I interpreted “is” as living in the present and “was” the representation of past behaviors. Tension change probably intentionally. The best way to develop knowledge is to bypass other evaluations and read the material and develop your own knowledge. Because I also look at topics in relation to me My opinion is that we all get something different from any book, based on completely different emotional reactions, based on the observations of a group that reads all four chords at the same time. There were about 50 of them, and I recommended it to a brother and sister who had a childhood trauma. He read the first chapters in tears, but he understood the healing power in himself. The first one only me off, but I understood that he was drawing why we shouldn`t believe that way. Be immaculate with your word. Don`t take anything personal. Don`t make any assumptions. Always do your best. The light and the truth.
At the end of the day, I think it is important that his agreements have the consequences you want. “The Four Accords” not only gave me the four chords by which I made small positive changes in my life, but the book also helped me understand the process of “domestication” and how this “Domest” shaped my belief systems. His son, Don Jose Ruiz, then published a sequel with his father, entitled The Fifth Agreement, adding another agreement: If we entered into relationship agreements (regardless of the relationship) that the exchange for information purposes serves in the name of intimacy, not a complaint or a request to repair anything to protect me from the emotional reactions I create myself… That`s impressive. This is a vulnerable intimacy and can go anywhere (no attachment to the result). Where it`s going to go is more truth, especially if the person who hears this sharing can go into his emotional body and find out what`s going on in response to sharing and then share YOUR emotional truth right now. Miguel comfortably changes the writing from “was God,” which has clearly passed, to “is God” – clearly a manipulative attempt to convey the current permanent tension to justify his principle himself. Be immaculate with my own words, don`t take things personally, don`t speculate and always do my best, these four promises are hard to keep, but once I became aware of these four promises, things started to move in a positive direction. We would all live in our isolated, waterproof cocoons. No one cared about or loved anyone else.
And no one can be blameless with his word. To ask for something else would create perfectionist shipwrecks, of which I myself am a part. It takes time to slowly stop asking people that. 100 words is as simple as it is difficult to sum up a good book. There are so many things that are not mentioned.
