HIDDEN SCIENCE 20 OF 25 - PRINCIPLE OF ONE GOD - LAW OF RECIPROCITY

The Golden Rule or law of reciprocity is the principle of treating others as one would wish to be treated. It is a maxim of altruism seen in many human religions and human cultures. ... What you wish upon others, you wish upon yourself (empathic or responsive form). 

The Golden Rule differs from the maxim of reciprocity captured in do ut des—"I give so that you will give in return"—and is rather a unilateral moral commitment to the well-being of the other without the expectation of anything in return.

The concept occurs in some form in nearly every religion and ethical tradition
