These four agreements will give us the tools we need to create a new dream that is healthy and positive. This book is a classic! No wonder he was loved by many, and now I am one of his lovers. I like how simple, profound and concise the teachings are presented. Don Miguel Ruiz did his best to question every word. This is already the first and fourth agreement in action. Go to the conference. In this summary, we will discuss in detail the various new agreements and then discuss how to dismantle the old agreements. Today, the word of Mexicans is used casually in phrases such as: “Qué mitote se traen esos gueyes de la fiesta!” (What a thug these parties caused!) Or “Hubo mitote en el ayuntamiento ayer” (Yesterday, there was a scandal at the town hall meeting). As a language student, you probably won`t use that word often, but if you spend time with Mexicans, it`s helpful to understand it. And if you want to impress, let go of the conversation the next time there is a “vocal cacophony” in your head…
Only love has the ability to put you in this state of happiness. Being happy is like being in love. Being in love is like happiness. They float in the clouds. You make love where you go. It is quite possible to live this way all the time. It is possible because others have done it and they are no different from them. They live in happiness because they have changed their chords and dream of another dream. – Don Miguel Ruiz The problem is that we can never enter this image of perfection, because this image is not real. It`s an illusion, a mitote. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
This is their view, based on their own belief system, the agreements they have made with themselves. And everything has nothing to do with you. So we have nothing to take personally. Consciousness: Turning the Dream of Lucider The best dreams are often the ones we can control with our unlimited imagination. They`re called lucid dreams. To have a lucid dream, you need to realize that you are dreaming. In other words, be aware of how the mitote affects you. Because the mitote is incredibly complicated to be aware that you have to become a master tracker. You follow your emotional and unconscious reactions.
They follow the judge`s voice and the groaning of the victim. You follow the voices of the dream and how they influenced you. Did you really want to get married or was it someone else`s dream? Even if you wanted to get married, did you make an agreement that was genuine between you, or did you simply do what the government and the Church recommended? Is a funeral the way you would mourn the death of a loved one, or is it exactly what everyone does? Is jealousy a learned instinct or behavior? If you learn to follow, you will have the gift to see. If you can see, then you can start to change your reality. If we want a life of joy, we must break these harmful agreements that promote suffering and failure.
