Christian Review Of The Four Agreements

Ruiz calls it «personal importance.» The concept looks at the idea that we see ourselves as the center of the universe. Especially unconsciously. People think that everything that happens revolves around them, it`s about us. But nothing others do really revolves around us. This is true for personal insults. Ruiz recommends staying away from the need to be right or win the argument. Our convictions are «our convictions». Our beliefs are chords we have chosen to perceive reality — our lenses. This is not to say that our beliefs are correct in one way or another. Avoid an argument by not trying too hard to convince others that your perspective or view of reality is the right version. I have not read this book and I do not intend to read it. I saw these four conventions on the wall in a yoga teacher`s house and laughed.

These tenants are what Saniel Bonder, the founder of Waking Down In Mutality, would call hypermasculine ideas to improve ourselves. In fact, they could improve our lives for a while, but like all self-improvement projects, they imply that we need to be repaired and that we ultimately end up with more self-judgment. Although there is an important place for the action component in life (the masculine strength), it is necessary to reconcile it with the gentler maintenance and accept mother qualities of the deep woman. Truly loving ourselves for and with all our human weaknesses is the key to non-evaluation of ourselves and others and surprising unshakability. This can pave the way for a deeper understanding, which involves knowing ourselves as an unlimited divine presence. Here is an improvised list of my 4 chords: (1) Give yourself a break – again and again We have to break a lot of old arrangements and change a lot of domesticated beliefs to really keep a space for someone`s violation or anger on us without judging, withdrawing, defending, accusing, intellectualizing, you share their dream. 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. Finally, the last of Ruiz`s agreements should reassure the minds of those who spend their time worrying about being perfect. In the Christian faith, the Apostle Paul reminds his successors that it is far more important to do their best than to be constantly compared to their fellow men. The fourth agreement relieves the pressure to always be blameless and makes it acceptable for us, as human beings, to have our mistakes as long as we try to be the best thing we can do. I like what you say. If you wrote a book about your spontaneous agreements, I would read it. Finally, I see the immense value in the Four Agreements, but the empowerment of the agreements needs the Holy Spirit. Interestingly, Ruiz closes the book by talking about becoming a spiritual warrior. It all starts with consciousness — unfortunately, most people aren`t aware of their condition or situation. Consciousness is the first step. Ruiz encourages us to get used to these four agreements. Make it a goal and realize that it will take a lot of effort on our side.

He admits that there will be times when we do not live according to the four agreements. Learn and be honest with yourself through the process. Start again in these moments, do not accuse or judge. We need to know that failure is part of transformation, and if you experience agreements through practice and failure, it becomes easier. If you fall, you will reopen. «3: Don`t make assumptions.» I think that as Christians, we are destined to forgive sinners, because God will judge us all. When Jesus was nailed to the cross, he said, «Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.» He knew they had different convictions, he knew they didn`t know what they were doing, He knew that Roman rabbis and soldiers were wrong in their faith. .
