This nugget comes from The Four Agreements. The whole of the human drama comes from assumptions and taking things personally. When people don’t behave the way we want/expect, stories are created. On top of stories come emotions which are created out of the stories we want to tell. Making assumptions hurts us, and when others behave in the wrong way we will take things personally. Today, God help us. May we not take anything personally.

Relationships are one of the most difficult things that we will engage with in this life. The idea that we can’t control others is very painful. People are late! People are flaky! How are we supposed to trust them? We develop many expectations and disappoint ourselves. Or, we set ourselves up for failure. Today, may we interpret being let down differently. May we meet our relationships and people where they are, regardless of what they do.

Being able to set healthy boundaries is an indicator of our greater health as a person. Boundaries are set according to that deep core of our being that knows guilt and shame. Boundaries have everything to do with what we think we deserve. Today, may we set boundaries and not build walls.

All too often in life we rely on external comparisons to understand a thing. Judging things externally gives us a lopsided view of the world. We compare our inner state to the outer state of everything. This can cause us much pain and suffering. Today, may we not compare ourselves to the external.

Imagine the feeling of entering a room. When you arrive in the room what are you thinking about? What is the experience that we’re having and that other people are having. Can we arrive in a room with an energy of loving kindness? Or are we too busy with our problems right now? Today, I can arrive in the moment to be available to others and myself.

You are the most important person in this. The universe is divinely set up this way. Whenever we don’t put our needs an interests first we do all a disservice. We must communicate what we want and need, because if we don’t no ones needs can get met properly. At times we will put other beings or even outside objects before our own well being. Today, may we operate according to the divine order of the universe, which is to put ourselves first. The further out from me something is, the less I need to take care of it.

Everything that ever happens to us it an opportunity to heal, we need only perceive them correctly. When someone says something to us that puts us in pain, sometimes they are speaking to an existing pain that already exists. We have wounds that others touch with their words. Today, may we perceive our spiritual learning in a way that would be productive.

There is a great deal of information in our mind we believe to be the truth, but are actually assumptions. We may pile up assumptions over time and recite them as fact. When we don’t fully investigate information, we create assumptions, and we inevitably create pain. Our mind is always trying to fill in information so that we can have a complete picture of the world, but there is no way our mind could possibly know everything and so we create assumptions. This is one of the main drivers of human drama. Today, may I ask a question instead of creating an assumption.

The primary purpose of a relationship is to learn. The greater part of our insecurities, communication problems, or character defects will show up in our relationships. The people who we would be most attracted to are also those who would bring us great learning. Issues in relationships are what we get to learn through, they are a great medium for our learning.

People do things to me that I don’t hold them responsible for, even when I need to. This is called being a doormat. Being a doormat for other people’s behavior is not a loving spiritual place. We are not meant to accept bad treatment from others. When others treat us with a lack of respect we don’t need to be around for that. We can detach with love.

Relationships Are The Laboratory of the Spirit. We will be drawn to the people and the relationships that would ultimately bring us healing. It’ not that we will get along or like those people, it is that those people will push our buttons in the exact way that our soul requires. When we have learned the lesson we need, we may no longer be attracted to that. In this way, we will always be with the people that we need for development.

A state of unhappiness or unease. Our voluntary participation in events which will disempower us. In essence, we create suffering for ourselves around things we believe we can’t control but actually can. In this world, pain is inevitable but suffering is optional. Today I choose not to suffer.

Notes on distructiveness. When we’re not in spiritual alignment we may be like a tornado going from town to town wrecking everything in our path. There are many human pains and sufferings caused by people’s spiritual misalignment. In the moment, when we are distructive, we will have a sense that we are only hurting ourselves. That may not be true. May we heal our self distructive and outwardly distructive patterns today.

Owning your personal power is about relinquishing those things that suck your energy away that you ultimately have no control over. Owning your personal power is also about putting your effort where it will matter, instead of assuming you’re powerless to change a situation. This is the essence of the serenity prayer: help me find the balance between what I can and cannot change.
