“When you make an agreement stick to it. Don’t use your words idly. Avoid making any agreements, contracts, or commitments, formal or otherwise, with anyone that you don’t feel sure about being able to honor. This applies as much to an informal arrangement to meet your friend at eight as it does to signing a marriage contract. It’s always OK to say you don’t know, until you’re sure one way or the other or are forced to take a position, in which case you’ll know quick enough.
Obviously you are always free to change your mind, but when you do, you must be sure to inform everyone involved, so that the situation can be fairly renegotiated, and also be willing to accept full responsibility for the consequences. Every time you goof out on an agreement, however insignificant it seems at the time, you’re weakening your link with the universal machinery, which causes obstructions in the flow of energy/chi between you and the world, resulting in poor manifesting ability.”
Stephen Russell, in “Barefoot Doctor’s Guide to the TAO”
