The Live Journal Four Agreements Wisdom Group
I am Bella - I'm 43 and have read this book many times over. I recently sent my personal copy to a friend of mine. I hope she likes it as much as I do. The group doesn't seem to be too active but perhaps we can remotivate ourselfs in making this a dynamic/discussion group.
On page 27 - he talks about our word and that it is pure magic - misuse of our word is black magic. I have found situations described where I have said something (usually due to tiredness to my daughter) and then regretted it. I find it is very very important for me to back to her (when I'm calm) and tell her how much I love her and that I wa wrong for saying whatever the way I said it. My message delivery was bad. There are times when I have to speak the truth and it can be hurtful, but choosing the right words and not tring to cause additional hurt and worry are very important.
How do you go about choosing the right words? How does one know when our word needs to be amended - and do we ask God first, how is this done?
One another note - Are you comfortable with incorporating your personal religion into these Agreements???
