I will admit that I am a mindfulness book junkie … however I am aware that we are few and far between .. usually lurking in the back of bookstores like The HunchBack of Notre Dame pretending to be looking at the travel section to the left … with one eye on deepak chopra whaaat??? shh not like that .
but seriously .. I recently re-red THE FOUR AGREEMENTS … a book about how our minds mess us up .. nahh duh , and how a few little agreements will change the way you see the world … the whole book makes a lot of sense especially if you’re the type of person who’s hard on yourself , over thinks everything or is a little careless and mindless.
its honestly not wishy-washy The Secret vibes .. its really practical .. but you’re like WHAT ARE THE AGREEMENTS TELL ME .. no you need to read it to find out .. ONLY JOKING :
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.
now you don’t have to read it .. but you do because . it .will.change.your.life (personally im surprised oprah hasn’t caught on to this one.. or has she?)
