First of all, I was discouraged by the more religious attitude at the beginning of the book. I decided to stick to it and keep listening. I was rewarded when the book laid out some useful principles:1. Be blameless with your words.2. Don`t take anything personally.3. Don`t make assumptions.4. Always do your best. Easy, not always easy to practice, but swing with me! Our personal power is based on the agreements we make and we often make those deals to please others instead of being true to ourselves. In doing so, we surrender our personal strength. The four chords aim to regain our personal power by being authentic and clinging to our true self. The four chords are: 1) Be blameless in your word, 2) Don`t take anything personally, 3) don`t make assumptions, and 4) keep doing your best. These agreements are simple, but far from simple. Ruiz encourages readers to practice these chords every day and forgive us if we are not perfect.
The effort is the most important. This book is a quick read (or listen) and should be read repeatedly if you really want to hold your chords with yourself. Every word and thought written in this book is a blessing. My best advice is to take the opportunity to read it and trust it, when this book has come to you is for a specific reason. This is because your inner voice or God (whatever you believe) wants to live a life full of love, happiness, and understanding for all of humanity. Thank you Don Miguelito and Peter 🙂 I`ve had this book for years, but I didn`t go past the first few pages. I tried as an audiobook with much more success. I really enjoy this book and the lessons it contains. It`s a good read, I recommend it. Although the content and agreements in the twenty-first century are useful and relevant, I had the impression that there were many very religious and excessively spiritual elements in the stories. I love this audiobook, a short listening that changes my life, I could go as far as it saved my life.
Thank you from the heart. A wonderful book I love prayers at the end, they are for people of all religions or not, and I feel connected to the universe when I hear this chapter every day. I thank Mr Ruiz Peter in a soft voice. Don has wonderful wisdom. It is the answer to all my suffering. It`s as if he is talking to me and giving me a guide on my particular situation with those around me. I felt resentment, anger at the rude and ruthless behavior of my family and friends. It may not be easy, but I will definitely change the game and become immune to his behavior using these techniques. I listen to it again and again until my heart reaches the bliss told at the end of the book.
Listening also makes a difference than reading. For me, it happens to my filtering and appraising mind and affects my subliminal consciousness and my heart changes.
