Wresting Color From the Canvas: House Rule #19

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
Every choice leads to wisdom
God help those who help themselves
The nineteenth House Rule is quoted as “God helps those who help themselves,” but I’m changing the wording because not all of my readers believe in God. In some cases you need to satisfy the minority in order to preserve the flock.
The Universe is nothing but an echo. I covered this in my blog, The Introvert Exposed: A Practical Approach to Spiritual Living. You may not always get exactly what you want, but you’ll come closer to hitting your target if you aim for it than if you don’t.
Does not an object at rest tend to stay at rest? Does not an object in motion tend to stay in motion?
Universal laws mirror physical laws. They are not as tangible or as verifiable as gravity but on some level, each of them resonates with those of us who look for their influence in our lives.
Those of us who do not seek the power and serenity that make up the spiritual current do not partake of them.
