Do me a favor and for a moment, picture a tree.

Now when it comes to your personal life, how does this come in to play?
I’ll tell you.
The way you view the outside world and everything that happens to you, is a direct reflection of what is happening inside of you. All of the negativity and the hate that you see around you, more so shines light on what is going on internally than externally.

Is it the Golden Rule? Treat others as though you wish you be treated?
No. In fact, it is the Platinum Rule. Live your life with an understanding that everyone and everything around you IS you.
Look at what bothers you most about people, and you may just find that same issue is what bothers you about yourself.
Keep this in mind for the next week, act on it, and watch as your external world slowly begins to shift in correspondence with the changes you’re making to your internal world.
