The Four Agreements
Be impeccable with your word
Speak with integrity. Say only what
You mean. Avoid using words 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 agreement, you can
Completly transform your life.
Always do your best
Your best is going to change moment
By moment, it will be different when
You are healthy as apposed to sick.
Under any circumstances, simply do
Your best, and you will avoid
Self-Judgment, self- abuse and regret.
