The Four Agreements – book review

The Four Agreements – book review

Hello dears!

Waiting for my Yoga course to resume mid of September, I try to keep my “state of grace” by listening to mantras and reading books that keep me tuned on a “think-good-do-good-feel-good” channel.

This book is sensational in its plainness. Toltec wisdom is conveyed using an understandable, down-to-earth language. I was stunned, and kept nodding and highlighting key-sentences with my pink pencil.

Here are some of them.

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 misunderstandings, 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 circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

If you read this post through, it means you needed to hear these words right now.
Which of them called YOUR name?

Looking forward to your insights on this, I send you all a big big hug 
