The Four Agreements Simplified

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. By gradually continuing the process, you can change things gradually for the better. “The next three agreements really came from the first agreement. The second agreement is nothing to take personally. The book is based on a series of spiritual beliefs held by Toltec`s seniors to help readers transform their lives into a new experience of freedom, happiness and love. [4] According to the author, everything a man does is based on agreements he has made with himself, with others, with God and with life itself. [1] In these agreements, we can tell ourselves who they are, how to behave, what is possible and what is impossible. [1] Some agreements that create individuals may not cause problems, but there are certain arrangements that come from a place of fear and have the power to deplete emotional energy and reduce a person`s self-esteem. [1] The book states that these self-limiting agreements cause unnecessary suffering. [1] Ruiz also believes that to find personal joy, one must get rid of socially imposed and fear-based agreements that can unconsciously influence the individual`s behaviour and thinking. [5] Another fundamental premise of the book suggests that much of the suffering is created and that most people have the ability to transform themselves and the negative thoughts they have about the situations in their lives. [6] The author identifies the sources of unhappiness in life and proposes four beneficial agreements that can be concluded with oneself to improve their general state of well-being. By pacting with these four most important chords, an individual is able to dramatically influence the amount of happiness he feels in his life, regardless of external circumstances.

[6] In addition to the book and audiobook, there is also an ebook, a four-colour picture book, a map deck and an online course. [1] His posts among the top two can be summed up as follows: “Be aware of the agreements that dictate your reality and have the discipline to change it.” You could get a little more out of his writing, but not much. Unfortunately, its indications do not go far beyond a well-designed “Just do it”. 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. The ancient Toltecs called themselves dream masters because they understood that we all live more in a dream than in an “objective reality”. And the good news is that we all have the power to change our dream.
