Hey don’t take anything personally.

From last blog   Agreement one   Be impeccable with your word.

This is taken from the Toltec wisdom  rewritten by Don Miguel Ruiz in his book The Four Agreements.”

Agreement two:

Don’t take anything personally.

“Nothing others do is because of you.What others say and do is a perception 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.”

One of the Swamis   years ago told us that their is much suffering in the world because of confusion. Learn to be clear in what you want and what you say. Not an easy thing to do.

Agreement three:    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.”

Once you put this into action your whole life can transform.

Agreement four :  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.”

Then and only then will you stop suffering from regrets and

self recrimination.

About lorraine

After a nasty fall from my bicycle, coming home from high school, I began suffering from migraines. After a term of Chiropractic adjustments, which helped but did not entirely stop the migraine headaches, my parents in desperation sent me to yoga classes, The only available evening class in our area was filled with pregnant women. I felt out of place as a shy teenager, but persevered. adjustment,breathing, meditation and yoga proved the only therapy that bought relief from the headaches. Feeling well I got on with life, married moved from my home town and forgot the daily yoga practices and there benefits. Coming back to Yoga and meditation helped me manage during the time of my father's Cancer. and death. Later when my Husband became ill the natural decision was to qualify as a Yoga, meditation teacher to further assist others through the difficult times of illness and recovery or death. I have now been benefiting from the science and art of Yoga, Meditation for well over twenty five years.
