Reviewing Chapter 6 of the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
We were free when we were children and didn’t care what anyone thought of us. We just wanted to have fun.
The real you is still a little child who never grew up. Sometimes that little child comes out when you are having fun or playing, when you feel happy… or expressing yourself in some way. These are the happiest moments of your life – when the real you comes out, when you don’t care about the past and you don’t worry about the future. You are childlike.
The first step is always awareness.
We need to be aware that we are not free in order to be free.
We have the power to believe anything.
You can choose to believe in anything, and that includes believeing in yourself.
Replace your sad face with a happy face. Happy agreements rock.
For every agreement you break that makes you suffer, you will need to replace it with a new agreement that makes you happy.
Forgiveness is the magic pill.
We must forgive those we feel have wronged us, not because they deserve to be forgiven but because we love ourselves so much we don’t want to keep paying for the injustice.
And, as always, you’re gonna need a little “eye of the tiger”
The warrior has awareness. That’s very important. We are aware that we are at war, and the war in our minds requires discipline. Not the discipline of a soldier, but the discipline of a warrior. Not the discipline from the outside to tell us what to do, but the discipline to be ourselves, no matter what.
Oh snap! I love it!
What do you think? How are you a warrior in your life?
