The Four Agreements – Lesson 4 of 10 – The First Agreement: Be Impeccable With Your Word

The Four Agreements – Lesson 4 of 10 – The First Agreement: Be Impeccable With Your Word

This video from The Four Agreements Online Course presents the first and most important of the agreements: “Be impeccable with your word.” The other three agreements are more support for the first agreement – they help you to unlearn the many habits and routines that cause you to suffer. But the ultimate goal is the first agreement because the word is your power of creation — it’s what you use to create your story. Everything you know, your entire virtual reality, is created with the word.

The objective of the fourth lesson is to become aware that your word is the most powerful tool you have as a human, and that power can be used in more than one direction. Impeccability of your word leads to happiness, and misuse of your word leads to suffering.

QUOTES from don Miguel Ruiz:

“The first agreement is the most important one and also the most difficult one to honor. It is so important that with just this first agreement, you will be able to transcend to the level of existence I call heaven on earth.”

“When you’re impeccable with your word, you never use the word against yourself in the creation of your story. You never betray yourself; you never gossip about yourself. You take responsibility for your actions, but you do not judge or punish yourself for anything.”

“The word is a force you cannot see, but you can see the manifestation of the force, which is your life. You know that you’re using the word against yourself when you’re suffering with guilt, sadness, anger, or fear. You know that you’re using the word impeccably when you’re happy.”

QUESTIONS for you:

Have you ever stopped to consider what a word is and what a word does?

How are you using the power of your word when it comes to creating your life story?

Do you gossip about yourself or gossip about other people?
