Book Report Monday
Have you read the book the Four Agreements? It is by Miguel Ruiz and is such an inspirational read. It is a spiritual book with Toltec roots. It was eye opening to me~ as most spiritual guides are. Here are the main points:
Basically the premise is that there are four things we can do to be a better human. Sounds good to me, nice and easy right?!
- Be impeccable with your word
- Don’t take anything personally
- Don’t make assumptions
- Always do your best
Practicing these four agreements can be difficult to navigate. After I first read the book a few years ago I realized which ones were my strengths and which were my weaknesses. I struggle with #1 all the time. Not so much with what I am saying but how I am saying it, wanting to be so clear and say only what I actually mean. This is really tricky.
What agreement is your strength? What is your weakness? What do you want to work on? I am still focusing on #1, it is so tricky!
