In the first part of this 2-part video, we learn how the “domestication” of men and how all the rules and values of our family and society are imposed on us by a system of punishment and reward. As young children, our true nature is to love and be happy, to explore and enjoy life; We are absolutely authentic. But then we learn to be what others think we should, and because it`s not normal that we are who we are, we start pretending we`re not what we`re not. When we are teenagers, we have learned to judge ourselves, to punish ourselves and to reward ourselves after agreements that we have never chosen. The four agreements help us break self-limitation agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us freedom, happiness and love. If your faith creates deep happiness in you, then I say, keep it. If they cause trouble, if the beliefs of others are different, consciousness can leave you with the choice of what you believe and what you let go. Many of our convictions, our concepts, our agreements were nourished to us as “truth” when we were young, and we accepted them literally and completely. The beginning of the four chords is about how we were domesticated by our caregivers in a “dream” of life.
The only dream they gave us was the one they lived, which they received most often from their parents, etc. 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. The fourth agreement allows readers to have a better understanding of the progress made in achieving their goals in life. This agreement involves the integration of the first three agreements into daily life and the exploitation of its own potential.  It is a matter of doing the best that can be managed individually, which varies from the different situations and circumstances that the individual may encounter. Ruiz believes that if you judge yourself and do your best at all times, you will be able to avoid remorse.  By integrating the first three chords and doing the best in all facets of life, the individual will be able to lead a life without grief or self-awareness.  If we agree with ourselves on not taking things personally (#2) gives us the opportunity to look inward, find and change the old arrangements and beliefs — most of the time, the lies of our domestication in childhood — that hook us emotionally and push us to react. The author of the article describes precisely the “dream” of people that distorts what people say or do. It is a powerful gift from Toltec Wisdom.
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.
