Some Rules for Being Human

You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period, this time around.  Recognize that you have the power to change your body through nutrition and exercise.

You will have opportunities to learn. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called Life.  Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn.  You may like these opportunities or think them irrelevant and stupid.  We are all teachers and we are all learners in this adventure — take advantage of both positions!

There are no mistakes, only opportunities. Growth is a process of trial and error:  experimentation.  The so-perceived failed experiments are just as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately “work.”

Similar opportunities are repeated. Some opportunities will be presented to you in various forms until you have had ample chances to take advantage of them.  When you have grown through these opportunities you find you are ready to explore further.  Opportunities are very frequently presented simultaneously giving you freedom to build on what you previously learned.

Opportunities do not end. There is no part of life that does not contain its opportunities.  If you are alive, opportunities will continue to come to you.  Think of these as choices to grow, expand and share your wisdom.

“There” is no better than “here.” When your “there” has become a “here,” you simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here.”    This can become quite a circular route to take – enjoying the present time and place is much more restful.

Others are merely mirrors of YOU. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself.  This reflection can be your greatest teacher.

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 design of your life is all yours so have fun creating it.

Your answers lie inside you. The answers to Life’s questions lie inside you.  All you need do is look, listen, and trust.  Contemplate, meditate, get in touch with your inner self and truly trust that your intuition is a powerful guide.

Being You IS Being Human!
