Summary Of Agreements

Summary Of Agreements

Reminds me of a Buddhist idea. A Vietnamese Buddhist professor named Thich Nhat Hanh says we all have a memory consciousness, a place from which seeds form in our daily thoughts. These seeds can be healthy or harmful. So we need to feed the seeds healthy so that they stay in our minds longer. We must also bring back harmful seeds (such as anger, ignorance and greed) into our camp consciousness. If you want to learn more about these great Buddhist ideas, read our summary of Thich Nhat Hanh`s The Heart of the Buddha`s Teachings. That`s all for this book! Don Miguel`s words are so simple, but so powerful. I hope you have learned a lot about the origin of your old beliefs and rules and how to adopt new agreements to live better in the future. Excellent summary. I, too, had the impression that the book echoes you a little on the “how” recipe.

The way I rationalized it reflected on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry`s quote: “If you want to build a boat, don`t gather men and women to collect wood, share work and give orders. Instead, you will teach them to aspire to the distant and endless sea.” If the goal was to create the most powerful dense work to move people, focus on why to the exclusion of how was the right approach. Anyway, well summarized! The four agreements show us that there is another way. By freeing ourselves from the structures and expectations of society, we can enter into new agreements for ourselves. Best news: On this page, you can read some of the best lessons I`ve learned from The Four Agreements in a quick fun summary! Let`s start with the first lesson… We learn how to act and what we should believe and accept as normal. Ruiz says we should ask ourselves why we accept them and live because we have not chosen these rules and agreements. In The Four Agreements, a New York Times bestseller for more than seven years, Don Miguel Ruiz revealed how the process of our formation or “domestication” could make us forget the wisdom with which we were born. Throughout our lives, we have made many agreements that go against ourselves and cause unnecessary suffering. As with similar books, the four chords are better appreciated first-hand than summarized. This is especially true for small ones (like these), which are more synthesis than synthesis.

That`s how everyone puts on a mask and starts living in a dream. We believe in all these things and we live by all these rules that we have never stopped thinking about. Don Miguel calls all these beliefs and rules “agreements,” because we for these beliefs and rules were part of our AGREE dream. (But of course, the kids always agree, so it`s not your fault.) Thank you, Danyal. It is becoming more and more difficult to summarize books like The Four Agreements.
