The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
We keep searching and searching, when everything is already within us.
We have learned to live our lives trying to satisfy other people’s demands. We create an image of how we should be in order to be accepted by everybody. (Click to Tweet!)
Make agreement with yourself to be impeccable with your word, that truth will manifest and clean all the emotional poison within you. Be impeccable with your word.
How much you love yourself and how you feel about yourself are directly proportionate to the quality and integrity of your word. You’ll feel happy and at peace.
When someone gives you an opinion, “hey you look fat” don’t take it personally, because the truth is that this person is dealing with their own shit. Don’t take things so personal.
People will lie to you to help you with the suffering you want. You have to trust yourself and choose to believe or not to believe what someone says to you.
Before others have a chance to reject us, we have already rejected ourselves.
Find someone whom you don’t have to change at all. Love you just the way you are.
People get drunk (at times) because they don’t like themselves.
Taking action just for sake of doing, without expecting a reward, you will find you enjoy every action. The journey > end. Do your best.
Don’t feel sorry for yourself. Be a warrior.
Develop awareness of all the self-limiting / fears that make you un-happy.
Repetition makes the master. (Click to Tweet!)
Forgive yourself and the self-rejection in your mind is over. Then self-love will grow stronger. Forgive others. You will know you’ve forgiven when you have no emotional reaction to them. Truth is like a scalpel.
You have the power to create hell, an you have the power to create heaven. Your dream is your perception of reality that you can change at any time.
The only reason you suffer is because you choose to suffer. Happiness is a choice.
