The Four Agreements

Some­one post­ed this to project_oasis and I want­ed to save them for myself:

The Four Agree­ments, by Don Miguel Ruiz.

1. 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. 

2. 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.

3. 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. 

4. 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.
