A Vision for Our Agreements
We see a world where we have learned to think twice and take a few deep breaths before agreeing with anyone about anything; where we all truly understand that there is a direct relationship between our personal power and our agreements; and where we have become very clear in our knowing that as we agree with someone else, we strengthen their ideas, values and beliefs, and as we withhold our agreement, we dilute their ideas, values and beliefs.
So now, with our agreement intact and in integrity, we are no longer swayed by others with personal motives of their own; we are no longer manipulated by those who would frighten us in order to get us to do what they want us to do; and we completely refrain from making any agreements which do not serve us and will not give us the results we are intending for. Likewise, we refuse to honor any agreements which we had no participation in making. And finally, we no longer mindlessly nod or shake our heads or sign contracts that inhibit us in any way.
For it is when we consciously bring all our agreements, both large and small, to light that we give ourselves one of the greatest gifts known to man and woman. We give ourselves our freedom.
“If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat or your house is on fire, you’ve got a problem. Everything else is merely an inconvenience.”
