    Default Intructions For Living

    "Instructions for Living" from the Dalai Lama which I hope will make your heart and your soul sing.

    1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

    2. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

    3. Follow the three Rs: Respect for self, respect for others and responsibility for all your actions.

    4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

    5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly. I like this one

    6. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

    7. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

    8. Spend some time alone every day.

    9. Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.

    10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

    11. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time.

    12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

    13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don't bring up the past.

    14. Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.

    15. Be gentle with the earth.

    16. Once a year, go some place you've never been before.

    17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

    18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

    19. Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.

    This is Rex Barker C.S. (Compassionate Soul) reminded that everything we see and hear is a little message from heaven. Have a beautiful day!
