Good day friends,
Over the next few weeks, I am reading, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. Some days I will Quote a page or just give you a summary of what I read and how I understand it. I am just an ordinary person, and I find it interesting how different people and cultures see the world. This is not based on any typical religion. I hope you find it as interesting as I did. Please keep an open mind.
The First Agreement: Be Impeccable with Your Word – Part 1
“The First Agreement is the most important on 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.
The first agreement is to be impeccable with your word. It sounds very simple, but it is very, very powerful.
Why your word? Your word is the power that you have to create. Your word is the gift that comes directly from God. The Gospel of John in the Bible, speaking of the creation of the universe, says. “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word is God.” Through the word you express your creative power. It is through the word that you manifest everything. Regardless of what language you speak, your intent manifests through the word. What you dream, what you feel, and what you really are, will all be manifested through the word.
The word is not just a sound or a written symbol. The word is a force; it is the power you have to express and communicate, to think, and thereby to create the events in your life. You can speak. What other animal on the planet can speak? The word is the most powerful tool you have as a human; it is the tool of magic. But like a sword with two edges, your word can create the most beautiful dream, or your word can destroy everything around you. One edge is the misuse of the word, which creates a living hell. The other edge is the impeccability of the word, which will only create beauty, love, and heaven on earth. Depending upon how it is used, the word can set you free, or it can enslave you even more than you know. All the magic you possess is based on your word. Your word is pure magic, and misuse of your word is black magic….”The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
There you have it. We are only a three pages into this chapter and already my mind is working overtime. My mother always said if you can’t say something kind about someone rather say nothing at all. She also said think before you speak.
If you have been following the Gratitude. Love. Positivity posts you will have noticed that it is all mainly focused on being kind to yourself and others. To be grateful for yourself and others. We have also learned that what we put out in the universe comes back to you.
If we speak badly about others we are indirectly speaking badly about ourselves. So let’s try to be impeccable with our words. Try to only speak kind words and words of motivation. Let’s all try to create a beautiful dream filled with love, beauty and peace.
Yes, it is not going to be easy. If we did not succeed today we start all over tomorrow. Let’s all be impeccable with our words.
With all my heart, thank you for your continued support.
Have a Blessed day.
