While it`s great to be conscientious, as you use it, this agreement can be difficult to completely respect. It`s a great goal you`re aiming for and a good direction you can work towards. I realize that it was written a few years ago… and I still have to depart from some of the author`s misunderstandings about wisdom in “The Four Accords.” Note that the beginning of the book on domestication and dreams is an important preface to understanding the power of new chords. If it were not clear before, I will make it clear that I am not interested in being an apologist for Don Miguel Ruiz or having debates about his intentions. My question of whether feelings guide judgments was rhetorical, and I do not expect an answer, because psychological research has already answered this question for me. Emotions may not be an important part of simple perception judgments, such as. B if the word “was” has been replaced by “east.” (Although in fact, sometimes emotions also influence simple perceptions.) But emotions are always involved in judgments of meaning, meaning, meaning and intent. My feeling is that Ruiz was not ashamed of it by replacing “what” with “is.” I could be wrong. But I also think it`s not important enough to continue to discuss other things that I have on the agenda. I also found it strange to judge a book about the behavior of a person who claims to have read it and about the elderly who are the ancestors of the author of the book. That is why I did not respond to Cccc`s comment.
If the commentator explains why he/she thought the four chords meant that people were behaving ruthlessly and selfishly, I might have received an answer. As things stand, I support the idea that — Toltec or not – these principles are a healthy way of living and agreeing with the good practices supported by modern psychology: while agreements are sometimes too simplified, it is always a great little 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. Glad to hear that you have found a value of consciousness in the mail. And thank you for the information about the nuggets – I had never heard of them, and it sounds very interesting. At the end of the day, I think it is important that his agreements have the consequences you want. The book is based on a series of spiritual beliefs, held by Toltec`s seniors, to help readers transform their lives into a new experience of freedom, happiness and love.  According to the author, everything a man does is based on agreements he has made with himself, with others, with God and with life itself.  In these agreements, we can tell ourselves who they are, how to behave, what is possible and what is impossible.  Some agreements that create individuals may not cause problems, but there are certain arrangements that come from a place of fear and have the power to deplete emotional energy and reduce a person`s self-esteem.
 The book states that these self-limiting agreements cause unnecessary suffering.  Ruiz also believes that to find personal joy, one must get rid of socially imposed and fear-based agreements that can unconsciously influence the individual`s behaviour and thinking.  Another fundamental premise of the book suggests that much of the suffering is created and that most people have the ability to transform themselves and the negative thoughts they have about the situations in their lives.  The author identifies the sources of unhappiness in life and proposes four beneficial agreements that can be concluded with oneself to improve their general state of well-being.
