RULES FOR BEING HUMAN

As far as learning to be human goes, the following Rules could well be those
given to us before we were born, in order to to guide us through this life.


1. You will receive a body. You will like it or hate it, but it will be yours
for the entire period you're around.


2. You will learn lessons. You are already enrolled in the full-time informal
school called life. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to
learn more. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid. That
is your choice.


3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and
error, mingled with occasional short-cuts learned from watching others. The
"failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the choices which
ultimately "work."


4. A lesson is repeated until it is learned. Each 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.


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


6. "THERE" is no better than "HERE." When your "There" has become "Here," you
will simply discover another "There" that again will look better than "Here."


7. Others are mostly mirrors of yourself. You cannot love or hate something
about another person unless it reflects on something you love or hate about
yourself. If you hurt someone else you are ultimately hurting yourself.


8. Your answers to life's questions lie inside you. You simply need to listen
and trust. (If you are a Christian, the voice of the Spirit will come from
within as well. If you are not a believer, heaven help you!)


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


10. You will forget all this.
