Dr. Chérie Carter-Scott's Rules of Life
Rule One - 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.
Rule Two - 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.
Rule Three - 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 as a part of the process as the experiments that work.
Rule Four - The lesson is repeated until learned.
Lessons will be repeated to you in various forms until you
have learned them. When you have learned them, you can
go on to the next lesson.
Rule Five - 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.
Rule Six - "There" is no better than "here".
When your "there" has become "here" you will simply
obtain another "there" that will look better to you than
your present "here".
Rule Seven - 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.
Rule Eight - 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.
Rule Nine - Your answers lie inside of you.
All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
Rule Ten - You will forget all this at birth.
You can remember it if you want by unraveling the double
helix of inner-knowing.
