8. The four agreements seem to be common sense. Do you think it is easy or difficult to practice these agreements? Has the practice of one or more of the four agreements changed your life? As for intransition, this word certainly has the connotation of perfectionism, and if we take it that way, we would indeed go crazy. (Besides, the impeccability and other agreements you make with yourself, not the requirements that Ruiz imposes on you.) On the other hand, if you engage perfectly with your word as your goal, if you commit to be as honest and kind as possible with your words, without waiting for perfection of yourself or to fight if you are too short, this agreement could improve your well-being with yourself. I have neither read nor planned this book. I saw these four chords on the wall in a yoga teacher house and laughed. These tenants are what Saniel Bonder, the founder of Waking Down In Mutality, would call hyper-masculine ideas to improve us. They could improve our lives for a while, but like all self-improvement projects, they imply that ultimately we need more self-insurance. Although there is an important place for the action component in life (the male strength), it is necessary to reconcile it with the softer outfit and to accept the maternity qualities of the deep feminine. Truly loving us for and with all our human weaknesses is the key to the non-judgment of ourselves and others, and a surprising impudence.

This can pave the way for a deeper understanding that involves knowing us as an unlimited presence of Devine. Here is a spontaneous list of my 4 chords: (1) Take a break — again and again The Four Agreements©, was published in 1997 and sold about 9 million times. He has been on the New York Times bestseller list for nearly a decade. Everything we do is based on agreements we have made — agreements with ourselves, with other people, with God, with life. But the most important agreements are those we make with ourselves. I told Janet why I didn`t connect to Ruiz`s revolutionary hardware. I explained that I understood the value of agreements, but that it is their practical application that I have to face. The first and fourth collusion, «being impeccable with your word» and «always doing your best», are not so hard, but the second and third, «take nothing personally» and «don`t make assumptions», have proved very difficult to practice. If I have to name four betrayals that I usually do to myself, will they be? You may practice yoga three or four times a week, or even every day. When you`re in class with this teacher you can`t get enough of, you feel like you`re on top of the world. You can feel your true self shining every day more and more, and your body and mind feel healthier than ever! This feeling is not like the others, but sometimes, when we move from the carpet to the real world, that feeling can quickly fade.

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.
