I am reading a remarkable book by Marian Head called Revolutionary Agreements. She believes that by living by these 12 agreements you will be happier, healthier and more free. For the next several newsletters, I will be talking about one or two or these agreements each edition.
The world works by agreements, both spoken and unspoken, conscious or unconscious. We make them with co-workers, partners, children and most importantly ourselves. But can making agreements with ourselves change our lives? One of the great men of the 20th century, Mahatma Gandhi said “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
But in order to be that change you wish to see, to make these agreements with yourself, you need to understand that the foundation of these agreements is truth. Not the truth, but your truth. And your truth is what is true for you right now. Your truth may vary with time. You may find that the job that was true for you five years ago no longer fits. And that is wonderful! You have grown and changed. Another word for your truth is authenticity.
So let’s go on a journey and ask questions about your truth and your authentic self.
