Who knows what she saw in me that cried out for the subtle yet healing wisdom of this book, but I’m glad that my aunt recommended The Four Agreements.
The agreements are just that: agreements that are made and adapted, no matter how absurd or self-limiting, regardless of whether they originate from us or the superego.
The fourth agreement: “Always Do Your Best.”
I cried while reading, but it’s one of those things that you’ll have to take in yourself to get the full effects.
Ever since, I have been thinking about what constitutes as my best. My attention returns magnetically to my work and to my passions.
Chew on this excerpt as you yourself muse:
Action is about living fully. Inaction is the way that we deny life. Inaction is sitting in front of the television every day for years because you are afraid to be alive and to take risk of expressing what you are. Expressing what you are is taking action. You can have many great ideas in your head, but what makes the difference is the action. Without action upon an idea, there will be no manifestations, no results, and no reward.
Journaling is an investment of time and an investment in yourself.
It’s the easiest sacrifice and one of the most beneficial ones to the seeking creative soul.
Where is your best manifesting and where could it manifest some more? Write, write, and write to your heart’s content. Be honest and loving.
