What Does The Four Agreements Mean

Posted by lotta

Overcoming this problem means knowing who you are, because then you don`t need to have the acceptance of others, and nothing they say will hurt you. Everyone looks at the world from a different point of view, and they should also see your own point of view. The way we make assumptions is because we believe we know what others think and feel. We think we know their point of view, their dream. We forget that our convictions are only our point of view, based on our belief system and personal experience, which have nothing to do with what others think and feel. We assume that everyone judges us, abuses us, harasses us and blames us for the way we do it ourselves. That is why we oppose us before others have the opportunity to refuse us. If we think that way, it will be difficult to be in the world. Take action and be aware of what you want or don`t want; Applause and make assumptions about things that others tell you. Respect other points of view and avoid just to be right. Respect yourself and be honest with yourself. Stop waiting for people around you what`s in your head.

”There is only one agreement left, but it is one that allows the other three to become entrenched habits. The fourth agreement is about the action of the first three: always do your best. In all circumstances, do your best, no more and no less. […] But remember that your best will never be equal any moment. Everything is alive and changing all the time, so the best will sometimes be of high quality, and sometimes it won`t be so good. I also found it strange to judge a book about the behaviour 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 correspond to good practices supported by modern psychology: then, Ruiz discusses what he calls the dream of the world.
