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 have opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think
them irrelevant and stupid.
3. There are no mistakes, only lessons.
Growth is a process of trial and error, experimentation. The "failed" experiments
are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately "works".
4. A lesson is repeated until learned.
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it.
When you have learned it, you can then go on to the next lesson.
5. Learning lessons does not end.
There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive, there are
lessons to be learned.
6. "There" is no better place to be 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 simply mirrors of you.
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you
something you love or hate about yourself.
8. What you make of life is up to you.
You have the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to
you. The choice is yours.
9. Your answers lie inside you.
The answers to life's questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen
10. You will forget all this.
