Guidelines for SANE Living

  1. Strike a balance abetween work and play – between seriousness and laughter. Go to a spiritual gathering regularly, and also to a ball game.
  2. Stick with the truth and be honest, even when you feel some guilt or shame. Falsehoods are like wandering ghosts.
  3. Forgive your enemies as part of the price you pay for the privilege of being forgiven. Realize you are sometimes a pain in the neck yourself.
  4. Walk. Get lots of air and sunshine, and occasionally get some rain or snow in your face, or some dirt on your hands.
  5. Talk through your troubles and mistakes with someone you trust – and your dreams, too.
  6. Don’t underestimate the abiity of your Higher Power / God to straighten out a situation even when you cannot, and give the Universe a little time!
  7. Disciminate among your fears. Learn to tell which ones are useful and which ones are destructive.
  8. Remember that the ultimate death rate is still 100%. You would be getting short-changed if everyone got to die and you didn’t.
  9. When you can’t sleep, say, “Aha! Here’s a chance for a little privacy and creative thinking. All day I’ve been too busy to pray and now I can get around to writing that gratitude list.”
  10. Fall in love with life – with children, people older than you, middle-agers, sports cars, the theater, music, books, cities, hills, the sea and the world – with everything except money.
