OK, this is the last info Pre-Four Agreements! But I hope you’ve gotten something out of tem regardless of whether you join us on the teleseminar.
Yesterday I talked about not taking things personally and not making assumptions.
Today it’s “Always do your best”.
If you know you just want to register, do it now
The Fourth agreement is “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.
Everything is alive and changing all the time, so your best will sometimes be high quality, and other times it will not be as good. Your best will depend on whether you are feeling wonderful and happy, or upset, angry, or jealous.
In your everyday moods your best can change from one moment to another, from one hour to the next, from one day to another. Your best will also change over time.
If you try too hard to do more than your best, you will spend more energy than is needed and in the end your best will not be enough. When you overdo, you deplete your body and go against yourself, and it will take you longer to accomplish your goal. But if you do less than your best, you subject yourself to frustrations, self-judgment, guilt and regrets.
Doing your best is taking the action because you love it, not because you’re expecting a reward. Most people do exactly the opposite:
They only take action when they expect a reward, and they don’t enjoy the action. And that’s the reason they don’t do their best.
When you do your best you learn to accept yourself. But you have to be aware and learn from your mistakes. Learning from your mistakes means you practice, look honestly at the results, and keep practicing. This increases your awareness.
When you practice giving love to every part of your body, you plant seeds of love in your mind, and when they grow, you will love, honor, and respect your body immensely.
Every action then becomes a ritual in which you are honoring God. After that, the next step is honoring God with every thought, every emotion, every belief, even what is “right” or “wrong”. Every thought becomes a communion with God.
