Ten Rules for Being Human
by Cherie Carter-Scott
|1.||You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for |
the entire period.
|2.||You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, |
|3.||There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the |
process as the experiments that ultimately “work.”
|4.||Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A 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’s no part of life that doesn’t contain |
its lessons. If you’re alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.
|6.||“There” is no better a place than “here.” When your “there” has become |
a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better
|7.||Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something |
about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate
|8.||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.
|9.||Your answers lie within you. The answers to life’s questions lie within you. |
All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
|10.||You will forget all this.|
#4 - I do see that there are patterns, or lessons that keep getting presented to me. I might as well suck it up and learn 'em, because the avoidance thing did not work out for me.
#7 - I'm not sure that other people are always mirrors. However, I have noticed that others are most impatient with the flaws of others that they themselves possess. (I've noticed it myself doing this sometimes - which means either I don't do it as often, or, more likely, that I don't catch myself doing it as often as I do.)
#10 - What was that again?
Did these life rules ring any bells for you?
What struck you the most - or least - true?
