We have learned that your subconscious mind is a recording machine, which faithfully reproduces whatever you impress upon it. This is one reason for applying the Golden Rule in human relationships and the subconscious mind. The good book and many others say, All things whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, do ye even so to them.
This quotation has outer and inner meanings. You are interested in its inner meaning from your subconscious mind’s standpoint, which is: As you would that men should think about you, think you about them in like manner. As you would that men should feel about you, feel you also about them in like way. As you would want men to act toward you, act you toward them in like manner.
For example, you may be polite and courteous to someone in your office, but you are very critical and resentful toward him in your mind when his back is turned. Such negative thoughts are highly destructive to you. It is like taking poison. You are taking mental toxins, which rob you of vitality, enthusiasm, strength, guidance, and goodwill. These negative thoughts and emotions sink into your subconscious and cause all kinds of difficulties and disorders in your life.
The master key to happy relationships with others
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, shall measure it to you again. (source the excellent book). A study of these verses and applying the inner truths therein contained represent the real key to harmonious relations. To judge is to think, to arrive at a mental verdict or conclusion in your mind.
The thought you have about the other person is your thought because you are thinking it. Your ideas are creative; therefore, you create in your own experience what you think and feel about the other person. It is also true that the suggestion you give to another, you give to yourself because your mind is the creative medium.
This is why it is said, For with what judgment ye judge, considered shall ye. When you know this law and how your subconscious mind works, you are careful to think, feel, and act rightfully toward the other. These verses teach you about man’s emancipation and reveal to you the solution to your problems.
And with what measure ye mete, shall measure it to you again.
The good you do for others comes back to you in like measure, and the evil you do returns to you by the law of your mind. If a man cheats and deceives another, he is cheating and deluding himself. His sense of guilt and mood of loss inevitably will attract loss to him in some way, at some time. His subconscious records his mental act and reacts according to the mental intention or motivation.
Your subconscious mind is impersonal and unchanging, neither considering persons nor respecting religious affiliations or institutions of any kind. It is neither compassionate nor vindictive. The way you think, feel, and act toward others returns at last upon yourself.
Becoming emotionally mature
The other person says or does not annoy or irritate you, except you permit him to disturb you. The only way he can upset you is through your thought. For example, if you get angry, you have to go through four stages in your mind: You begin to think about what he said. You decide to get angry and generate an emotion of rage. Then, you choose to act. Perhaps, you talk back and react in kind.
You see that the thought, emotion, reaction, and action all take place in your mind. When you become emotionally mature, you do not respond negatively to the criticism and resentment of others. To do so would mean that you had descended to that state of low mental vibration and become one with the other’s hostile atmosphere. Identify yourself with your aim in life, and do not permit any person, place, or thing to deflect you from your inner sense of peace, tranquility, and radiant health.
The meaning of love in harmonious human relations
Sigmund Freud, an Austrian founder of psychoanalysis, said that it sickens and dies unless the personality has love. Love includes understanding, goodwill, and respect for the divinity in the other person. The more love and charity you emanate and exude, the more comes back to you. If you puncture the other fellow’s ego and wound his estimate of himself, you cannot gain his goodwill.
Recognize that every person wants to be loved and appreciated and made to feel important in the world. Please realize that the other person is conscious of his true worth and that, like yourself, he feels the dignity of being an expression of the One Life Principle animating all men. As you do this consciously and knowingly, you build the other person up, and he returns your love and goodwill.
It takes two to tango; it is a give and takes situation, a transfer of energy. It all starts with your desire to share harmoniously, being positive and reinforcing every day the beauty of life as we create, and so it is.
