I would like to share with all of you some concepts found in the book The Four Agreements written by Don Miguel Ruiz, in my opinion these concepts really carry on the meaning of being true to thyself.
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) DONT TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY- Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality their own dreams. When your are immune to the opínions and actios 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 misunderstanding, 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.
This is a great book, worth to read and put its words into action.
