A single agreement is not such a problem, but we have many agreements that make us suffer, that make us fail in life. If you want to lead a life of joy and accomplishment, you must find the courage to break the agreements that are based on fear and that claim your personal power. Agreements that come from fear require us to expend a lot of energy, but the agreements that come from love help us to save energy and even to produce energy. A wonderful bookI love prayers at the end, they are for people of all religions or not, and I feel connected to the universe by listening to this chapter every day. Thanks to Mr. Ruiz Each of us is born with a certain personal strength that we rebuild every day after our tranquillity. Unfortunately, we first spend all our personal strength to create all these agreements and then to respect those agreements. Our personal power is dissipated by all the agreements we have created, and the result is that we feel powerless. We have just enough power to survive every day, because most of them are used to maintain the chords that hold us back in the dream of the planet. How can we change the whole dream of our lives if we don`t have the power to change even the slightest agreement? The four chords are provided in an easily understandable way and apply to everyday life. The concept of living in a dream is also easy to assimilate. The only agony I had was with the last 11 minutes, where he gives a prayer “Christan” that sounds in total contradiction with the wisdom of Toltec given in the rest of the book.
This end made me doubt the credibility of the authors. I recommend to listen until prayer, then stop and you will be satisfied with the wisdom of the Toltec tradition. In the Four Accords, Don Miguel reveals the source of self-sustaining agreements that deprive us of joy and cause unnecessary suffering. If we are prepared to amend these agreements, there are four falsely simple but powerful agreements that we can adopt as guiding principles. Based on the ancient wisdom of Toltec, the four chords offer a powerful code of conduct that can quickly transform our lives into a new experience of freedom, true happiness and love. I was looking for a book that could open my mind to new thoughts and perspectives after reading Dan Millman`s amazing The Way of The Peaceful Warrior. It is sad to say that there are very few books that can really change your life, despite the bold assertions of many, but this path and the path of the peaceful warrior (at least for me) mentioned above has really contributed to a remarkable change in my life. If they find out that you spend your days thinking, “It has to be more to live than that, then you`re right!” And these two books could help you see this opportunity. I would recommend this book to anyone involved in depression, trust or dissatisfaction in life. I often listen to this book.
The lessons, even if they are simple in concept, are profound. Enjoy x If you can keep an open mind and let go of all the hooks you know and hear the story, you might have the power to finally get freedom in your life.
