His posts among the first two can be summed up as follows: “Be aware of the chords that dictate your reality and have the discipline to change it.” You could get a little more out of his writing, but not much. Unfortunately, its indications do not go far beyond a well-designed “Just do it”. Amazing book! I love love, I love his tone and the voice with which he writes. This book will help you discover the power of acceptance at the deepest level (as the title suggests!) to find joy, no matter what, especially if you inevitably have stimulating relationships in your life. To do this, Ruiz proposes four new agreements that they must now conclude with themselves: the most harmful of these agreements confirm that you are never enough; That you are constantly lagging behind a strange ideal. The result? The agreements you have made, knowingly and unknowingly, are the fundamental source of suffering and aspiration in your life. Worse, they make you a vector of suffering in the world around you. 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. [4] 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. [1] In these agreements, we can tell ourselves who they are, how to behave, what is possible and what is impossible.

[1] 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. [1] The book states that these self-limiting agreements cause unnecessary suffering. [1] 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. [5] 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. [6] 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. By pacting with these four most important chords, an individual is able to dramatically influence the amount of happiness he feels in his life, regardless of external circumstances. [6] In any case, the mythology he introduces is aside, his writing is powerful and his treatment of the illusory nature of reality is clear and convincing.
