The Four Agreements are what I know for sure.
- “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…”
- “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…”
- “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…”
- “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…”
As I sift and sort through my emotions and feelings of today, I have found such solace in the rereading of an amazingly simple yet so powerful book. The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.
I reconnected to my own universal power/energy; replaced anxiety with peace, fear and disdain with love. I am not putting my head into a hole but moving in the direction of mindful intention. My desire is for ALL to thrive, find happiness, love and freedom.
I will remember that whatever I am energetically offering to the world is what I can expect to come back to me.
