What of the Laws? Let us consider the “similarities” of the different Masters for it is
interesting to you, perhaps, to discover the many versions of that basic natural Law of all rational human conduct, that Law referred to in the Western world as the “Golden Rule”.


Major religions of the world teach this “rule” so let us look at it closely as to its various

Christianity: All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do you even
so to them; for this is the Law and the prophets. [R.M.: and said another way, “Do
unto others as you would have them do unto you.”]

Judaism: What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellowmen. This is the entire Law:
all the rest is commentary. See, no “eye for eye” or “tooth for tooth” written for and by MAN.  Simply put” What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowmen.

Brahmanism: This is the sum of duty: Do naught unto other which would cause you
pain if done to you.

Buddhism: Hurt not others in ways you would find hurtful.

Confucianism: Surely it is the maxim of loving-kindness: Do not unto others that you
would not have them do unto you.

Taoism: Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain, and your neighbor’s loss as
your own loss.

Zoroastrianism: The nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto another
whatsoever is not good for itself.

Islam: No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he
desires for himself.

Considering the fact that this Law has been known and understood by some for thousands of years, in the name of common sense why is this natural Law not being taught as such in every school and every grade, in every cult, church and temple–in every country of the world?

Why isn’t it being adopted as Rule #1 in every new organization, effort, committee, or plan – whenever a group of people relate to each other?
