If the universe is infinite, where is the center of the universe?

Most people believe that THEY are the center of the universe.

If you are the center of your own universe, then each person is likewise the center of their own universe, right?

That means that eventually your universe will intersect with someone else’s right?

Everyone’s universe is intertwined with everyone else’s. What you do affects everyone that you are around.

Because of this, you must have R-E-S-P-E-C-T for others.

Your right to risk

Last week, three innocent people were walking down the street when a driver veered off the road, killing 2 of them and severely injuring the third. The driver was texting.

I was stopped at a light when a texting driver rear-ended me. Luckily, no one was hurt, but my Tic-Tac suffered rear-end damage that has permanently decreased its value.

I worked for a gentleman once who lost his only child to a drunk driver one week before her high school graduation.

You have the right put your own life at risk, but you do not have the right to decide to risk someone else’s life.

You don’t have the right to speed through residential neighborhoods because you are late for an appointment. Your children may not live there, but someone else’s do.

A car is a lethal weapon. Drive responsibly.

RESPECT

You do not have the right to use someone else’s lawn as a toilet for your dog or a garbage can.

You do not have the right to disturb your neighbor’s peace because you haven’t trained your dogs not to bark while you are at work.

You do not have the right to interfere with someone else’s enjoyment of a movie, concert, or class because you want to talk on your cell. You did not pay for their ticket.

You do not have the right to scratch someone’s car because you were too lazy or busy to use the cart return.

You do not have the right to offend others with inappropriate language. You can decide to expose your own children to that kind of talk, but other people have the right not to expose their children, wives, etc.

What we do affects others. We are obligated to take the lives of other people into consideration when we act. Not to do so plants seeds of selfishness and we will reap what we sow.

    The Dalai Lama says that if you can’t do good for another, at least do no harm. When I’m acting out of selfishness I’m not thinking of others. And my actions can cause harm. That’s why it’s so important for us to be kind to each other- we have to counter-act the negativity.
