The Four Agreements Heaven On Earth

The Four Agreements Heaven On Earth

The word is not just a written sound or symbol. The word is a strength; it is the power that you must express and communicate, think and create events in your life. The word is the most powerful instrument you have as a man; It is the tool of magic. But like a two-sided sword, your word can create the most beautiful dream, or your word can destroy everything around you. An edge is the abuse of the word that creates a living hell. The other edge is the incomprehability of speech, which will only create beauty, love and heaven on earth. Depending on how it is used, the word can free you, or it can enslave you even more than you know. “The next three agreements really came from the first agreement. The second agreement is nothing to take personally. “There is only one agreement left, but it is one that allows the other three to become entrenched habits.

The fourth agreement is about the action of the first three: always do your best. The Four Accords aim to create happiness and the “dream of heaven” here on earth. What Ruiz believes is that most people live in the state of hell on the basis of personal arrangements; but by breaking many of these agreements and creating four new chords, we can leave hell and enter our personal heavens – we can have heaven here on earth. The four agreements that he thinks will lead to this personal power are (as quoted in the book): his final agreement, always giving the best of themselves, seems at first imposing, but it is actually quite comforting. Instead of losing the mentality that you always have to make 110% effort, he explains that it is simply not sustainable. But it`s always a sustainable way to do what you`re able to do. And if you fail one day, don`t worry – just restart the next day; Breaking existing agreements and creating new ones is a long process – nothing that can be done overnight. The trick is to make this a lifetime goal that you`re still working on. “The first agreement is the most important and the most difficult to respect. It is so important that with this first agreement, you will be able to reach the level of existence that I call heaven on earth.
