The Four Agreements
THE FOUR AGREEMENTS
BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD
Your word is the gift that comes directly from GOD. Regardless of what language you
speak, your intent towards yourself and others manifests through the word. The word is pure magic that humans possess, and the misuse of the word is to spread black magic. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or gossip about others. Use the magic and power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
DON'T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
You take whatever was said or done to you personally because you agree with whatever was said or done. As soon as you agree, the poison goes through you, and
you are trapped in the dream of hell. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a protection of their own reality, their own dream, their own fantasy. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.
DON'T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS
We make assumptions about what others are doing or thinking – we take it personally - then we blame them and react by sending emotional poison with our word. 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.
ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST
Your best is going to change from moment to moment, it will be different when we are healthy opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgement, self-abuse and regret.
