The Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
the four agreements
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 & love
dont take anything personally
nothing others do is because of you.
what others say & do is a projection of their own reality,
their own dream.
when you are immune to the opinions & actions of others,
you wont be the victim of needless suffering
dont make assumptions
find the courage to ask questions &
to express what you really want.
communicate with others as clearly as you can
to avoid misunderstandings,
sadness & 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 circumstance, simply do you best,
& you will avoid self-judgement, self abuse,
