
others. Then, one fine day, you can drop the salaried job because
you simply do not need it anymore. You would only continue with
it if that job represents what you love to do with your life.
This is NOT too hard for you to achieve. The fact that you are
reading this, and hence understand English and have internet
connection, already means you have tremendous advantages in
creating your personal fortune. If you search yourself carefully,
you will also discover MANY other resources besides just these
two. Use them.
Get the information you need from the many books,
tapes and courses available, become DETERMINED to change your
circumstances, learn to think creatively and apply that thinking,
and GO FOR IT .
