Rules For Being Human
Remember That Life Is a Wonderful and Mysterious Adventure!
YOU WILL RECEIVE A BODY.
You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.
YOU WILL LEARN LESSONS.
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called “life.” Each day in this school you will learn lessons.
You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant or stupid.
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.”
A LESSON IS REPEATED UNTIL IT IS LEARNED.
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it.
Then you can go on to the next lesson.
THERE IS NO BETTER THAN HERE.
When your “there” has become a “here,” you will simply obtain
another “there” that again looks better than “here.”
OTHERS ARE MERELY MIRRORS OF YOU.
You cannot 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.
THE ANSWERS LIE INSIDE YOU.
The answers to life’s questions lie inside you.
All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
YOU WILL FORGET ALL OF THIS.
By Chérie Carter-Scott.
Universal “Pop Quiz”
As we go along in life there seems to be “pop quizzes” that occur to see if we have really learned anything. The same lesson is presented again to allow deeper learning, to see if we have greater perspective, less compulsive or self-destructive responses, and more love for ourselves and others—to check if we have evolved during earth’s schoolroom.
Sometimes I do well and at other times I resist these pop quizzes and become frustrated. If I haven’t learned the lesson, it seems to repeat again. Over time, I’m much better. Yay! I’ve learned a whole new series of life-management skills.
