These chords will help you reconnect with your authentic and awake self. These agreements help us to accept ourselves where we are and to accept others where they are. I found that they also helped me wait for the question of how I think others and the results should be! If you get used to taking nothing personally, you no longer have to trust what others say or do. Ruiz proposes that we should not be responsible for the actions of others; On the contrary, we are only responsible for our own actions and choices. If we can strengthen our ability not to take things personally, we can no longer be hurt by the words or actions of others. For many years, I have been trying to live from the “Five Accords” that I have taken from these two remarkable and highly recommendable books: The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. I found that once I integrated and understood these chords, my emotional, spiritual and physical well-being progressed. Tell me what you mean. To truly master, to be blameless with your word, you are asked to increase your awareness not only for the words you say, but also for the emotions you express. This includes your attitude, your actions and the place where you express the power of your convictions.
You need to develop a mindfulness discipline to be blameless in these expressions on a daily basis. Avoid using words to speak against yourself or to scold others. Use the strength of your word towards truth and love, always. Since we all have different life experiences and we have these different films in our minds, it makes sense that we don`t know what we don`t know. This is not just for listening! It applies to listening to our own thoughts and opinions. Every time I had a moment of revelation, I think, Wow, I just learned something new about which I had a different opinion. Until then, I was perhaps quite sure of my old opinion! The first time I heard about Emei Qigong, I saw an ad for an entire page for a free five-day course. That`s right. People will come and tell you their personal story, their point of view, what they think is the truth.
But you won`t judge whether it`s the truth or if it`s not the truth. You have no judgment, but you have respect. We hear the way other people express themselves, knowing that everything they say is nothing but a story distorted by their faith. You know it because you feel it.
