Rules for Being Human

author: unknown

You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period of this time around.

You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called life. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.

There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error, experimentation. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately "works".

A lesson is repeated until learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can then go on to the next lesson.

Learning lessons does not end. There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

THERE is no better than HERE. When your THERE has become a HERE, you will simply obtain another THERE that will, again, look better than HERE.

Others are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

Each person learns their own lessons at their own pace. That's why others resist taking your advice.

You create your own reality. No matter what reality you are in, you alone are responsible for creating what you DO about it. If you don't like it, you can change it. This is merely one lesson.

You always have options. No one else is responsible for limiting your options, only you.

The most powerful force you have is what you say to yourself and believe. That's how you create a reality. Be careful what you say to yourself.

What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

Your answers lie inside you. The answers to life's questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
