Over a Cup. “Rules” for Living & Writing

Mark David Gerson - Now Clock

[quote author=”- Mark David Gerson”]It’s not about being perfect, it’s about being human.[/quote]

Rules for Living:

Rule #1 There are no rules: There is no right way. There is no wrong way. There is only your way.
Rule #2 What works today may not work tomorrow, so you might as well live in the present moment.
Rule #3 Listen to your heart and trust it; it speaks with the voice of God (or whatever you call that divine intelligence we all carry).
Rule #4 Be vulnerable: Share your pain and your passion. That’s what makes you human.
Rule #5 Treat yourself as you would your child or best friend: with love, compassion and respect.
Rule #6 It’s not what you do, it’s how you live (and love).
Rule #7 It’s not how often you meditate, it’s whether you live your life as a meditation.
Rule #8 It’s not what you shed, it’s what you embrace.
Rule #9 It’s not how hard you push, it’s how fully you surrender.
Rule #10 Find your passion and embrace it. Passionately.
Rule #11 It’s not about being perfect, it’s about being human.
Rule #12 Empower yourself: This is your life. Don’t let anyone else tell you how to live it (or not live it).
Rule #13 There are no rules. None. Never.
