I was reading Don Miguel Ruizʼs “The Four Agreements” this morning, for probably the 10th or so time, but for the first time I had a new concept pop out at me. You find it happens that way, right? You watch an old movie or read an old book again, but are still noticing things you had never seen before. For anyone who has not read this book, I would highly recommend it as a brilliant introduction into taking full responsibility for you in this life.
Coming from the background I do, and relating to the world through Law of Attraction principles – notice in this short passage from Ruizʼs book, the power and truth that exudes by simply changing one word…
“The First agreement is the most important one and also the most difficult to honor. It is so important that with just this first agreement you will be able to transcend to the level of existence I call heaven on earth.
The first agreement is To Be Impeccable with Your Thought. It sounds very simple, but is very, very, powerful.
Why your thought? Your thought is the power that you have to create. Your thought is the gift that comes from God. Through thought, you express creative power. It is through thought that you manifest everything. Regardless of what language you speak, your intent manifests through the thought.
The thought is a force; it is the power you have to express and communicate, to think, and thereby to create the events in your life. You can think. What other animal on the planet can think? The thought is the most powerful tool you have as a human; it is the tool of magic. Depending on how it is used, the thought can set you free, or it can enslave you more than you know. All the magic you possess is based on your thought.”
Wow that is good sh*t! This passage can help remind us just how powerful we are. It is our thought that ultimately translates into physical reality, and we get to control our thought, amazing. So very grateful to Don Miguel Ruiz for being connected enough to let this wisdom flow through, and share his message and truth with the world.
