The human spirit is like fertile soil on which seeds are constantly hung. Seeds are opinions, ideas and concepts. They plant a seed, a thought, and it grows. The Word is like a seed, and the human spirit is so fruitful! The only problem is that it is too often fertile for the seeds of fear. Every human spirit is fruitful, but only for the seed species for which it is prepared. It is important to see what kind of seed our mind is fertile for and prepare it to receive the seeds of love. As for intransition, this word certainly has the connotation of perfectionism, and if we take it that way, we would indeed go crazy. (Besides, the impeccability and other agreements you make with yourself, not the requirements that Ruiz imposes on you.) On the other hand, if you engage perfectly with your word as your goal, if you commit to be as honest and kind as possible with your words, without waiting for perfection of yourself or to fight if you are too short, this agreement could improve your well-being with yourself. If you`re having trouble understanding something, assume you know what it means. When things become clear, you can see that it means something completely different. PS: It doesn`t matter if this wisdom comes directly from a culture of 2000 years ago.
Make it your own and transform your life! When we share this truth, knowing that we are dreaming, and it is our reality and our only reality that generates this emotional reaction — which I believe is beyond reproach. No guilt, no expectation of change or fixing, just information from me to you about my experience. They said, “I met someone who had read this book… I`m not going to do that. Apparently, they didn`t get any of that, and that`s why they ran you over. So you haven`t read the book, and you`re able to express such strong opinions about the book? The study of Toltec`s history makes no sense when it comes to understanding this book. It`s like looking back at the old Hindu and deciding that there is nothing to gain from yoga or meditation. People have always figured out how to manipulate their minds, and even though they may have seen it in terms of magic or religion, the methods they have learned are not negligible for that reason alone. We can now (better) understand what really happens when a person uses meditation, visualization, etc. to change their thought processes. This book is nothing but a guide to self-gap and love of everything and everyone.
Pushed to its limits, it frees you to be able to love those you could normally avoid because of the negative emotions they create in you. The ability to see the chain of events that range from something a person says to the emotional reaction in you is the basis of many cognitive behavioral therapies. You can`t control the actions of others to see the emotional reaction you like the most, you can only (learn) control the mechanism behind your emotional reaction. One of the most important teachings of wisdom in the Toltec tradition is that we all dream — to dream of a unique vision and experience of the universe. It`s at the beginning of “The Four Accords,” and my experience is that a lot of people slip into that part and go to the chords. 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 time to time, depending on our circumstances and our state of mind.
