Transform Your Life with Four Simple Agreements
We are all a byproduct of other people’s experiences as well as our own. We have been socialized to hold on to the negative because we have been sold on the premise of that is how we can avoid trouble in the future.
That is our human nature now and as spiritual creatures worshiping GOD, BUDDHA, ISLAM, a HIGHER POWER or nothing at all, these beliefs hug no illusions about staying in the past.
The Four Agreements, By Miguel Ruiz
1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.”
Wow… These 4 agreements are powerful just to read and life transforming when put into practice.
But why even bother using this or any other life philosophy?
Well I am so glad you ask the question or had the thought.
It is all about enlightenment and moving forward and NOT LOOKING BACK! What makes this a challenge is we had learned to talk and walk before finding a power greater than ourselves. It is so easy to stay put and not rock the boat, playing safe and causing no waves.
Well my friends we must unlearn a lot of the core values we have learned along the way, really embrace life never ending reality “CHANGE”.
So please make full use of this and the other works you will uncover during your great journey to the top of whatever mountain you are climbing. Knowing that every step matters, nobody deserves what’s at the top more than you do.
