“The Rules For Being Human 1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period of this time around. 2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called Life. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid. 3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error: Experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately “works.” 4. A lesson is repeated until learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can then go on to the next lesson. 5. Learning lessons does not end. There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned. 6. “There” is no better than “here.” When your “there” has become a “here,” you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here.” 7. Others are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself. 8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours. 9. Your answers lie inside you. The answers to Life’s questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen and trust. 10. You will forget all this. Chérie Carter-Scott”

“Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor. . . . Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting. Mother Teresa”

“One At A Time A friend of ours was walking down a deserted Mexican beach at sunset. As he walked along, he began to see another man in the distance. As he grew nearer, he noticed that the local native kept leaning down, picking something up and throwing it out into the water. Time and again he kept hurling things out into the ocean. As our friend approached even closer, he noticed that the man was picking up starfish that had been washed up on the beach and, one at a time, he was throwing them back into the water. Our friend was puzzled. He approached the man and said, “Good evening, friend. I was wondering what you are doing.” “I’m throwing these starfish back into the ocean. You see, it’s low tide right now and all of these starfish have been washed up onto the shore. If I don’t throw them back into the sea, they’ll die up here from lack of oxygen.” “I understand,” my friend replied, “but there must be thousands of starfish on this beach. You can’t possibly get to all of them. There are simply too many. And don’t you realize this is probably happening on hundreds of beaches all up and down this coast. Can’t you see that you can’t possibly make a difference?” The local native smiled, bent down and picked up yet another starfish, and as he threw it back into the sea, he replied, “Made a difference to that one!” Jack Canfield and Mark V. Hansen”

“قررت احدى المعلمات في نيويورك ان تكرم الطلاب الذين صنعوا فارقا بالنسبة لها وللفصل، فقدمت لكل واحد منهم شريطا أزرق اللون كتب عليه (من أنا؟ ذلك يصنع فارقا)
ثم قررت ان تمد هذه التجربة لترى مع طلابها الاثر الذي سيحدثه تقدير الفضل والاعتراف بالجميل في المجتمع، فاخذ كل طالب مجموعة من الاشرطة ليضعوها على صدور من يستحقون منهم الشكر والاعتراف بالجميل.
فقام احد الطلاب بمنح الشريط لموظف ساعده في احدى خططه المهنية. وطلب منه ان يقدم شريطا آخر لشخص يهمه فقدمه الموظف بدوره لرئيسه في العمل الذي عرف بشخصيته سريعة الغضب وكثيرة التذمر فسعد به المدير.ثم قدم له الموظف شريطا اضافيا ليمنحه بدوره لن يرغب.
عاد المدير الى بيته وحكى ذلك الموقف لابنه بسعادة بالغة ثم قال لابنه: ان ضغوط العمل تثير قلقي وغضبي فلا أمنحك ما تستحق من اهتمام وكثيرا ما عنفتك على تدني المستوى الدراسي لك، ولكني الليلة أريد ان أقول لك إنك الشخص الاهم في حياتي الى جانب والدتك انك ولد عظيم وأنا أحبك.
دهش الولد وانتحب وارتعدت أوصاله من شدة البكاء وقال لوالده: "كنت أفكر في الانتحار غدا يا أبي لأنني اعتقدت انك لا تحبني ولكنني الآن لا احتاج لفعل ذلك".”

“Hugging is healthy. It helps the immune system, cures depression, reduces stress and induces sleep. It’s invigorating, rejuvenating and has no unpleasant side effects. Hugging is nothing less than a miracle drug. Hugging is all natural. It is organic, naturally sweet, no artificial ingredients, nonpolluting, environmentally friendly and 100 percent wholesome. Hugging is the ideal gift. Great for any occasion, fun to give and receive, shows you care, comes with its own wrapping and, of course, fully returnable. Hugging is practically perfect. No batteries to wear out, inflation-proof, nonfattening, no monthly payments, theft-proof and nontaxable. Hugging is an underutilized resource with magical powers. When we open our hearts and arms, we encourage others to do the same. Think of the people in your life. Are there any words you’d like to say? Are there any hugs you want to share? Are you waiting and hoping someone else will ask first? Please don’t wait! Initiate!”

“إن العناق شئ صحي يساعد على تقوية جهاز المناعة، ويقلل من الإحباط و يخفف من الضغط، ويحث على النوم و الإسترخاء.
أنه مقو و منشط، كما أنه يجدد الشباب وليس له أي آثار جانبيه. إن العناق ليس إلا عقارا سحريا.
العناق شيء طبيعي جدا، أنه أساسا ذو حلاوة و عذوبة طبيعية ولا يحتوي على أية مكونات صناعية، ولا أية ملوثات، وهو صديق البيئة لأنه صحي تماما.
العناق هو الهدية المثالية. و هو شيء رائع لتقديمه في أية مناسبة، وهو ممتع في منحه و تلقيه، ويوضح للآخرين مدى اهتمامك بهم، ويعود عليك بمنافع جمة حيث أنه قابل للتبادل.
أن العناق ممتاز بشكل عملي، حيث لا يحتاج إلى مجهودكم، وهو خير ما يقاوم الغرور، وكذلك لا يساعد على زيادة الوزن، ولا يكلف أي نقود شهرية، وهو كذلك ضد السرقة و معفي من الضرائب.
العناق مصدر نافع جدا ذو قوة سحرية. فعندما نفتح قلوبنا وأذرعنا لنعانق الآخرين، فإننا بذلك نشجعهم على أن يفعلوا نفس الشيء.”
Jack Canfield, Chicken Soup for the Soul
