Not just the easiest
Taking the easy way out does not usually end up being very easy. Taking the easy way out in the short run will make things much more difficult in the long run.
You have the choice to completely deal with each problem when it arises. That’s much better, and ultimately easier, than simply delaying the consequences until later.
You have the ability to speak the truth, and to take responsibility for your actions. In the end, that’s easier than making increasingly difficult efforts to hide who you are and what you’ve done.
The life you experience in the future is determined by the way you act right now. Consider each of your choices in light of its overall impact on your life, not just based on what’s easiest for the moment.
The quick and easy answers can often lead to lingering, difficult consequences. The way to live a life that’s good is to honestly work through the difficulties rather than avoid them.
You deserve the best in life, and not just the easiest, least effective answers. You deserve the richness and fulfillment that a life of responsibility brings.

Rules For Being Human
You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.
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 these lessons or think them irrelevant or stupid. It makes no difference, you will learn lessons.
There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error, experimentation. The “failed” experiment that ultimately “works.”
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.
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.
“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.”
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.
What you make of life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources that you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is YOURS.
The answers to life’s questions lie inside of you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust
You will get what you ask for. It may not be what you wanted, but it will be what you asked for.
UPON ENTERING THIS LEVEL OF EXISTENCE, YOU WILL FORGET ALL OF THE ABOVE.
