I did a bit of research on the history of ancient toltec and it wasn`t pretty, not pretty at all. With this example, this book is written for ordinary people, most of whom are in this harassed and hasty society. I cannot say it more concisely or clearly. I met a person who had read this book, well, I tried to meet people again, she crossed me so much speed that I felt like a speed bump on the road, then again, she was a great coffee drinker (Speed Freak), like most people I know anyway today , a player like that. I find that 90% of the people I meet today still have something up their sleeve. Those of us who are docile, friendly, friendly, calm, calm, respectful, giving, open, affectionate and do not believe in the society « me » that encompasses the world today, we are the truly lonely, the few, and are impossible to follow. We are the ones who, in the good old days, were sitting in a very, very rioting circle, listening very carefully, waiting for our chance to leave and create our own tribe. We`ve been domesticated since day one, when the book removes that right away, if you don`t have a belief system that your people (others) basically use to get out of life what you want. Go back to the original Toltecs, see how they treated their women, now we allow our women to treat our men like that. I`m not pro-feminist all day, but this cycle of hurting each other will never end, while people read books like that, this book reeks people go everywhere to get what you get from the mentality of life, it takes hypocrisy to a new level, but again , we are now all hypocrites anyway and have been for a while. The Four Accords is a book that sets up a Mexican indigenous alternative to exploiting the nature of reality and existence. And although the author, Don Miguel Ruiz, identifies as « Toltec, » a broader label of neo-shamanism is probably more realistic.
Well, do what you can with what you have, where you are — you can`t ask anything from yourself anymore. Thank you, Danyal. It is becoming more and more difficult to summarize books like The Four Agreements. I read and read The Power of Now several times and thought about how I was going to do it in a summary. Although we know that most assumptions are unfounded, we often continue to give them the weight of complete agreements. I have neither read nor planned this book. I saw these four chords on the wall in a yoga teacher house and laughed. These tenants are what Saniel Bonder, the founder of Waking Down In Mutality, would call hyper-masculine ideas to improve us. They could improve our lives for a while, but like all self-improvement projects, they imply that ultimately we need more self-insurance. Although there is an important place for the action component in life (the male strength), it is necessary to reconcile it with the softer outfit and to accept the maternity qualities of the deep feminine.
Truly loving us for and with all our human weaknesses is the key to the non-judgment of ourselves and others, and a surprising impudence. This can pave the way for a deeper understanding that involves knowing us as an unlimited presence of Devine. Here is a spontaneous list of my 4 chords: (1) Give yourself a break – always a drawback of the book is that some of the chords are too extreme and, if you take them literally, they can cause additional problems in your life if taken without a proverbial grain of salt. However, with a little balance and a sense of openness, these chords can change and alleviate stress. Here is an explanation of the four agreements. I read this and I fully understand the points he was trying to make. It is a little more sustained when you read the voice of knowledge.
