Four agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

Hello All,
Recently this was a presentation at UU in Saranac Lake and thought it would be nice to post here.

The Four Agreements
by Don Miguel Ruiz
A set of principals to guide action, thoughts and dreams.

The First agreement:
·      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.

The Second agreement:
·      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.

The Third agreement

·      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 misunderstandings, sadness and drama.

The Fourth agreement

·      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 your best, and you will avoid self-judgement, self-abuse and regret.
