I believe it is important to look inside ourselves, so each of us knows our ‘true self’… I am thankful that I’ve had the courage to do this, because it allowed me to see ways that a mere purr-therapist could help those beyond the vibes of his work. This is why this post is purrticipating in Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
I just finished reading The Fifth Agreement by don Miguel Ruiz and his son don Jose Ruiz…. I recommend this fine book to anyone interested in understanding/improving themselves. They claim, “The greatest gift we can give ourselves: the freedom to be who we really are.” and this tom agrees with them.
Don Miguel Ruiz and don Jose Ruiz‘s dream is that, “people of all religions and all philosophies” be respected. That doesn’t mean you and I don’t have a right to our individual beliefs, just that you respect others rights to have their own beliefs, too.
The Fifth Agreement has five basic points for purrsonal improvement:
1) Be impeccable with you word, which I believe means having integrity and that means others will realize they can trust you.
2) Don’t take anything personally (I know they misspelled personally, but they are human, so I give them slack).
3) Don’t make assumptions.
4) Always do your best.
5) Be skeptical, but learn to listen…. I’m purrticularly accomplished at this one.
I think I’m doing well, purrticularly with 1, 4 and 5. Still, it can be quite a challenge to live up to an ideal and let’s be honest, not taking things purrsonally and/or making assumptions are difficult skills to learn.
