“If you feel good, everything is good around you, when everything is great around you, everything is happy. You love everything around you because you love yourself. Because you love who you are. Because you`re happy with your life. You are happy with the film you are producing, happy with your agreements with life. You`re at peace, and you`re happy. You live in this state of happiness, where everything is so wonderful, and everything is so beautiful. In this state of happiness, you make love all the time with everything you perceive. “Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Accords All humanity is in search of truth, justice and beauty. We are eternally searching for the truth because we believe only in the lies we have stored in our minds. We seek justice because in the belief system we have, there is no justice.
We are looking for beauty because no matter how beautiful a person is, we do not believe that that person has beauty. We search and continue to search when everything is already in us. There is no truth. Everywhere we turn our heads, all we see is the truth, but with the chords and beliefs we have stored in our minds, we have no eyes for that truth. At first glance of the four chords, I thought, “It`s not that obvious” and it seemed pretty simple. When I read the book, I realized that simplicity was misleading. Dreaming is the main function of the mind, and the mind dreams 24 hours a day. He dreams when the brain is awake, and he also dreams when the brain sleeps. The difference is that when the brain is awake, there is a material framework that makes things linear. When we go to sleep, we don`t have the frame, and the dream tends to change constantly. Don Miguel Ruiz identifies four self-limiting beliefs that hinder the experience of freedom, true happiness and love. Each of us is born with a certain personal strength, which we rebuild every day after our tranquillity.
Unfortunately, we spend all our personal power first 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 things 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 any agreement? You need a very strong will to resume the four chords, but if you can start living your life with these chords, the transformation in your life will be amazing. You will see the drama of hell disappear before your eyes. Instead of living in a dream of hell, you will create a new dream of personal dream from heaven. In the best-selling The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz gives four principles as a guide to developing personal freedom and love, happiness and peace. “Nothing that others do is because of you. It`s up to himself. All men live in their own dreams, in their own minds; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in. If we take something personal, we assume that they know what is in our world and we try to impose our world on their world.
Even if a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you. What they say, what they do, and the opinions they give correspond to the agreements they have in their own minds. “Don Miguel Ruiz, the Four Accords Every time you make a deal, all the power you used to create it comes back to you. If you accept these four new agreements, they will create enough personal power for you to change the whole system of your old agreements.
