The Four Agreements an amazing book by Don Miguel Ruiz, is what we teach on our Reiki Courses. Basically it means being true to who we are, regardless of what other people think we should be. It can be a hard lesson to let go of the facade of being someone else, sometimes we hide behind the facade and would rather be ‘one of the crowd’ rather than being our true nature. Have you ever been in a situation when a few friends get together for a coffee or tea, and they immediately start gossiping about someone who is not there. We look at this situation and know that it is wrong, what do we do? Do we go along with it, or do we simply walk away? Walking away takes courage, but also it liberates us, as we are doing what we really feel.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 mis-understandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
- 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.
Let me know your thoughts.
