One Of The Four Agreements
In 1997, Don Miguel Ruiz came out with a wonderful book that is now a classic in self help literature, The Four Agreements. These agreements are based upon ancient Toltec wisdom. They are a code of conduct to live lives of freedom, happiness and love.
Agreement #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.”
Read and re-read those words. We constantly subject ourselves to people’s opinions and sometimes live n hell because of it. If we can only understand that none of those opinions has anything o do with us then we can forgive and walk in love and bliss. That is a noble goal to say the least.
