Have You Seen This Before?

I just learned about these principles in the last few weeks.

What are the agreements? I will tell you.

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the
word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use
the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

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.

3. 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. With just this
one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. 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, and you will avoid
self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

    Hey, those are actually principles that I try to go by! So ok, ummm, sean, you should come out east for a trip. There, see communication of what I want! hahhahahahahahah. No, but I do like these, they are more accurate than most think. It is sort of like my latest myspace blog (you know the site you dumped!), I did one on misconceptions. Laters man.

    If not, I’ll find it. *as if this one isn’t shockingly pertinent at the moment. Props!
