1. You Will Receive A Body

2. You Will Learn Lessons

3. There Are No Mistakes, Only Lessons

4. A Lesson is Repeated Until it is Learned

5. Learning Lessons Does Not End

6. ‘There’ is No Better Than ‘Here’

7. Others Are Merely Mirrors of You

8. What You Make of Your Life is Up to You

9. The Answers Lie Inside You

Final Thoughts

I find it interesting that four of the rules are about learning lessons. Maybe it’s because we spent so much time focused on what’s happening to us, instead of focusing on why it’s happening. It seems simple enough.
