The 12 Rules For Being Human


1. You will receive a body.
Make peace with it or fight a life long war, the choice is yours and yours alone.

2. You will learn lessons.
Every day is a school day; you will never live a day without learning about someone, something or yourself. Pay attention.

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons.
No wrong move was wasted or should be thought of with regret. It all made you the person you are now and that is a road worth walking.

4. A lesson is repeated until learned.
If you feel that you are banging your head against a brick wall, you are. Stop, listen to life showing you the patterns you are repeating and break the chain. Let it go.

5. Learning lessons does not end.
You are never ‘done’. There is always something new to realise or a part of your soul to free. Cherish that, it’s your purpose.

6. ”There” is no better than “here.”
You will always want more if more is what you seek. Look around you, make peace with your present and your future will unfold just as it should.


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.
Where or how you are born is unimportant. You have everything you need to create anything you desire. It’s only you that holds you back. Only you.

9. Life is exactly what you think it is.
If you start believing in yourself and projecting the things you want, instead of wasting time worrying, you will see that your life is exactly what you make it.

10. Your answers lie inside you.
The answers to life’s questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust. Dig deep, it’s in there. It was always in there.

11. You will forget all this.

12. You can remember it whenever you want.
