Be immaculate with your word. It seems to be about honesty, integrity and authenticity. I have no doubt, Don Miguel is for honesty, integrity and authenticity. But that is not the purpose of this agreement. Going back to the history of cinema, it says that if you want to tell a story about your life, you tell a beautiful story rather than a bad story. Here`s an important passage from the Fifth Agreement: “You`re telling yourself a story, but is it the truth? If you use this word to create a story of judgment and self-judgment, you use the word against yourself, and you are not blameless. His son, Don Jose Ruiz, then published a sequel with his father, entitled The Fifth Agreement, adding another chord: Let me explain the five chords with this metaphor according to my own understanding. An essential feature of this metaphor, which is clear in the rest of these two books, is that each person is a screenwriter and director for his own film. Here are the five agreements. The four chords have been printed and pinned to my fridge for years. Words are relevant and wise and help me live with less stress and grief. It delves deeply into the difficulties that many of us experience in our daily lives. This is one of those “need to read”! I love the way small businesses lead you to something you might need.
I hope you enjoy my summary of the agreements. You may be buying it on your next trip to bookstores. For those who have it, it may be a little help to reopen it. Find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as possible to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With this agreement, you can completely change your life. Most of us have heard of the four Don Miguel Ruiz agreements, but there is now a fifth agreement. As I was leaving, I ventured for a business trip to a cool little store and saw the new book. It didn`t take me long to realize that I had to buy it and reread it. I`ve given over a dozen of these books – this is one of those books they want to share with others.
Each artist distorts the truth, but there is no need to judge what someone is saying or to call that person a liar. We all tell lies one way or another, and it`s not because we want to lie. It is because of what we believe; It is because of the symbols we have learned and the way we use all these symbols. Once you are aware of it, the fifth chord makes a lot of sense, and it can make a very big difference in your life. His best-known book, The Four Agreements, was published in 1997 and has sold about 10 million times in the United States and has been translated into 46 languages. The book advocates the personal freedom of convictions and agreements we have made with ourselves and with others, which create use and unhappiness in our lives.  It was broadcast on the television show Oprah.  The four agreements are: Don`t take anything personally. Other people`s movies are funhouse-mirror versions of reality (like yours). The character in another person`s film that bears your name usually bears little resemblance to the character in your movie with your name or the real one you. So with a lot of grains of salt, take whatever other people think or say about you. Don`t take it personally.
Easter is a time to reflect on the resurrection of Jesus. I write about it in “What if Jesus was really resurrected?” This time I would like to get closer to my supernatural commitment by thinking of Jesus as a great teacher of wisdom. I would like to be in possession of videos of historical Jesus to see the powerful presence that I expect him to have had the historical effect he had. You look at the screen, and what a big surprise! You recognize all the characters in the film — your mother, your father, your brothers and sisters, your lovers, your children, your friends.
