the four agreements: a toltec wisdom book

chapter 2.
the first agreement: be impeccable with your word

'it is through your word that you manifest everything. the word is the most powerful tool you have as a human.' p. 26

'the word can set you free, or it can enslave you even more than you know.' p.27

'the human mind is like a fertile ground where seeds are continually being planted. every human mind is fertile, but only for those kinds of seeds it is prepared for.' p.28

'a sin is anything that you do which goes against yourself. when you are impeccable, you taken responsibility for your actions, but you do not judge or blame yourself. self rejection is the biggest sin that you commit.' p.31

'we must being to understand what the word is and what the word does. if you understand the first agreement, be impeccable with your word, you begin to see all the changes that can happen in your life. changes first in the way you deal with yourself, and later in the way you deal with other people, especially those you love most.' p.42

'impeccability of the word will also give you immunity from anyone putting a negative spell on you. you will only receive a negative idea if your mind is fertile ground for that idea.' p.43

'how much you love yourself and how you feel about yourself are directly proportionate to the quality and integrity of your word.' p.44
