The rules for being human

1. You will receive a body.
You may like it or you may hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period of this time around. So, get use to it and love it.

2. You will learn lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called "Life". Each day you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lesson or think them irrelevant and stupid.
You may leave the school without passing all the lessons, but then you will have to study again in another school or in another way.

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons.
Growth is a process of trial and error. There is no punishment, unless you punish yourself.

4. A lesson is repeated until learned.
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms (and lives) until you have learned it. When you've learned your lesson, then you can go to the next level. Just like a computer game :)

5. Learning lessons does not end.
If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned :) If after your death there will unlearned lessons for you spirit, you are coming again :)

6. "There" is not better then "Here".
When your "there" will become a "here", you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better then "here".

7. 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.

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 all yours.

9. Your answers are inside you.
The answers to Life's questions are inside you. All you need is to look inside, listen in quite and trust yourself.

10. You will forget all this and start again and again and again ... the circle won't stop until you want it and do something about it.

PS: M-am apucat sa citesc o carte. Mai rar dar mi se mai intimpla.
Spre marea mea mirare ... imi pare interesanta :)
Se numeste Chicken Soup for the Soul (101 stories to open the heart and rekindle the spirit).
Regulile sunt de acolo, insa eu le-am mai comentat un pic.
