The Golden Rule.


“O’ my child, make yourself the measure (for dealings) between you and others. Thus, you should desire for others what you desire for yourself and hate for others what you hate for yourself. Do not oppress as you do not like to be oppressed. Do good to others as you would like good to be done to you. Regard bad for yourself whatever you regard bad for others. Accept that (treatment) from others which you would like others to accept from you… Do not say to others what you do not like to be said to you.”Ali ibn Abi Talib-  Nahjul Balaghah

“…it has been shown that to injure anyone is never just anywhere.” – Socrates,

One who, while himself seeking happiness, oppresses with violence other beings who also desire happiness, will not attain happiness hereafter. Dhammapada

Beware lest ye harm any soul, or make any heart to sorrow; lest ye wound any man with your words, be he known to you or a stranger, be he friend or foe. `Abdu’l-Bahá

“Recognize that your neighbor feels as you do, and keep in mind your own dislikes.” Sirach 31:15

“What you do not wish for yourself, do not do to others.” Confucianism

The above are quotes regarding the;

The Golden Rule or ethic of reciprocity is a maxim, ethical code or morality that essentially states either of the following:

  • One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself. (Positive form)
  • One should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated (Negative form, also known as the Silver Rule)

the interesting thing is, that it is part of all faiths and ages.

If you guys recall I did this Project a while ago, which was relatively done in Photoshop, apart from the 3dmodel. However, this time, I needed to test some vegetation out and so I used the same design and tried it all in 3d. It is still in the practice phase, but I thought I would share them.

  1. Wow.The quotes are awesome.Frankly if we all start putting ourselves in other peoples shoes,there would be no fighting,domestic or otheerwise.*sigh*.life could be some much simpler if it weren’t for us!

  2. Sure, these houses, or structures is what I have designed. None of this is real or are not photographs. I design, build, render, these visuals all on the computer using certain software.

    For example : In the real world, architects give me their sketches or plan drawings, from which I have to create computer generated imagery to show them what it make appear if constructed. These are then taken for further refinements or presented to their clients.
