Rules For Being Human ...

Postby Jackie Olsen » Thu Oct 29, 1998 1:49 pm

1. You will receive a body. Love it or hate it, its yours for this entire lifetime.

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

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately works. We need to teach the child that its ok to make mistakes. We learn from our mistakes, the mistakes of others, and from the mistakes of our teachers. Eventually we learn to do without making mistakes.

4. A lesson is repeated until learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you've learned it. Only then can you go onto the next lesson.

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

6. "There" is no better than "Here." When your "there" becomes a "here," you will simply obtain another "there" that will, again look better than "here."

7. Others are 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 all the tools and resources right now that you need. What you do with them is up to you ... the choice is yours.

9. Your answers lie inside of you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
