@Miraz Ah! Sorry, I didn’t notice before that the rule as you quoted it is a reversal of Hillel’s on a different axis, so to speak. Hillel basically said, Don’t do to others what you wouldn’t want done to you (which is the reverse, or “negative,” of the version Jesus says several times in the Scriptures: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.) Your reverse rule, on the other hand, is self-directed, which I absolutely love. Thank you! (And sorry I barged in on your conversation without having read more carefully.)
