The Four Agreements and the Daily PaulSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Wed, 06/11/2014 - 01:03
The Four Agreements is a sweet little book. Compact wisdom that is applicable to the Daily Paul.
1. Be Impeccable with Your Word
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don't Take Anything Personally
Nobody knows you here. They have an image of you based on a few data points that you have provided. That image exists only in their mind.
3. Don't Make Assumptions
When you assume, you make an ASS out of U and ME. (My typing teacher taught us that.) Look again at #2. If no one knows you, the converse is that you don't know anyone else, either. All you have is a mental projection (a reality hologram, I call it) that exists nowhere but in your mind.
If you must assume, assume the best, not the worst.
4. Always Do Your Best
This speaks for itself.
