went on to say, "Miguel, all of the drama you suffer
in your personal life is the result of believing in
lies, mainly about yourself. And the first lie you believe
is you are not: You are not the way you should be, you are
not good enough, you are not perfect. We are born perfect,
we grow up perfect, and we will die perfect, because only perfection
exists. But the big lie is that you are not perfect, that nobody
is perfect. So you start to search for an image of perfection
that you can never become..."
can transform you entire story just by practicing the Four
first agreement, be impeccable with your word, means you
never use the power of the word against yourself in the creation
of your story...When you believe in lies, you are using the
power of the word against yourself. When you believe that nobody
likes you, that nobody understands you, that you will never
make it, you are using the word against yourself.
philosophies around the world have known that lies are a
distortion of the word, and some traditions call this distortion
evil. I prefer to say that we are using the word against ourselves
because we do not call it evil when we judge ourselves and
find ourselves guilty. We do not call it evil when we reject
ourselves and treat ourselves much worse than the way we treat
our pets. When
you are impeccable, you never speak against yourself, you have
no beliefs that go against yourself, and you never help anybody
else to go against you...
the word is your power because you use the word for the creation
of your virtual world. You use the word to
create the main character of your story. Every self-opinion,
every belief, is made by words: 'I am smart, I am stupid, I
am beautiful, I am ugly.' This is powerful. But your word is
even more powerful because it also represents you when you
interact with other dreamers. Every
time you speak, your thought becomes sound, your thought becomes
the words, and now it can go into other people’s minds.
If their minds are fertile for that kind of seed, they eat
it, and now that thought lives inside of them, too...
do you know when you are using the word impeccably? Well,
you are happy. You feel good about yourself. You feel love.
How do you know when you are using the word against yourself?
Well, when you are suffering with envy, with anger, with sadness..."
