Each of us is born with a certain personal strength, which we rebuild every day after our tranquillity. Unfortunately, we first spend all our personal strength to create all these agreements and then to respect those agreements. Our personal power is dissipated by all the agreements we have created, and the result is that we feel powerless. We have just enough power to survive every day, because most of them are used to maintain the chords that hold us back in the dream of the planet. How can we change the whole dream of our lives if we don`t have the power to change even the slightest agreement? This four-colour illustrated edition of The Four Agreements with paintings by Nicholas Wilton celebrates the 15th anniversary of a classic of personal growth. I was so excited when I found out that an illustrated version of “The Four Agreements” for the iPad is out! I have the pocket kit and I read them often. As I take my iPad wherever I go, I always have the four chords. This book has changed my life, all in a way that is useful to me and to the people around me (I think). It clearly gives me the tools to understand how our lives evolve in a way that does not benefit our happiness and freedom. The same tools, as they are understood and integrated into our system of thought and belief, work together to achieve miraculous changes in our lives (this is my experience). The tools are not only deep and powerful individually, but when used together, they create wonders, almost automatically. They require a conscious practice every day.
Are they worth it? It`s for you to decide, but for me, they make life a great, happy, exciting experience. This would certainly make my copy much more personal! My paperbacks have colorings, circles and excentrifications, which allows me to simply scan the parts I consider most important when rereading. In the Four Accords, Don Miguel reveals the source of self-sustaining agreements that deprive us of joy and cause unnecessary suffering. If we are prepared to amend these agreements, there are four falsely simple but powerful agreements that we can adopt as guiding principles. Based on the ancient wisdom of Toltec, the four chords offer a powerful code of conduct that can quickly transform our lives into a new experience of freedom, true happiness and love. I read all four agreements years ago. I read this beautifully illustrated jewel of wisdom. It`s powerful, easy, and this reading, I`m going to LIVE IT! Every time you break a deal, all the power you used to create it comes back to you. If you accept these four new agreements, they will create enough personal power for you to change the whole system of your old agreements. When we see that it is our chords that dominate our lives, and that we do not love the dream of our lives, we must change the chords.
When we are finally ready to change our agreements, there will be four very powerful agreements that will help us break the agreements that come from fear and exhaust our energy.
