"RULES FOR BEING HUMAN"


You will receive a body.
You may like it or hate it,
but it's yours to keep
for the entire period.



You will learn lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time,
informal school called life.



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



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



Learning lessons does not end.
There is no part of life that doesn't
contain it's lessons.
If you're alive,
there are still lessons to be learned.



"There" is no better than "here".
When your "there" has become "here",
you will simply obtain another "there"
that will again look better than "here".



Other people are merely mirrors of you.
You can not love or hate something
about another person unless it reflects to you
something you love or hate about 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.
