QUOTES from don Miguel Ruiz:
“The Four Agreements are most accurately described as a way of life or code of conduct, and they’re universal in their appeal. They speak to the heart of all human beings, from the young to the old. They speak to people of different cultures all around the world, people whose religious and philosophical beliefs are vastly different. The principles speak to everyone because they are pure common sense.”
“If you look at your life you will find many excuses to suffer, but a good reason to suffer you will not find. The same is true for happiness. The only reason you are happy is because you choose to be happy. Happiness is a choice, and so is suffering.”
“If you practice The Four Agreements, you will master The Four Agreements. Eventually, after many repetitions, these agreements will become a habit, and you will see how your life is transformed.”
QUESTIONS for you:
Do you suffer from conflict with other people or conflict within yourself (negative inner chatter that leads to worry, anxiety, anger, guilt, regret, or shame)?
Do you judge yourself for not being what you “should” be – for not being smart enough or talented enough, pretty or handsome enough, thin or fit enough, successful or rich enough?
