The 4 Agreements Meaning

One of the most important teachings of wisdom in the Toltec tradition is that we all dream — to dream of a unique vision and experience of the universe. It`s at the beginning of “The Four Accords,” and my experience is that a lot of people slip into that part and go to the chords. We accept all these ideas because we make agreements with ourselves and with the world. We create an inner judge, and that judge judges and punishes us constantly if we do not live up to our agreements. In this trial, we create the guilty victim and we are always punished. Ruiz says it is the most important and difficult agreement to meet. Thinking about speech brings the idea to life. To be impeccable with your word means to use your energy towards truth and love for yourself and therefore for others. “The abuse of the word is the way we kill each other and keep each other in a state of fear and doubt.” It`s like poison. We use the word against ourselves through negative self-speech, and we use the word against others through gossip; The support of others to support our point of view. “Tell yourself how much you love yourself. Use this word to break all the chords that make you suffer. They said, “I met someone who had read this book… I`m not going to do that. Apparently, they didn`t get any of that, and that`s why they ran you over.

So you haven`t read the book, and you`re able to express such strong opinions about the book? The study of Toltec`s history makes no sense when it comes to understanding this book. It`s like looking back at the old Hindu and deciding that there is nothing to gain from yoga or meditation. People have always figured out how to manipulate their minds, and even though they may have seen it in terms of magic or religion, the methods they have learned are not negligible for that reason alone. We can now (better) understand what really happens when a person uses meditation, visualization, etc. to change their thought processes. This book is nothing but a guide to self-gap and love of everything and everyone. Pushed to its limits, it frees you to be able to love those you could normally avoid because of the negative emotions they create in you. The ability to see the chain of events that range from something a person says to the emotional reaction in you is the basis of many cognitive behavioral therapies.
