Here, Ruiz`s first three chords have the rubber for the moment of the road. The other three agreements will enter into force with the final agreement. Although I haven`t read this book, the four points I understand are quite biblical. Shouldn`t we be people of integrity with healthy boundaries who value yes and no? I think you judge quickly. I understand that spiritualism can be dangerous if it is not directed by the Spirit, but when a Christian firmly masters the biblical teachings, I feel that these four tenants are only confirming the biblical truths. I am now more compelled to read the writings of this Lord because I stumbled upon your position. My last review was 12 Rules For Life by Jordan B Peterson. I think it`s a great book, but when I put it on the shelf, I remembered that so Peterson`s advice is that the basis is always based on principles. It confused me for a while when my mind and heart struggled with the main base to change their lives. Then I spied on Don Miguel Ruiz`s four chords on my shelf almost next to my newcomer. Agreements, yes, I remembered reading the Four Accords years ago and found the concept of agreements inspiring as an approach to the journey of life and relationships from the point of view of agreements and not principles. So I reread the book and here is my review. I hope you like it.
As a child, I believed what my family, temple, community, advertising and company told me to believe. I have made agreements about what is right and wrong, attractive and ugly, appropriate and inappropriate. Not that there is anything wrong with this system by nature; We need social norms. But Ruiz proposes to question our long-term beliefs on our path to individual freedom. Finally, I see the immense value in the Four Agreements, but the empowerment of the agreements needs the Holy Spirit. Interestingly, Ruiz closes the book by talking about becoming a spiritual warrior. It all starts with consciousness — unfortunately, most people aren`t aware of their condition or situation. Consciousness is the first step. Ruiz encourages us to get used to these four agreements. Make it a goal and realize that it will take a lot of effort on our side.
He admits that there will be times when we do not live according to the four agreements. Learn and be honest with yourself through the process. Start again in these moments, do not accuse or judge. We need to know that failure is part of transformation, and if you experience agreements through practice and failure, it becomes easier. If you fall, you will reopen. Brain Mason writes: But what should be a Christian`s reaction to this book? Tell us Brian. What should be my reaction to the Four Accords – What I should believe, what I should read, observe, write, say ????? You are selfish and narcissistic because you project your own revelations onto others and say that what you think should be “the answer.” I`m sad because it`s arrogant and selfish and you`re using the Bible to argue something that probably doesn`t even interest God in reality.
