The 4 Agreements Explained
We have to break many old arrangements and change a lot of domesticated beliefs to really keep a space for someone who hurts us or who is angry without judging to withdraw, defend, accuse, intellectualize, share their dream. Although we know that most assumptions are unfounded, we often continue to give them the weight of complete agreements. With consciousness and understanding comes forgiveness. I`m sorry for our past and for the persistent “mistakes” we still have in relation to the agreements we still have. Forgive us for letting ourselves and the people around us suffer because of these illusions. I`m sorry for the suffering that others cause because of their illusions. I interpreted “is” as living in the present and “was” the representation of past behaviors. Tension change probably intentionally. The best way to develop knowledge is to bypass other evaluations and read the material and develop your own knowledge. Because I also look at topics in relation to me My opinion is that we all get something different from any book, based on completely different emotional reactions, based on the observations of a group that reads all four chords at the same time.
There were about 50 of them, and I recommended it to a brother and sister who had a childhood trauma. He read the first chapters in tears, but he understood the healing power in himself. The first one only me off, but I understood that he was drawing why we shouldn`t believe that way. Be immaculate with your word. Don`t take anything personal. Don`t make any assumptions. Always do your best. The light and the truth.
The four agreements show us that there is another way. By freeing ourselves from the structures and expectations of society, we can enter into new agreements for ourselves. 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. 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. 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.
