The First Agreement

Let my word be impeccable. The word that I write, think and utter. About myself and others.

I’m rereading The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and I am once again struck with awe. It has been many years since I first read this little, albeit powerful, book and is the only book that I know of, that my husband has read twice. I am encouraged by my daughter asking me about it. Encouraged because, she is in her first year of University, studying Commerce and when she told me that the Dean mentioned that it is his favourite book, I was taken aback but warmed by the notion. Encouraged to know that someone who is business minded is also honouring his spiritual side. Encouraged to know that my daughter will continue to surround herself with people who inspire her to use her gifts and talents for good in this world.

And so, today, when the little book called to me, I once again am making a commitment to use the power of my word in gratefulness, for truth and for love.
