The Four Agreements

Do you have a list of life changing books?  

The books you've read that you recommend to everyone?  The books that entered your life with divine timing and whose words felt as though the author had written solely for you?  

One of those books for me is "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz.  I want to share with you here the agreements and recommend you take the time to read the book in order to more fully understand.  

These agreements helped me through some challenging times and have been a daily mantra ever since. They are simple, wise, and deeply meaningful.

With love,

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.”
