The problem with ‘do unto others’

The problem with the idea of ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’ is that it makes one better than the other. It places your values above someone else’s, your preferences above someone else’s, your ideas above someone else’s. It says what I know is best and I will help you to conform to my way of being. It’s the Colonialists approach to the world.

A more attention out approach is to do unto others as they want to have done unto them.

Put what they want at the heart of what you do in relation to them. This stops the barriers going up between people and enables us to connect.

As always I’d appreciate your comments on this here.
