More to peace – huge insight – four agreements with yourself – being a better huma

My biggest insights or biggest guidances in life had always arrived through books, and normally gifts from someone special…

3 years ago my sisters gave me “os 4 acordos” from Miguel Ruiz. I had read it only now, 3 weeks ago, and it is amazing how much it has made a difference in my life since then…

The book just tell you about 4 agreements to make with yourself that will change completely your way to see the world, and then, how the world sees you – the world is brighter and finally you can achieve to make this world a better place for you to live in… Yes, you are the only responsible for the world you live in, as it is only a reflection, a mirror of your interior…

The book makes a parallel between the toltecas philosophy  (Mexican indian ancestrales) to budhism or the principles of yoga, like the Ahimsa, Avidya, non violence and pure truth… The main objective is to reach the peace of mind, or interior plenitud, finding yourself in a world where is simple and pleasant to live, the nirvana in budhism, heaven in Catholicism,

If you live creating a world of love and in your day to day you aim to avoid the violence in deeds or speech, added to this, learn not to take anything that happens personally,  do not assume anything that you do not have concrete information, meaning not judging, doing always the best you can; then you will find this nirvana, heaven in earth, inside yourself. This state is a state that is simply by living your life with unconditional love, lots of gratitude and great respect, first to yourself, and then for others!!

It is amazing how simple, but difficult it is….

But it is a great exercise…. and one see how each of them help each other…

The Four Agreements are:

1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak always with love or care. Say only what you mean, but always in a nice way. Never use words that might hurt a person, not in front of her/him, not on his/her back. Also do not speak anything bad about yourself. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love. Use your word to build the world you would like to live in. Always ask – this what I said, or what I am about to say is positive or negative, in case is negative but has to be said, ask yourself – how I am saying it will hurt or help the person??? You can say whatever you want and be welcomed, it always depends on how you do it…

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally Nothing others do is because of you, against you or to 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. Always when somebody says or does something – take yourself the observer position, and take yourself to the context, and analyze as if you are seeing something from outside – your reaction will be completely different, you will be much better prepare to further act as a better human being!! When you start to exercise this one, you will see how difficult is not to take personally, and always when you take personally, normally your words and deeds are not refrained from violence… If you are like this, others are also, and not on purpose, so just imagine that you want to help the other, by not reacting and not taking it personally then your words and deed will be with love, and the person will not take it personally and will thank you!!

3. Don’t Make Assumptions Never take conclusions or judge somebody or some situation, ask direct the person what she/he means by doing or saying something.  If you are not sure why something happened or somebody did something beware not to take “bad” conclusions, judging someone. A great secret is to refer to the previous agreement, whatever happens, do not get yourself involved, judging that whatever happened has to do with you….  Always when you notice you are judging, come to the previous 3 agreements, and act with love, ask what people do really mean and try to help! With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. 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. By being sure you are doing your best, you will feel great, and for sure you will be seeing a development in your best!!!

Something beautiful that the book tells you after showing the 4 secrets is a great last secret….

When you are struggling to get the lovely words and deeds, and you are taking everything personally, just take a moment – just breath deeply, and with your eyes closed, imagine that one  and each human being would love to live in a world where no violence exists and that trust is all we have among all of us… Be sure that being a bad guy is tough and tiring, so even the people we call “bad” would love to live in a world where you can rest your defenses and only be yourself – by seeing THIS world, you just open your eyes and be strong on your purpose to build, at least YOUR world, as you would like it yo be…

My world will be a world where I act with love, speak with love, do my best not take anything personally and fight against any judgmental thought, no conclusion is good conclusion, if not with love!!!!

My world will be a best world each day, I will live my blue world, and will try my best to make my loved one’s also a beautiful blue world!!!!!

Someone want to go through this journey with me???
