Understanding The 4 Agreements

We learn how to act and what we should believe and accept as normal. Ruiz says we should ask ourselves why we accept them and live because we have not chosen these rules and agreements. As for intransition, this word certainly has the connotation of perfectionism, and if we take it that way, we would indeed go crazy. (Besides, the impeccability and other agreements you make with yourself, not the requirements that Ruiz imposes on you.) On the other hand, if you engage perfectly with your word as your goal, if you commit to be as honest and kind as possible with your words, without waiting for perfection of yourself or to fight if you are too short, this agreement could improve your well-being with yourself. If you`re having trouble understanding something, assume you know what it means. When things become clear, you can see that it means something completely different. I also found it strange to judge a book about the behavior of a person who claims to have read it and about the elderly who are the ancestors of the author of the book. That is why I did not respond to Cccc`s comment. If the commentator explains why he/she thought the four chords meant that people were behaving ruthlessly and selfishly, I might have received an answer. As things stand, I agree with the idea that –Toltec or not — these principles are a healthy way of living and aligning with the good practices supported by modern psychology: Well said, coleen. Often people don`t see the choices they have, how they can leave negative experiences behind. You seem to understand how to survive the past and achieve happiness in life.

Communicating with ourselves, not taking things personally (#2) gives us the opportunity to look inward, to find and change the old arrangements and beliefs — most of the lies of our domestication in childhood — that involve us emotionally and push us to react. The author of the article describes precisely the „dream“ of people that distorts what people say or do. It is a powerful gift from Toltec Wisdom. With consciousness and understanding comes forgiveness. I`m sorry for our past and for the persistent „mistakes“ we still have in relation to the agreements we still have. Forgive us for letting ourselves and the people around us suffer because of these illusions. I`m sorry for the suffering that others cause because of their illusions. Why not try to break one of the hundreds or thousands of agreements you have now? Maybe you`re thinking you`re not good at painting — break the watercolors and have fun creating something.
