This agreement includes the integration of the first three chords into everyday life and also the exhaustion of one`s own potential.  It is a question of doing one`s best individually, which is different from the different situations and circumstances that the individual may encounter. By making a pact with these four key agreements, an individual is able to significantly influence the level of happiness they feel in their life, regardless of external circumstances.  In part 1 of this 2-part video, we learn about the „domestication“ of man and how all the rules and values of our family and society are imposed on us by a system of punishment and reward.
As young children, our true nature is to love and be happy, to explore and enjoy life; we are absolutely authentic. But then we learn to be what others think we „should“ be, and because it`s not acceptable for us to be who we are, we start pretending to be what we aren`t. When we are teenagers, we have learned to judge ourselves, to punish ourselves and to reward ourselves according to agreements we have never chosen. The Four Accords help us break self-limiting agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us freedom, happiness and love. Don Miguel Ruiz`s famous Guide to Personal Freedom is an inspiring and motivating read. The four chords ground philosophical concepts in concrete and real situations and explore the benefits of being impeccably with your word, taking nothing personally, not making assumptions, and always doing your best. The clear and concise chapters allow us to really sit down with these principles. 100 words is as simple as it is difficult to summarize a good book.
There is so much left to be said. Nevertheless, it is clear to me that the 100-word limitation will bring more creativity and effort. Nishith is an auditor by profession.

Ruiz explains that while this agreement is the most important, it is the most difficult to respect.  For this agreement, Ruiz first analyzes the word „impeccable.“ The word impeccable comes from the Latin word peccatus, which means „sin,“ and the „im“ at the beginning of impeccable is the Latin prefix meaning „without.“ Ruiz describes a sin as anything that goes against oneself, and therefore it means being impeccable with language, taking responsibility for one`s actions, and remaining without judgment against oneself and others.  Essentially, this agreement emphasizes the importance of speaking eloquently and carefully choosing words before they are spoken aloud.

In part 2 of this 2-part video, we learn about the book of the law that governs our mind and the inner judge that makes us suffer because we can never measure ourselves against our „image of perfection.“ All our normal tendencies are lost in the process of domestication, and we begin to look for what we have lost. We seek freedom because we are no longer free; we seek happiness because we are no longer happy; we seek beauty because we no longer believe that we are beautiful. What we are looking for is our „self“. With practice, the Four Accords help us regain our „authentic self,“ and this is the greatest gift we can give ourselves. „The Four Accords“ has left a lasting mark on my life and I am sure this „easy to read“ book will do the same with you.
