One of the things that attracted me to Active Rain is the way ideas flow freely back and forth.
There is room and need for a variety of opinions on MANY subjects here. Disagreement is the fertile ground for growth. Let's face it, if we all just "Lemming-ed" our way through life, we would all without question go over that big cliff.
Quite often people hold on to their opinions as if they are GOLD. But here on Active Rain I believe that the real GOLD is the open dialogue and understanding gained from it. The real Gold can be found as each of us as individuals chooses to apply, adapt, tweak, use, alter, integrate, or reject what they have learned from what has been shared here in the rain.
Disagrement with an idea/concept/approach/individual need not be disrespectful. The end result may be that you just agree to disagree.
These 12 expressions of 1 Golden Rule reminds us that we all can have varying approaches to our faith, our professions, our lives, and our opinions... but when it comes to relating to each other, one concept rises above all others. Following this 1 Golden Rule is the one place being a Lemming actually makes sense.
PS: I created these (using Active Rain Colors) for the free use of all.
