Ten Rules for Being Human

You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period.

You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, "life."

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."

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.

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.

"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 than "here."

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 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.

Your answers lie within you. The answers to life’s questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

You will forget all this.

  2. It seems to me that no matter how much we think we know there’s always something new to learn. It’s quite amazing that we can never feel sure about what we are doing in this life. We follow paths we have followed before that we think will work again just because they worked in the past but life is not that easy. We look back and realize how much we have learned over the years, how different things would be if we knew the things we know now.

  3. Very well written words.  When I wrote " Space is only as deep as one makes it".  I thought that a simple quote could sum things up.  Not so in life.  The experience of the terrible beauty of the universe astoundes me each and every day, if not each and every moment.  Enough for now.  This old painter and sometimes bad poet is off to dinner.  Smile.  Be well.  Stephen Craig Rowe
