This is something I have had for years and valued. The paper it was printed on is about to pass, so I figured I would save it here, and share it with all of you. Enjoy.

Rules for Being Human

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

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

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

4. 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.

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 learned.

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 merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something 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 resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. Your answers lie inside 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.

I realized after typing rule 10 that it has been so long since I have thought of this, that I in turn did follow that last rule. Maybe I can remember for awhile longer yet!

Very Cool
