Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing, there is a field. I will meet you there. –Rumi
My intent is to live alive and free, to be myself, to be authentic, and to be fully present.
My commitment is to realize my full potential and support others in doing the same.
I agree to attune with spirit and follow the calling of my soul on behalf of the wellbeing of the whole.
I acknowledge and honor my primary intention for the Highest Good – concerning the Earth, all my relations, and myself. I recognize that I may never know for certain what the “answers” are, but my intention is to learn from my experience and to move in the direction of the highest good for the whole.
I am willing to open my heart, still my mind and be in compassionate service to all life.
When I find myself going into reactivity I agree to become present and awake with my experience, and to explore feeling inward instead of leaning out, unconsciously defending myself for projecting onto others.
I agree to be honest and compassionate with my communications – to speak from my heart, maintain connection, and to be true to my word.
I agree to keep my agreements, to follow my heart in making commitments, to negotiate changes if I need to, and to ask for help when I need it.
I agree to listen respectfully to the communication of others and tune into their deepest meaning, noticing any inner reactions and taking responsibility for my feelings while staying present to truly listen.
I agree to come from a sense of cooperation and caring in my interactions with others, respecting that our objectives are often the same, although our positions and methods may differ. I recognize that everyone is a unique expression of the divine, and I honor the intelligence of body, mind, and emotions as uniquely expressed through each of us.
I agree to take responsibility for asking for and receiving acknowledgement and for acknowledging others.
I agree to take responsibility for my creations, my reactions, my experience and my relationships. Therefore, I recognize there is no one to blame, nothing to defend, only wisdom and compassion to embody.
I agree to take the time to establish rapport and re-connect with anyone with whom I feel out of harmony as soon as it is possible.
I agree to offer at least one solution any time I present a concern. I agree to take concerns, complaints and upsets to the person(s) with whom I can resolve them, at the earliest opportunity. I agree not to criticize or complain to someone who cannot do something about my complaint, and I will redirect others to do the same.
I agree to foster an environment of genuine collaboration in which all people, including myself, feel empowered to express our individual and collective potential.
I agree to take care of myself and to honor my own sense of balance with conscious choice in areas like sleep, nutrition, exercise, and thinking, so that I may live from a place of resource.
I agree to choose and re-choose to participate in this community. It is my choice. I recognize my responsibility to contribute what is alive and true in my heart today.
While honoring all these agreements and taking them seriously, I aspire to do so with an attitude of lightheartedness, recognizing that joy is the natural by-product of living my authentic self.
I agree to treat others and myself with love, compassion, encouragement and patience when we struggle with these intentions. I recognize the perfection of the imperfection in each of us.
I am committed to being Total—to do my best to be complete with each day—to live as though today is my first and my last day alive. I agree to live this moment to the best and fullest of my capacity.
