    We are born without control so we are given rules to live by.

    But by the age of about 22 we reach the height of our control, and if we continue on the same path of control, we become absurd.

    Yes, by about the age of 22 it is time to start to let go of control and reach for spontaneity.

    be a loyal friend

    treat others as they want to be treated

    enjoy the little things, otherwise why bother living?

    Abandon rules, abandon yourself, seek intercourse with the universe spontaneous moment by spontaneous moment.

    This is true, but once we reach maturity we are still not rule free. We have moved from the rules we were taught or had forced on us, to the rules we have discovered though experience and understanding. Not that we have to follow them .

    This rule has worked for me my entire life.
    It is a simple rule that speaks to all occasions, and to all people:

    "Lead, Follow, or Get the Fuck Out of My Way."

    Don't sweat the small stuff.

    Dream big, think big, and make big things happen in your life.

    Shoot for the stars, land wherever, for the destination matters not if you are clever.

    Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it.
    Live and let live.
    Walk on.
