I wrote this quote several years ago and it’s valuable today and every day thereafter.
I’m sure many of you have read the 4 Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. I love the simplicity of his message. The 4 Agreements you should always keep in mind are
- Be impeccable with your word
- Don’t take anything personal
- Don’t make assumptions
- Always do your best
Not taking anything personal (yes, quite an undertaking!) is another huge accomplishment and will lift all burden of our shoulders. It will destroy the ego and reveal our true Spirit. It is freedom.
We must not assume ‘we know it all’. Don’t believe just because someone says it – always proof it to yourself. When you’re not sure ask yourself: Is it kind, is it loving, is it good for all concerned? When the answer is yes, you are on the right track. It’s as simple as that.
And of course: We must always do our best. Whatever the best is, is relative to our understanding. However, if we strive to do our best we will grow and become more aware of what perfection and pure goodness really looks like. Doing our best, always, is the roadmap, it includes impeccable words, not taking everything personal and not making assumptions. Have a wonderful, uplifting day!
