Fundamental Human Truths

1. You will receive a body.
You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.

2. You will learn lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called Life.
Each day in this school you will be given the opportunity to learn lessons.
You may like the lessons or consider them irrelevant and stupid.

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 one that ultimately "works".

4. A lesson is repeated until learned.
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until it has been learned.
When you have learned it, you can then proceed to the next lesson.

5. There is no end to learning lessons.
There is no part of life that does not contain a lesson.
If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

6. "There" is no better place than "Here".
When your "there" has become a "here" you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here".

7. 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 in yourself.

8. What you make of your work and 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. The answers are inside you.
The answer's to life's questions are inside you.
All you need to do is look, listen and trust.

10. You will forget this.
