The Four Agreements Revisited
Published on October 12, 2009
I am taking a much needed bloggy break and thought it would be fun to take a walk down memory lane. This post was originally published on September 2, 2008. Enjoy!

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 misunderstanding,
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-judgement, self-abuse, and regret.
