Really nice aha moment...


Friday, May 20, 2011

I am currently visiting my sister and into my second week away from home....I read a book today that is called "The Four Agreements" - A Toltec Wisdom Collection.... I decided to write down the Four Agreements - the short version on the inside of the book cover....

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 circumstances, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgement, self-abuse and regret .

Wanted to share this - I think its excellent and I have decided and agreed that this is what I am currently going to implement in my life....

I would just love it - if - you read this and also know of some self help resources - to share those with me.....

Love to everyone in Spark....

    Thank you for sharing this. You always hope this is how you see and communicate things, but sometimes a gentle reminder is helpful.
