Notice that the pain you receive is in direct proportion to the pain that you inflict.
Perhaps not with the same participants, but none the less equal!
Likewise the love, money, accolades and respect are similarly in equal proportion.
Therefore the measurement of what you receive lies solely within your control.
And becomes purely a gauge of your desires.
Observe your results and you clearly see a reflection of your actions and desires!
Simply put what you give.............you also receive!
