Good Karma




I received this in an email the other day. I didn't really want to forward it to everyone (Gasp! I won't receive a pleasant surprise in 96 hours!), so I thought I would just post it instead. These thoughts are supposedly "good karma", but whether they are or not, they are great things to think about. Take it for what you will.




INSTRUCTIONS FOR LIFE

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 R's: 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.
6. Don't let a little dispute injure a great relationship.
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. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
14. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
15. Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.

{Karma}: "Through the law of karma, the effects of all deeds actively create past, present, and future experiences, thus making one responsible for one's own life, and the pain and joy it brings to him/her and others." (Definition found on wikipedia.com)
