Richard Mayberry, in his book "Whatever Happened To Justice?", gives us two basic laws:
- Do everything you have agreed to do
- Don't encroach on anyone or their property
FLS comes from people believing that they can get something for nothing. They are ignorant of the spiritual laws that also govern us. Truth is, we all pay for everything we ever get. Karma is the great balancer. If you cheat or defraud someone for profit, sooner or later you will be the victim. It really is easier just to earn (or pay for) everything up front; then there are no worries.
Honesty is the best policy. Let's teach that to our kids instead of fighting over evolution or banning books in our schools.
Remember the basics and keep it simple. If we can change our mindset to accept these two principles -- and live them -- we can make the world a more beautiful place to live. Like Lynyrd Skynyrd said in their song, "Simple Man": Be a simple kind of man. Be something you love and understand.
It's all so simple.
