The Rules For Being Human . . . (Anonymous)
1. You will receive a body
You may like it or hate it, but it is yours for your entire
period on earth.
2. 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.
3. 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."
4. A lesson is repeated until it is learned
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms
until you have learned it. When you have learned
it then you can move on to the next lesson.
5. 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
6. "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.
7. Others are simply mirrors of you
You cannot love or hate something about another
person unless it reflects to you something you love
or hate about yourself.
8. What you make of your life is up to you
You have the tools and resources you need, what
you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.
9. The answers lie inside of you
The answers to life's questions lie inside of you.
All you need to do is look, listen and trust.
10. You will forget all this.
