Soul Food  – The Ten Rules for Being Human

You Will Receive A Body
You may love it or hate it, but it will be yours for the duration of your life on Earth.

You Will Be Presented With Lessons
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called “life.” Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or hate them, but you have designed them as part of your curriculum.

There Are No Mistakes, Only Lessons
Growth is a process of experimentation, a series of trials, errors, and occasional victories. The failed experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that work.

Lessons Are Repeated Until Learned
Lessons will repeated to you in various forms until you have learned them. When you have learned them, you can then go on to the next lesson.

Learning Does Not End.
There is no part of life that does not contain lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

“There” Is Not Better Than “Here.”
When your “there” has become a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will look better to you than your present “here.”

Others Are Only Mirrors Of You.
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects 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.

All The Answers Lie Inside Of You.
All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

You Will Forget All Of This At Birth
You can remember it if you want by unraveling the double helix of inner knowing.

From If Life is a Game, These are the Rules, ) 1998 by Cherie Carter-Scott, published in the UK in 1999 by Hodder & Stoughton.

Cherie Carter-Scott
The ‘Ten Rules for Being Human’ are an expression of universal wisdom that, once understood and embraced, can contribute endlessly to the spiritualisation of our everyday life. This very welcome book is a collection of thoughtful, inspirational essays, in which Cherie explores these ‘rules’ in more depth, showing how vastly they can enhance our respect, forgiveness, acceptance, compassion, humility, gratitude and courage – in short, how they can become a road to the realisation of our truest Self. ‘Each lesson you learn in your lifetime will open doorways to your own sense of limitlessness. There is no limit to your compassion or patience, nor to your willingness, commitment, tolerance, or any other pocket of understanding you reach into. You have infinite permission to love, to grow, and to remember all the wisdom within you.’
