When we see that it is our chords that dominate our lives, and that we do not love the dream of our lives, we must change the chords. When we are finally ready to change our agreements, there will be four very powerful agreements that will help us break the agreements that come from fear and exhaust our energy. Since I wrote this article in 2010, I have read all of Miguel`s books, all his sons` books and some of the books written by his apprentices, including the excellent Wisdom Book Everything Toltec. I had the pleasure of participating in a workshop led by Miguel and Jose. I continue to support the Toltec Road as a great way to live. There are thousands of agreements that you have made with yourself, with other people, with your dream of life, with God, with society, with your parents, with your spouse, with your children. But the main agreements are the ones you have with yourself. In these agreements, you tell yourself who you are, what you feel, what you believe and how you behave. The result is what you call your personality. In these agreements, you say, „It`s me. That`s what I think. I can do certain things, and some things I can`t do. It`s a reality, it`s imagination.
it is possible, it is impossible. Just as the government has a book of laws that govern the dream of society, our belief system is the book of laws that determines our personal dream. All these laws exist in our minds, we believe them, and the judge in us is based on those rules. The judge has ruled and the victim is facing guilt and punishment. But who says there`s justice in this dream? True justice pays only once for every mistake. True injustice pays more than once for every mistake. 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. Again, if you want to have a more complete picture of Don Miguel Ruiz`s worldview, read his books, or at least the four chords. Or if you`ve already made up your mind, maybe it`s time to let it go.
I do not want to prevent you from discussing topics with other commentators, if they are interested, I express only my own disinterest in the continuation of this thread. Miguel has already mentioned John:1 several times. For example, on January 1, 2012, he posted on Facebook, www.facebook.com/donMiguelRuiz/posts/10150478684012771) „The Gospel of John in the Bible expresses very clearly the power of the Word: `In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word is God.` Whatever language we speak, our intention is manifested in the word. We don`t see the truth because we`re blind. What blinds us are all these false beliefs that we have in mind. We must be right and hurt others.
