“BE SKEPTICAL, BUT LEARN TO LISTEN..”
Don’t believe yourself or anybody else. Use the power of doubt to question everything you hear: is it really the truth? Listen to the intent behind words, and you will understand the real message.
Today’s first for the “one new thing a day for 100 days” New Year’s resolution was to read the fifth agreement .. Not the whole book, but just familiarize myself with the “fifth”. I have read the book the four agreements and have heard of the fifth agreement but until tonight I was not sure of the concept..
In The Four Agreements, a New York Times best seller for over seven years, don Miguel Ruiz revealed how the process of our education, or “domestication,” can make us forget the wisdom we were born with. Throughout our lives, we make many agreements that go against ourselves and create needless suffering. The Four Agreements help us to break these self-limiting agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us personal freedom, happiness, and love. Now don Miguel Ruiz joins his son don Jose Ruiz to offer a fresh perspective on the Four Agreements, and a powerful new agreement for transforming our lives into our personal heaven: the fifth agreement. The Fifth Agreement takes us to a deeper level of awareness of the power of the Self, and returns us to the authenticity we were born with. In this compelling sequel to the book that has changed the lives of millions of people around the world, we are reminded of the greatest gift we can give ourselves: the freedom to be who we really are..
The first four agreements are: be impeccable with your word, don’t take anything personally, don’t make assumptions, always do your best
