eyeRead: A Book of WISDOM

Let's renew our minds, one thought at a time. Instead of taking things personal, let's have control of all of our emotions. Rather than regretting what could have been done, let's make it a point to always do our best. "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz is a toltec book of wisdom. Here are some things you can do to change your thinking and live freely in this crazy critical world.

Chapter 1. Realize that a lot of our thoughts and feelings about ourselves and others come from the influence of the world. Just think about it. You might ask for a second opinion on an outfit because you "don't want to look crazy" instead of just wearing what you want. The book explains this in its 1st chapter "Domestication and the Dream of the Planet"

*An agreement is something that you consent to. In this book, you explore the many agreements you made with the world, and have denied about your true self.*

Chapter 2. The First Agreement: 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.

Chapter 3. The Second Agreement: Don't take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you wont be the victim of needless suffering.

Chapter 4. The Third Agreement: Don't Make assumptons. Find the corage to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama.

Chapter 5. The Fourth Agreement: 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-jugment, self-abuse and regret.

Those were the little summaries from the book, but I suggest you get the book for yourself. Read it with an open mind and incoroporate some of the ideas into your everyday life. One thought at a time, you can help break the worlds agreements, and start on the road to living truly for you.
