Life Is Teaching Us

I learn quickly and easily.
I am open and willing to see my choices.
I am guided by the Light and led by Love.
I know what I want and I go for it.

Life is the teacher.
You are the student.
Everyone and everything is teaching you.
Are you open and willing to learn?

First we must take care of our bodies and minds to learn well.
Healthy food and good work for the body and mind.
No drugs, or mind changing substances to be really awake.
Getting enough, sleep, sunshine, fresh air, movement and laughter.

We must have support and encouragement to learn easily.
Positive conversations and respectful relationships  are essential.
Time to be quiet, to read, reflect, meditate and just be grateful.
Love, laughter, enjoyment, inspiration and just plain fun.

We must be motivated to learn in order to achieve something better.
We need to know everything is possible.
We must believe we can improve ourselves and our lives.
We must trust that we can do what we aspire to do for ourselves.

We must be inspired by our teachers and the lessons they teach.
When learning from a parent or school teacher, a book or a life experience, we must see the point.
What we learn must matter to us in order to pay attention and learn.
Life must offer inspiration, insight, opportunity, creative potential to be received with respect and joy.

Are you learning?
What are you learning?
How are you learning?
For what benefit have your learned?

Mistakes and ignorance teach us, too.
Mistakes show us what doesn’t work.
Negativity and ignorance show us how bad it feels to be negative and ignorant.
The experience of what we don’t want gives us the motivation to choose for what we do want.

When we see what we don’t want, we can learn to erase and delete and choose again.
When we speak in ways that are unkind and disrespectful, we can forgive and choose better.
When we try to make life better, we can see what went wrong.
We must be awake to see how everything works.

Learning from you what I can do to Live and Love wiser and better!

Rules For Being Human
 (from an old Ann Landers syndicated newspaper column)
    You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for as long as you live. How you take care of it or fail to take care of it can make an enormous difference in the quality of your life.
    You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time school called Life. Each day, you will be presented with opportunities to learn what you need to know. The lessons presented are often completely different from those you THINK you need.
    There are no mistakesonly lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error and experimentation. You can learn as much from failure as you can from success.
    A lesson is repeated until it is learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it (as evidenced by a change in your attitude and behavior), then you can go on to the next lesson.
    Learning lessons does not end. There is no stage of life that does not contain some lessons. As long as you live, there will be something more to learn.
    There” is no better than “here”. When your “there” has become a “here”, you will obtain another “there” that will again look better than your “here”. Don’t be fooled by believing that the unattainable is better than what you have.
    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. When tempted to criticize others, ask yourself why you feel so strongly.
    What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. Remember that through desire, goal-setting and unflagging effort, you can have anything you want. Persistence is the key to success.
    The answers lie within you. The solutions to all of life’s problems lie within your grasp. All you need to do is ask, look, listen and trust.
•   You will forget all this. Unless you consistently stay focused on the goals you have set for yourself, everything you’ve just read won’t mean a thing.
