RULES FOR BEING A HUMAN BEING.

No one knows who wrote this thought-provoking list, which has been around for years and years, but we wanted to share it with you. Here are the ten rules for being a human being.   WOMEN - ORNATE, BEJEWELLED.

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 the 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 and 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 may go to the next lesson.

5. Learning 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 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 merely 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 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. Your answers lie inside you. The answers to life’s questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

10. You will forget all of this.

THE GREAT DICTATOR’S SPEECH. 

I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone – if possible – Jew, Gentile – black man – white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that.  SPIRITUAL - GREAT DICTATORS SPEECH

We want to live by each other’s happiness – not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.

Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little.

More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost….

– Charlie Chaplin

“SOUL AGE”. An Interesting Theoretical Perspective.

Soul Age

As we reincarnate from lifetime to lifetime on our soul’s journey — gathering experiences, learning lessons, and fulfilling agreements — an evolutionary process transpires and that course of development is called, Soul Age. 

Soul age refers to how a person has grown from experience on the planet, not just to how many lifetimes he or she has lived. No person is “ahead” or “behind” any other, but is simply occupying another place in the continuous circle leading to and from the Tao.

Each soul age brings a unique perspective and an array of lessons that offer experience, individual choice, and ultimately, the opportunity to learn and evolve.

During this cycle of incarnations, the soul progresses through five soul age stages on the physical plane. Each stage is a mark of the soul’s evolution. 

CHILD - THERMAL IMAGE

The Soul Age Stages

  • Infant Souls deal with issues of survival; they do not yet have a basis for making sense of what is “out there”—they only know that it is “not me.” Infant souls often live on the fringes of society, and their experience of life is simple, earthy, primitive, and mystical. Without loving guidance from older souls who teach them the difference between right and wrong, Infant souls may react violently to perceived threats. 

Focus: Survival 

  • Baby Souls  have a need for structure and tend to live according to beliefs based on dogma, such as religious fundamentalism. Baby souls, focused as they are on bringing people together under the umbrella of civilization, see others, as being “just like me.” They can become confused and upset when those “other me’s” act differently than expected. Their experience of life is rule-based, rigid, dogmatic, family-oriented, and highly structured around adhering to the laws and mores of an institution or culture — think of the Middle West and the conscientious drive to be the “model citizen.”

Focus: Rules/Laws

  • Young Souls  are success oriented and set high standards of personal achievement. Young souls are learning to impact the world, and see others as “you”s they can impact. Their experience of life is competitive, industrious, independent, profit-motivated, win-lose, and in pursuit of anything that leads to prosperity. They fear aging, the natural decline of their bodies, and go to great lengths to preserve their status and appearance. Young souls could be the official soul age for face-lifts, Botox injections, and tummy-tucks.

Focus: Success/Achievement

  • Mature Souls are relationship oriented and tend to gravitate toward emotional drama. Mature souls, delving into their inner world and exploring relatedness, can keenly feel other people’s “stuff,” and perceive it in the same way they perceive their own. This can make for much intensity and, often, subjectivity. Their experience of life is dramatic, emotional, soap-opera-like, identified, intimate, empathetic, and self-aware.

Focus: Relationships

  • Old Souls seek the larger perspective of life, and have less interest in playing the material game. They tend to be more detached, and try to see themselves and others within a larger context, fostering a “live and let live” motto. Their experience of life is laid-back, easy going, detached from emotional intensity, spiritually-minded, and sometimes a little lazy.

    Focus: The Big Picture; Philosophical Perspective

SUMMARY

  • Infant: Lets not do it.
     
  • Baby: Do it right or don’t do it at all.
     
  • Young: Do it my way.
     
  • Mature: Do it anyplace but here. 
     
  • Old: You do what you want and I’ll do what I want.
