rule four – the lesson is repeated until learned. lessons repeat until learned. what manifest as problems and challenges, irritations and frustrations are more lessons – they will repeat until you see them as such and learn from them. your own awareness and your ability to change are requisites of executing this rule. also fundamental is the acceptance that you are not a victim of fate or circumstance – ‘causality’ must be acknowledged; that is to say: things happen to you because of how you are and what you do. to blame anyone or anything else for your misfortunes is an escape and a denial; you yourself are responsible for you, and what happens to you. patience is required – change doesn’t happen overnight, so give change time to happen.
