Soul Sunday

God is life. God is life in action. The best way to say, "I love you, God" is to live your life doing your best. The best way to say, "Thank you, God" is by letting go of the past and living in the present moment, right here and now. Whatever life takes away from you, let it go. When you surrender and let go of the past, you allow yourself to be fully alive in the moment. Letting go of the past means you can enjoy the dream that is happening right now.”  
~ Don Miguel Ruiz
Ruiz wrote a book called The Four Agreements.  The book is based on four principles. 
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.
Don't Take Anything Personally: Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.

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 misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

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. 
Reading the agreements is one thing, incorporating them into our worlds another. Think about each agreement, how it could be integrated into each of our own lives and the profound difference it could make. Simply open the soul to the positive possibility within each agreement.
