The story of you is all you know about yourself. And when I say that, I talk to you, know what you believe, not to you, to man, what you really are. As you can see, I make the distinction between you and you, because one of you is real and one of you is not real. You, the physical man, are real; You`re the truth. You, knowledge, you are not real; They`re virtual. You exist only because of the agreements you have with yourself and with the others around you. You, know, you come from the words you hear in your head, from all the opinions of the people you love, people you don`t like, people you know and, above all, people you never know. DON`T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS. Find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as possible to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With this agreement, you can completely change your life. Now Miguel Ruiz joins his son Don Jose Ruiz to offer a new perspective on the four agreements and a powerful new agreement to transform our lives into our personal skies: the fifth agreement.
The Fifth Accord takes us to a deeper level of awareness of the power of the self and brings us back to the authenticity with which we were born. In this captivating sequel to the book that has changed the lives of millions of people around the world, we are reminded of the greatest gift we can give ourselves: the freedom to be who we really are. In the four agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz revealed how the process of our education, or “domestication,” could make us forget the wisdom with which we were born. Throughout our lives, we have made many agreements that go against ourselves and cause unnecessary suffering. The four agreements help us break these self-limitation agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us personal freedom, happiness and love. Who`s talking in your head? You think it`s you. But if you are the one who is talking, who is listening? You know, you`re the one who talks in your head and tells you what you are. You, man, listen, but you, man, existed long before you knew it. You existed long before you understood all these words, before you learned to speak, and like any child, before you learned to speak, you were completely authentic. You didn`t pretend to be what you weren`t.
Without knowing it, you have completely trusted yourself; They loved each other on their own. Before you learned, you were totally free to be who you really are, because all those opinions and stories of other people weren`t already in your head. 10. The dream of the second attention: The warriors you see the problem is not really knowledge; the problem is the belief in a distortion of knowledge — and that is what we call lying. What is truth, and what is the lie? What is real and what is virtual? Can you see the difference, or do you think the voice in your head every time it speaks and distorts the truth, while you make sure that what you believe is how things really are? Is it true that you are not a good person and that you are never good enough? Is it true that you don`t deserve to be happy? Is it true that you are not worthy of love? Don Miguel Ruiz is the international bests and songwriters of the Toltec Wisdom series, including The Four Agreements (over 7 years on the New York Times bestseller list), The Mastery of Love and The Voice of Knowledge. He continues to share the wisdom of the ancient Toltec through conferences, workshops and trips to holy places around the world. People are born with the power of creation, and we constantly create stories with the words we have learned. Each of us uses the word to make our opinion, to express our point of view.
