Balance. Purpose. Enlightenment.
With the extreme conditions we are seeing more and more often, people everywhere long for reassurance and peace, and “We’re all one” may seem like a distant dream. So may it bring hope to consider that, with the core of goodness inside so much of humankind, a more inclusive and positive future is not only urgently needed, but entirely achievable. No matter where we live or what our beliefs, all of us have a common basis in the desire for freedom, security, and peace of mind. We’re all one, as reflected so well in the expression of the Golden Rule in seven world religions:
Christianity –– “All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.”
Confucianism –– “Do not unto others what you would not they should do to you.”
Buddhism –– “In five ways should a clansman minister to his friends and familiars – by generosity, courtesy and benevolence, by treating them as he treats himself, and by being as good as his word.”
Hinduism –– “Do not to others, which if done to thee would cause thee pain.”
Islam –– “No one of you is a believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.”
Judaism –– “What is hurtful to yourself, do not to your fellow man.”
Taoism –– “Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain and regard your neighbor’s loss as your own loss.”
With this universal principle as a basis, and to help bring us together in friendship and harmony, wise and understanding Masters have supplied the essential information we need in the Lemurian Philosophy. It is based on principles that apply to all people, no matter what race, color, or belief. Within it are plans for a magnificent program that will culminate in the Kingdom of God –– a civilization that must first be built within each of us with every kind and positive thought and action. Within it, all will live and work together in harmony and for the greatest good of all, knowing that only in this way may they earn these spiritual treasures for themselves.
If this sounds like a Utopian scheme to you, you may be encouraged to know that Lemurian principles have been used before to build a harmonious civilization that endured for thousands of years. And as we begin to transmute our present civilization into a more ideal one, Lemurian students have been living and working together using these principles in Southern California for over sixty years. They are proving the validity and efficacy of this way of life and are actively earning a place in the coming civilization. You can too!
May you be reassured by the thought that we’re all one and affected by each other whether near or far. As we take hold of the guidance of those greater than ourselves, together we can build a more peaceful today and work together for a better tomorrow.

Isn’t that what our creator and Yeshua (Jesus) teaches us to do?
Earlier in my Lemurian studies, I unknowingly found myself trying to manipulate the Golden Rule by doing things that would possibly fulfill my selfish wants and desires, such as, giving money with the hope of getting more in return, and being nice to people just to influence their behavior to my satisfaction. I have since learned that for the best results, this Law must be practiced with a selfless consideration for others, and a sincere desire for the greatest good of all, which may or may not be to my understanding or satisfaction.
Good observation Michael. There’s no doubt all of us have done this, knowingly or, as you say, unknowingly.
Being a student of the Lemurian Philosophy has taught me that my time and energy is best spent working to improve my own personal flaws and weaknesses so that I may mold myself into someone more representative of the teachings of Christ and the Elder Brothers. My assigned teachers do much to help me in my efforts and are inspiring representatives of the teachings themselves. If the same amount of energy which went into criticizing and judging others was directed towards self, oh what progress humanity would make!
Very well said, Barbara.
For me, it takes constant effort to try and keep the many distractions of life and bad habits I have from diverting my time and energy away from what’s truly important — working to become a better person.
I appreciate the Fellowship’s reposting last week of some inspirational articles on Ancient Wisdom.
When I first learned that the Golden Rule was taught in other religions and philosophies it made a significant and positive impact on me. The best teachings and principles handed down to us from various sources will remain valid and be the foundation of future greatness for humankind.
I can attest that the above statement is true and is being validated by my life as a student of the Lemurian Philosophy. All that I now wish and strive for is that others can, in their own time, acknowledge the same thing.
As with most profound Truths, the Golden Rule is easy to understand but hard to practice. It is worth the effort as “No man is an Island” and being focused on yourself while ignoring or looking down on others is not helpful. We are all a part of a family, a community, a state, a country and all of humanity. Anything I can do to improve my character makes life easier for myself and those around me…like a pebble thrown in a lake, the ripples eventually reach the shoreline.
It is hard to practice, and sometimes, even hard to understand. For instance, someone enjoys being kidded, so they kid others so much they drive their friends crazy. It could seem like the Golden Rule doesn’t work in a case like this, but isn’t it because this person is viewing it too narrowly? In a broader view, what all of us actually want others to do to us is what we like and appreciate. So kidding someone when they don’t enjoy being kidded, is really not following the Golden Rule. Instead, we need to find out what they would like us to do. Which does make following this law harder!
