Miguel mentioned John:1 several times. For example, on January 1, 2012, he posted on Facebook: „www.facebook.com/donMiguelRuiz/posts/10150478684012771)“ The Gospel of John in the Bible expresses very clearly the power of the Word: „In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word is God.“ No matter what language we speak, our intention manifests itself in the word. » #3. The antidote to making assumptions is to ask questions. Many of us have been programmed in childhood against such follies, and it can be difficult to change. Many of the assumptions we make about others are used against ourselves. One of the most important wisdom teachings of the Tolèque tradition is that we all dream – a unique vision and experience of the universe. It`s at the beginning of „The Four Chords“ and my experience is that a lot of people slip through that part and go to the chords. Agreeing with ourselves not to take things personally (#2) offers us the opportunity to look inward and find and change the old agreements and beliefs – mostly lies of our childhood adherence – that emotionally captivate us and push us to react. The author of the article describes precisely the „dream“ of people that distorts what people say or do. It is a powerful gift of Totec wisdom. The responses to your contribution, including mine, show us how we can all perceive the same thing – in this case a book – and have different opinions about it. Miguel Ruiz explains how we distort incoming perceptions in a single version of the world (I describe this in my own book, also „The Everything Toltec Wisdom Book.“). Thank you for your kind words on this subject).
We can use the fourth chord, Do Your Best, to encourage us to aspire positively. But this agreement also recognizes that „our best“ varies from moment to moment, depending on our circumstances and mental state. Recognition of this fact leads to the realization that everything we are doing right now is of our best, and this awareness can prevent us from flogging ourselves if we are not up to an unreasonable standard of perfection.

As far as irreprolity is concerned, this word certainly has the connotation of perfectionism, and if you take it that way, you would indeed be going crazy. (By the way, the repress and other agreements you make with yourself are not demands that Ruiz makes of you.) On the other hand, if you set yourself the goal of being blameless with your word, you strive to be as honest and kind as possible with your words, without waiting for perfection from yourself or fighting if you are too short, this agreement with yourself could improve your well-being. I have not read this book and I do not intend to read it. I saw these four chords on the wall in a yoga teacher`s house and laughed. . . .
