The story of you is all you know about yourself. And when I say that, I talk to you, know what you believe, not to you, to man, what you really are. As you can see, I make the distinction between you and you, because one of you is real and one of you is not real. You, the physical man, are real; You`re the truth. You, knowledge, you are not real; They`re virtual. You exist only because of the agreements you have with yourself and with the others around you. You, know, you come from the words you hear in your head, from all the opinions of the people you love, people you don`t like, people you know and, above all, people you never know. «Like one of my favorite books, «The Four Agreements» said it all. There were some good concepts that were discussed in this book, but they would have been better included in a separate book of the excellent «championship of love», unlike this poorly executed attempt to classify them as a 5th chord. «In the four agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz revealed how the process of our education, or «domestication,» can 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. The four agreements help us break these self-limitation agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us personal freedom, happiness and love. I couldn`t survive the first two chapters of this book. It`s so repetitive that it drove me crazy. It seems that there is an idea in the book and this is repeated endlessly in different ways ad nauseum. The idea is not even original. Very disappointing, because I liked «the four chords» of the same author. It`s really boring. Now Miguel Ruiz joins his son Don Jose Ruiz to offer a new perspective on the four agreements and a powerful new agreement to transform our lives into our personal skies: the fifth agreement. The Fifth Accord takes us to a deeper level of awareness of the power of the self and brings us back to the authenticity with which we were born. In this captivating sequel to the book that has changed the lives of millions of people around the world, we are reminded of the greatest gift we can give ourselves: the freedom to be who we really are.
