The four chords are provided in an easily understandable way and apply to everyday life. The concept of living in a dream is also easy to assimilate. The only agony I had was with the last 11 minutes, where he gives a prayer “Christan” that sounds in total contradiction with the wisdom of Toltec given in the rest of the book. This end made me doubt the credibility of the authors. I recommend to listen until prayer, then stop and you will be satisfied with the wisdom of the Toltec tradition. You need a very strong will to adopt these four agreements — but if you can start living with these agreements, the transformation of your life will be incredible. You will see the drama of hell disappear before your eyes. Instead of living in a dream of hell, you will create a new dream, your personal dream from heaven. 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.
In this book, the author masterfully reveals the source of self-limitation of beliefs. In this paragraph, it is the beliefs that effectively deprive us of all this agitation ultimately creates unnecessary suffering. First, the four agreements are based on the ancient wisdom of Toltec, which offers a very imaginative code of conduct. It`s something that has the potential to change our whole life completely, which leads to a very fresh experience of freedom. Second, love and true happiness are also something that is part of people`s newly transformed lives. The word is not just a written sound or symbol. The word is a strength; it is the power that you must express and communicate, think and create events in your life. You can talk. What other animal on the planet can talk? The word is the most powerful instrument you have as a man; It is the tool of magic. But like a two-sided sword, your word can create the most beautiful dream, or your word can destroy everything around you. An edge is the abuse of the word that creates a living hell.
The other edge is the incomprehability of speech, which will only create beauty, love and heaven on earth. Depending on how it is used, the word can free you, or it can enslave you even more than you know. All the magic you have is based on your word. Your word is pure magic, and the abuse of your word is black magic. Don Miguel Ruiz has led his audience on the right path to freedom. That`s what he`s been doing for two decades. In addition, the book starts slow and budding listeners are advised not to be judged at first.
