The Four Agreements: Be Impeccable with Your Word

Listen up women… after hearing from some women who have husbands or partners who would like to join with the single women and take adventures you have been heard! This group is now open to all women. The meeting to organize is scheduled for Friday at 6:30. If you are unable to attend, check Heart Thoughts for date and time for the first outing.

It is great having Julie Thompson back with us. She will be performing again this Sunday. Come join us. Masks are required and there is plenty of room for social distancing, should you want that.

Please check the calendar carefully, as dates and times of events are changing.

What a treat to be revisiting The Four Agreements. They are as relevant to me as they were when I did this series 10 years ago. As I was preparing for the talk, I reread the chapter on the first agreement, Be Impeccable with Your Word, and thought, “yes,” think before I speak to be sure what I am saying is raising the vibration of my thoughts and those of others.

I am not one who studies numbers; however, I like numerology. I do know a little bit about the power of the number four. Four faces or ages. The face of the child, the adolescent, the adult, the sage. Then we have the four seasons, spring, summer, fall and winter.

Four things that breathe. We have things that crawl, things that fly, and then the two legged (us) and four-legged species. Four elements – fire earth, air and water. Four directions – north, east, south and west. Four chambers in the human heart, left and right atrium (upper chambers) and left and right ventricle (lower chambers).

In Unity, four is the number of wholeness. The number 40 (which can be reduced to 4) written about in scripture over and over – a description of an initiation process of growth. Whether it is 40 days in the desert or 40 years in the wilderness, 40 means as long as it takes to move into the state of wholeness or to become aware of the wholeness that is already present. Or how long it takes to move into the promised land, which we also call heaven on earth. And don Miguel calls it a New Dream.

I am giving you some thoughts to ponder from this week’s message:

“In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
John 1:1

Your word is the power you use to create.
Are you using it to create positive or negative results in your life?

  • Be impeccable with your word. Impeccable comes from the Latin pecatus which means “sin.” The im in impeccable means “without,” so impeccable means “without sin.” (A sin is anything you do which goes against yourself.)
  • Being impeccable with your word is the correct use of your energy. This means to use your energy in the direction of truth and love for yourself.
  • I am being impeccable with my word when: I love myself, I will express that love in my interactions with others. My action will produce a like action.
  • I am not being impeccable with my word when: I am expressing anger against anyone for I am expressing it against myself.

I leave you with the acronym for S I N – self imposed nonsense…

Join me next week for the second agreement – Don’t Take Anything Personally.

You are a blessing in my life,
Rev. Patricia Bessey
