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 life and are consistent with the good practices supported by modern psychology: if I have to name four betrayals that I usually do to myself, will they? I have neither read nor planned this book. I saw these four chords on the wall in a yoga teacher house and laughed. These tenants are what Saniel Bonder, the founder of Waking Down In Mutality, would call hyper-masculine ideas to improve us. They could improve our lives for a while, but like all self-improvement projects, they imply that ultimately we need more self-insurance. Although there is an important place for the action component in life (the male strength), it is necessary to reconcile it with the softer outfit and to accept the maternity qualities of the deep feminine. Truly loving us for and with all our human weaknesses is the key to the non-judgment of ourselves and others, and a surprising impudence. This can pave the way for a deeper understanding that involves knowing us as an unlimited presence of Devine.
Here is a spontaneous list of my 4 agreements: (1) Take a break over and over again – so if we do our best, both in respect of the four agreements and in the steps we take in the world, we can be really happy. Thank you, Allan, for sharing your wisdom. I am honored that someone of your stature would take the time to read my article and clarify the importance of the agreements. This is how all this refers to the four agreements that Ruiz proposes in hindsight. Because we create a gap between ourselves and the world, the universe, and because we create the dichotomy of the judge/victim within ourselves, we live in tension, we feel non-etheistic and dishonest. We make toxic agreements with ourselves and our relationships with others. The four agreements help us replace these toxic agreements with newer, happier agreements. I interpreted “is” as living in the present and “was” the representation of past behaviors. Tension change probably intentionally. The best way to develop knowledge is to bypass other evaluations and read the material and develop your own knowledge.
Because I also look at topics in relation to me My opinion is that we all get something different from any book, based on completely different emotional reactions, based on the observations of a group that reads all four chords at the same time. There were about 50 of them, and I recommended it to a brother and sister who had a childhood trauma. He read the first chapters in tears, but he understood the healing power in himself. The first one only me off, but I understood that he was drawing why we shouldn`t believe that way. Be immaculate with your word. Don`t take anything personal. Don`t make any assumptions. Always do your best.
The light and the truth. Miguel Ruiz proposes that we create much of our own suffering by believing in the voices of our inner judge and creating a story of our sacrifice. We can choose to change our history by not associating ourselves with the inner judge. Tags:analysis, donation miguel ruiz, do not take it personally, mutual aid, the four agreements twenty years after its publication, its teachings are still widely practiced by millions of people around the world. Its author, the Mexican shaman Don Miguel Ruiz, draws on the ancient wisdom of Toltec to articulate four councils (so-called “agreements”) which, if followed in daily life, must indicate the path of happiness and self-fulfillment. I can guess the rebuttal: But that`s not really what he meant, it just distorts the agreements, apparently, it shouldn`t justify treating others like. The fact is that Don Miguel Ruiz n
