The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz is a book I keep on my desk all the time.
It’s a small little book packed with power.
It isn’t a book that has to be read all the way through in order to get the messages he is writing about.
They’re contained in small chapters of words for thoughtful contemplation.
The First Agreements is : Be Impeccable with Your Word
The Second Agreement : Don’t take Anything Personally
The Third Agreement : Don’t make Assumptions
The Fourth Agreement : Always Do your Best
To ‘Be Impeccable with Your Word’ is to avoid gossiping; avoid making empty promises that your intention was to not keep; avoid carelessly and thoughtlessly speaking aggressively to another; avoid turning others against someone because of your own feelings of inadequacy; avoid chastising and belittling another to build your own ego.
There are Four Agreements for living a nurturing life are simplistic in their wording but if we look at how we live our daily lives we must question if, in fact, we can do all of these everyday. It’s isn’t a book about being perfect or about being someone who is without frailty. These agreements are goals to aspire to. It’s about living your life in a way that not is effected by the turmoil of others.
Are you always impeccable with your word???
