The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

23 Jun 2018   Shanti Gowans
In his highly acclaimed book, The Four Agreements: A practical Guide to Personal Freedom, Don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering, and offers four simple rules for living an exceptional life. These are a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
a. Speak with integrity.
b. Say only what you mean.
c. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others.
d. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don't Take Anything Personally
a. Nothing others do is because of you.
b. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream.
c. 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
a. Find the courage to ask the questions and to express what you really want.
b. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama.
c. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best
a. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to when you are sick.
b. Under any circumstances, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgement, self-abuse abd regret.
