The 4 Agreements Review

Did you have an inspiration for our revision of the four agreements? Have you read it? If so, what were you thinking? How do we know the correct interpretation of Ruiz`s reference to John 1:1-5? We could break one of its four agreements and make the assumption of its intent. Or if you`re really interested in the truth, you might ask him. At the end of the day, I think it is important that his agreements have the consequences you want. In my last review, I address the four chords written by the author Don Miguel Ruiz. I`m going to do things I liked about the book and some things I didn`t like. I will then mention for what kind of people this kind of book is perfect and finally I will give the book a definitive score (out of 10). If the agreements are sometimes too simplified, it is still a small book with some heavy ideas. Focusing on one of these chords can dramatically improve your life and reduce stress; Focusing on all four can really change a lot of people`s lives. If followed in a general and non-fanatical way, these proposals can help you reduce a large amount of stress by helping you avoid patterns of thought and behavior that create frustration, accusations, hurt emotions and other negative emotions. 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. Ruiz says that a wall of fog distorts our perception of who we are: „It`s like living in the middle of a fog that doesn`t let us see beyond our own nose.” This fog, he explains, is formed by unverified agreements we have made with ourselves and others — beliefs about who we are and who we should be, and masks we put on to hide our perceived imperfections. If we have established relationship agreements (regardless of the relationship) that the exchanges are for information purposes in the name of intimacy, not a complaint or a request to repair anything to protect me from the emotional reactions I create myself…

That`s impressive. This is a vulnerable intimacy and can go anywhere (no attachment to the result). Where it`s going to go is more truth, especially if the person who hears this sharing can go into his emotional body and find out what`s going on in response to sharing and then share YOUR emotional truth right now.
