A few years ago I read somewhere a saying, or a quote and felt that this one was important to me.
I wrote it down in my calendar and read it now and then.
I have tried to live by it, and to have it as a kind of yardstick, a motto.
And I also notice that the people I meet and I connect with, either who become my friends or never to meet again, (but who gave me something like an insight or other kind of help and hopefully I helped them too in one way), they probably live by the same principles.
Do you want to know the saying?
The karmic effect is great when you go honest, helpful, transparent and authentic.
It is great, right?
I googled the saying
because I wanted to know who coined it and where it came from. It turned out that it is from James Redfield, who wrote the popular book, The Celestine Prophecy, which became an international bestseller for two years in a row when it came out in the mid-1990s.
I know that I bought and read the book then, but probably could not really take it in. It went over my head, I guess. I have to look it up and re-read it.
Aren’t people wonderful
who act just like they are – authentic? And moreover honest and helpful, too?
Imagine what kind of society we would have if everyone helped each other without a hidden agenda?
