Wresting Color From the Canvas: House Rule #17

Earth is a school and daily life is our classroom
Our teachers come in many forms
We learn best through direct experience
Failures are the stepping stones to success
Lessons reappear until we learn them
If we don’t learn the easy lessons, they get harder
Consequences teach better than concepts
Only action brings ideas to life
We can control efforts, not outcomes
Timing is everything
What goes around comes around
Little things can make a big difference
Play to your strengths
To transform your life, change your expectations
Judge with compassion
Simplicity has power
Life develops what it demands
I do not remember how I came upon the Tao of Wealth (these 25 House Rules), but I remember this rule making the most sense to me at the time.
I couldn’t get it out of my head.
Rule #17. Life develops what it demands. Rule #17.
I latched onto it because it meant that no matter how crazy things got for me, I could rely on the fact that I need not look further than the present moment for my next message.
Dan Millman is quoted as saying “Your next message is right where you are.”
It was a pillar of continuity in a world that didn’t have any, a reminder that the Universe at large had a plan for me.
We all grow along spiritual lines, and we are presented with various challenges along the spiritual spectrum when we are made ready for them to be of maximum benefit to us. This means that at any given moment, we have exactly what we need to progress spiritually.
Does this imply that fate is the hand that rocks the cradle?
It means that for every choice that you make, you are presented with three more ways to get where you need to be. Taking a left on the way home one day instead of taking a right could very well make all the difference between two variables, but it will have been the Universe in it’s infinite Wisdom to have provided you with those variables at all.
