I felt inspired to write about world peace this week in the wake of the tragic events that have been taking place all over our planet. If we all did our parts, we could shift the consciousness of humanity by taking responsibility for our own actions and being kinder to others. Don Miguel's book, The Four Agreements kept coming to mind as a I thought about the ways in which we all could be more proactive in our daily lives to help create a healthier consciousness on our planet. The Four Agreements has been read and utilized by millions of people and is the perfect tool to use to help heal humanity.

The Four Agreements
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
In my opinion, this book is well-written. Don Miguel Ruiz is precise and gets to the point with these 4 Toltec concepts. They are simple, yet profound in their infinite wisdom. The Four Agreements is also an excellent gift for those who are struggling to move through life's challenges. I also have used the oracle deck to help me heal and understand myself at a deeper spiritual level.
If each of us was to follow these simple 4 agreements, we would all be happier, healthier, abundant and would not be so concerned with judging others. We would be able to love people and honor them from respectful distances. By living our lives in this manner, we all would be helping heal humanity each individual at a time.
