How often do you play by the rules?

My son believes that the real test of integrity is giving yourself a penalty shot while playing a round of golf alone. No one is watching but you.

In essence calling a penalty on yourself is the definition of true nobility because it’s not about being better than anyone else; it’s about being better than you use to be. You are not dominated by your ego’s demands to accomplish and triumph.

I thought about playing by the rules as I read through the weekend newspapers. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and by the number of crimes reported it seems no one believes in playing by the rules anymore. From the ranks of the privileged and elite like Bernie Madoff to a man wearing a skeleton facemask who attempted to rob a car wash with a toy gun, no one is immune. All that matters is “what’s in it for me.”

I have to wonder how will we survive times of crisis if it’s only about “me.” Inevitably there has to be a collective agreement if only on a subconscious level that we are all going to play by the rules. But what exactly are these so-called rules?

Society demands certain rules to protect us but there are deeper universal laws that keep us in harmony with our better selves. These laws expect we will always call a penalty when necessary.

The law of karma is the most important law. The purpose of this law is to attract harmony and balance in your life. Through your intentions, thoughts, emotions, words and deeds you create karma. You must decide what lessons you need to learn in this life.

The law of wisdom is knowing what you have the power to change and what you don’t. Through this wisdom every karmic issue will be resolved.

The law of evolution is the only way to gain wisdom. This law means you must conquer the demands of your ego and emotions by learning from your mistakes. It’s important to know that a lesson not learned is a lesson that is repeated.
