Now here are a set of rules I can live with :)
What do you think?
Wow! Amazing! Simply Wonderful!
I have heard of the name Dan Millman but my curiosity never bit.
Even when I saw your question posted I kept ignoring it. Then feeling sorry for the abandoned "red" question that kept glaring in the middle of the screen, my compassion for it drew me in.
Boy was I ever glad that I clicked on your question.
These words are profound and are worthy of being framed and hung on the wall in every seeker's sanctuary.
I love the fact that each statement is many levels deep.
Thank You for sharing this wonderful work for the benefit of the rest of us.
I just decided to add more to this:
On second thoughts, these words should be hung in a frame in a place where others can see it. It is a great conversation trigger, and I am sure all of us here will enjoy the opportunity to explain the meaning within these words to those who are curious and ready!
I'm pretty sure Dan Millman is not the author of the "Rules for Being Human" I believe it is Cherie Carter-Scott

ok only thing i don't agree with is external problem being reflextion of internal state. when people stone you and you did no wrong because of there ego. it is not because of you they have free will. but you do not have to accept it or let it affect you. if the world killed jesus was it because of is internal state? if you are sitting and contemplating people from far away and one of them sneak up on you and stone you from behind is it because of your internal state? the rest is very good.

I had a print out I copied from a community college gym I worked out at in 1996 that credited Dan Millman as the source of The Rules of Being Human. I'm curious if Dan or Cherie will respond to these claims.
