Yield Its A Matter Of Courtesy – You’re driving home from work. Your workload has been keeping you up all night and now you have to deal with rush hour traffic. The signals at the four-way intersection ahead are not working. Traffic is crawling slowly. Out of the corner of your eyes you see a car from a parking lot headed for the space right in front of you. You tell yourself that you have been there longer, they have to wait. To keep from making eye contact you stare forward, look down at the radio, glance at your mirrors and curse the flashing lights. The space in front of you opens up and you yield to them. Why? Because when you were growing up, your parents or your teachers taught you the Golden Rule, “Treat others as you would treat yourself.” Now that they are in, you receive a thank you wave and you wave back to them.
Now it’s your turn. You just filled up and you need to enter the traffic flow. When you pull up you make eye contact with the driver you think to yourself, this isn’t going to happen. Yet you see them waving you in with a smile. You are surprised and relieved. There are those who are still courteous enough to yield the right-of-way. This is the perfect application of Karma. “What goes around – comes around.” You give thank them with a wave and they wave back. No one has the right-of-way. Its not a birthright, you don’t buy it online; you can’t get it at the store. The right-of-way is a given not a taken. If you combine the Golden Rule with Karma, you get, The Carma Rule, “Treat others as you would treat yourself so that what goes around comes around.”
