Ten additional invariant laws of the universe.

Post 414 - Cleaning out my office files over the weekend, I came across some more invariant laws of the universe. In case you're interested, here they are:

1. You will receive a body.
You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period you're here 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'll have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or you may think them irrelevant and stupid, but the lessons will continue.

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 experiments that ultimately "work."

4. A lesson is repeated until it is learned.
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you've learned it. When you've learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.

5. Learning lessons never ends.
There is no part of life that doesn't contain its lessons. As long as you're alive, there are lessons to be learned.

6. "There" is no better than "here."
When your "there" has become a "here," you will simply find another "there" that will, again, look better than "here."

7. Others are your mirrors.
You can't hate or love something about another person unless it reflects to you something that you love or hate about yourself.

8. 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. The choice is yours.

9. The answers lie inside you.
The answers to life's questions are inside you. All you have to do is listen and trust.

10. You will forget all this from time to time.
