Most of life, if not all, is living with or without agreements which can be non-verbal as well as verbal and can be written, too.
The do unto others as you would want to be treated concept goes along way with living in and with Truth. Sooner or later we catch up to Truth and I do believe Truth has a way sometimes of catching up with us, too. It is a marvelous thing to watch a baby being born, nuzzle and cling to its mother. It is also quite obvious when that mother nudges that young away to grow and mature on his own. Mother still loves and does so perhaps more so with a deeper, fuller heart.
In seeking the Truth, we discover ourselves. In finding the Truth, we define ourselves.
