The Four Agreements

I wanted to share this with you all. I have much work to do to keep to these ideals, but they are worthwhile, I think.

The Four Agreements

From “The Four Agreements, A Toltec Wisdom Book”
By Don Miguel Ruiz

Simple wisdom for coming into your own mastery and creating balance in your life.

Be Impeccable With Your Word

Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

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.

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.

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.

‘‘oright’’…thanks :confused:

I agree with these four things a great deal. They really describe the true aspects from a day to day experience. My favorite one is “Alway Do Your Best.” I believe that as long as you do your best, nothing else matters.

Thank you JulianO and welcome to ILP! :wink:
