Don Miguel’s agreements

I had read on the my friend fb post about Don Miguel’s agreements, and think it is good to be spread. Don Miguel’s 4 agreements :

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word:

Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally:

Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions:

Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best:

Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

On 25-27 November 2013 there is world culture forum. This event is festival film from around the world, to promote culture from other country and had been postpone for 30 years. On the second day, i watch movie called Vizontele, although i actually want to watch Fukushima Hulla Girl because i don’t know the schedule has been changed.

This film is started in the turkey area, with Emin, the enginer take a bath on outside his house and being bullied by people. And the scene continue with son of the mayor in the village going to participate in war as soldier. Then the Mayor get news that governor sent vizontele to the village, which they are waiting for so long. But the mayor itself actually don’t know what is vizontele and called it radio with picture in it. And it goes on with people on the village look at cinema, with they already look the same film several times and already remember the dialogue outside their head.

The governor agent going on the car bring the vizontele to the village. But they are already late to deliver the vizontele and need to going back quickly. Meanwhile in the village, the village people make ceremony to accept the vizontele, and the mayor give speech about vizontele advantage which is people will not need going to cinema and can hear news at the same time with other place in the earth. And the governor agent is came to the village and deliver the vizontele but just give quick explanation how to use it and then leaving the village. The mayor is not understand how to turn on the vizontele and have mixed feeling happy and confused on the same time.

The cinema owner feel insecure about viziontele effect so spreading rumor about viziontele is evil arround the village. Meanwhile, the mayor remember there is crazy radio fixer called Emin that can fix any radio and asked him to help to turn on the vizontele. Emin willing to help with condition that it need to be dismantle first to understand how it is work. Because the mayor is desperate then he is agree, but Emin look confuse how to get back like before and after sometime it can be build back.

And then came the first launch of viziontele, and the mayor give speech that it will change the village. And when it is turn on no signal and just ant on the screen. Emil say they need going higher and then they tried on more higher place several time but it is failed too. Then Emin had idea to setup on the highest mountain, so they hiking the mountain and then come to the top. So they setup the viziontele and their fatigue is paid with the viziontele is get signal and can deliver news. But unlucky it is iran news and all of them upset. So they going back to village, then some of staff tried to push all the button and then the channel change to turkish news and they look very happy.

So story continue with first show on the mayor house and shown news about turkey wars and there is 3 causalities. But the bad news is one of the causalities is mayor son. And the wife of mayor is feel sad and buried the viziontele as iconic replacement of burial of the beloved son with help of Emil. And the story is ended with the girlfriend of the dead son married with cinema owner son with dowry is new viziontele.
