Understanding the Golden Rule "The Golden Rule is considered to
be the most prevalent and universal moral principle in history.
To reflect on the Golden Rule is to reflect from the perspective
of a universal wisdom. In this section, we examine the many dimensions
of the Golden Rule, also known as the "Ethic of Reciprocity".
Included is a statement from Jeffrey Wattles (author of one of
the best books about the Golden Rule) about the meaning of the

THE ‘GREEN RULE’ POSTER Ecological Wisdom from Some of the World's Faith
“Faith & the Common Good derived the Green Rule poster from
the classic Golden Rule found in major faith traditions. For the Green
Rule we are paraphrasing the Golden Rule by saying: "Do unto
the Earth as you would have it do unto you." Though just a tiny
sampling of the written and oral riches exclaiming the beauty and
holiness of the natural world, the Green Rules were chosen to demonstrate
that each religion and spiritual philosophy has a long-standing tradition
of ecological stewardship.”

religion on a leaf, for much more information, and to order the poster
