When you make assumptions, you create your reality without respect for the truth or someone else`s experience. You will also create expectations based on your assumptions, then you will be disappointed or angry and blame others if what you expected does not happen. Our assumptions are the roots of most of the dramas of our lives. You receive a text from a word from your partner that you don`t understand — you have to guess. You are not invited to the big party and you need to know why, you are doing something. Maybe your favorite cashier in the market says something you haven`t quite heard, but she`ll be rushed and you don`t ask her to repeat it. No matter what she said, it was weird — it was making fun of you, commenting on your outfit, you don`t know.

So you trust the strange feeling and start a great drama based on your assumption of what happened. You can`t wait to tell your friends. Maybe they are horrified by your story and they promised never to return to that market. A big dream of a small hypothesis, and it spreads like a virus. To avoid guessing, ask questions. It takes courage to go against your fear, to ask for clarity: “I saw that you had a great party, and it seems that I was not invited as I expected. Is there anything I need to know about this? We may hear the truth: “I`m sorry, but the last time you got drunk was worrying for people. Or “After our last meeting, you said something that made me think you didn`t want to be invited again. Or: “I sent you an invitation and I was disappointed that you didn`t come.

There are so many possible answers, but the risk of requiring clarity seems dangerous. Be brave. Trust in the present moment, trust others and respect them to be exactly what they are, and let life flourish according to its own plan – it avoids a lot of suffering. The four agreements© were published in 1997 and have sold about 9 million times. He has been on the New York Times bestseller list for nearly a decade. Everything we do is based on agreements we have made – agreements with ourselves, with other people, with God, with life. But the most important agreements are those we make with ourselves. It doesn`t really seem to work – there are enough judgments that go from within, from the inside and from the outside to perfect an entire human race. Yet we suffer, we will fall back, we do not fulfill our goals or we keep our intentions, We have lost touch with the reality of our perfection with which we entered this world. We had no shame, no regrets, no failure, no fear of these terrible diseases of the human spirit when we were very young. It didn`t take us long to domesticate ourselves to believe many lies, and we still believe them.

We use lies against ourselves and we don`t think we`re perfect. “What do you think I did the best I could? I made a total mess of it (painting work, presentation, wedding, spaghetti sauce spilled) and you tell me that I do my best!? I should do a lot better! It is a challenge to reintegrate into the truth of life: we have all come here as unique expressions of the unique and animatoral strength of this universe. We are perfect expressions of this divine source and therefore we must be perfect ourselves. You always do your best. Imagine how many factors have been at work around a recent decision. Don`t forget to involve your ancestors and those of all concerned. Your DNA. And that means fifth grade teacher. And the days when you were being punished for things you didn`t do. And if you were sick or well, tired or rested when you made that decision.
