Rule #27

Choose how you make your bed

Every action you take, every decision you make, everything you do causes an immediate effect on those around you – and on you. And this is the important bit. There is such a thing as instant karma. It is your bed and you are going to have to lie in it. Your action will dictate whether in general your life is going to run happily or badly, smoothly or as if the wheels have fallen off. If you are selfish and manipulative it will rebound on you. If you are generally loving and thoughtful you will get your just reward – and not in heaven (or the next life or whatever you believe) but right here, right now. So be careful how you make your bed. What goes around, comes around. Do the right thing, every time. You know what it is.
