It is very interesting to take a step back and analyze our own book of the law to get to know us better and free us from dusty agreements. I was marked. The recognition of the four agreements includes a challenge coin engraved by the four agreements and which was issued by the United States Navy to Ruiz. In “The Four Agreements,” the author proposes to follow four key principles to remove suffering from our human experience and turn it into happiness. “The next three agreements were really born from the first agreement. The second agreement is not to take anything in person. I dug into my memories to find out what the causes of this fear were. In my book of the law, what agreements could I make about these ideas, and how can I change my perception of reality to free myself from these fears? “There is only one agreement left, but it is the one that allows the other three to become entrenched habits.

It`s rather meticulous! In the next four articles, I`ll break down each chord and explain what it is, why it`s important, and how I`ve applied it to my life. I hope for you that you will begin to notice the impact of how you respect and break any agreement in your daily life.

It doesn`t do anything good at all and only distracts from what`s going on inside. It may seem so important for the world (and you) to consider yourself perfect, but it is impossible to maintain it. The goal is not perfection. The goal is never perfection. We are faulty people doing our best, and the latest agreement marks this point at home….
