Using the four chords to master your life`s dreams is a magical journey. These are simple, but powerful. What Don Miguel Ruiz calls your authentic self to find wisdom is well-being and mastery. Love your presentation of this. Ruiz`s principles are rooted in Toltec`s traditional wisdom and, in their simplicity, these powerful arrangements are difficult and revolve around the idea that the way we think and act is based on agreements we make with ourselves. These agreements are supposed to be our personal belief systems that developed in childhood. Ruiz presents how to let go of these beliefs and links as a path to a happy, healthy and sensible life. In The Four Agreements Companion Book, Ruiz writes: “The four chords are a transforming tool that drives you to stop judging, especially yourself, and to practice a different way of life. They lead you to end guilt, shame and self-referral; they help you break the chords that limit the expression of your creativity and replace them with new chords that facilitate the expression of your love. As fit perfectly into our mission at Yoga Home, which is to provide a safe space for self-exploration, a non-judgmental space in which they are encouraged to explore the body, mind and soul. For many, although all four of these agreements apply, there is often one that swings deep inside. I was retired almost ten years ago when my retirement manager suggested that I read this book.
I was caught in a place of guilt, shame and defeat. I was overwhelmed by the juggling of family demands and work obligations. Self-protection was the last thing on my “to do” list when she should have climbed to the top. In fact, I was only retired because he fulfilled a work obligation! While I saw the need for all the chords in my life, “Always do their best”, I noticed. Ruiz said: “In all circumstances, do your best, no more and no less… If you go beyond your body, exhaust your body and go against yourself, and it will take you longer to reach your goal. Finally, I was able to give birth to the desire to constantly go “above and above” and give me the space to do my best, no matter what it was on a given day.
