In my last review, I address the four chords written by the author Don Miguel Ruiz. I`m going to do things I liked about the book and some things I didn`t like. I will then mention for what kind of people this kind of book is perfect and finally I will give the book a definitive score (out of 10). Negative: The only Con I could think of is personal, but some of the tips towards the end of the book were things I already knew, like the power of forgiveness and the way of living life in a more fearless way. It`s just that, and it`s the only thing I could think of. Otherwise, it is as close to a perfect book as you can get. As always, your sharing is very much appreciated, Allan. For readers who have not explored Allan`s site and books, I highly recommend them. Half of everything: half smile, half attentive, half creating, half-work… I really appreciated the way you put forward the most important ideas of this book. Good note for Miguel Ruiz`s book. I also pulled some nuggets from it on getnugget .co. Nuggets as notes on the edge of a page, but with images.
You can find them interesting! 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. How do we know the correct interpretation of Ruiz`s reference to John 1:1-5? We could break one of its four agreements and make the assumption of its intent. Or if you`re really interested in the truth, you might ask him. Please read this book carefully. Wisdom is powerful, if you can hear it. I write this as Miguel Ruiz`s 10-year apprentice, before the publication of « The Four Accords », an elder of his lineage, a divider of this wisdom… and the author of « The Everything Toltec Wisdom Book. » Ruiz says that a wall of fog distorts our perception of who we are: « It`s like living in the middle of a fog that doesn`t let us see beyond our own nose. » This fog, he explains, is formed by unverified agreements we have made with ourselves and others — beliefs about who we are and who we should be, and masks we put on to hide our perceived imperfections. I read this and I fully understand the points he was trying to make.
It is a little more sustained when you read the voice of knowledge. We learn everything as we grow up, part of what we learn is not positive.
