In Part 2 of this two-part video, we learn something about the book of the law that governs our mind and the inner judge that makes us suffer because we never compare ourselves to our “image of perfection.” All our normal tendencies are lost in the domestication process, 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 “me.” With practice, the four agreements help us restore our “authentic self” and this is the greatest gift we can make ourselves. I think it is certain that we should propose that we approve; Convictions should be tested constantly, otherwise they cannot be trusted. However, I will not agree with the idea that you have to follow all roads that are not regulated and do everything they “feel” is happy. Our feelings are limited by the sum of our thoughts, our thoughts are limited by the sum of our knowledge. Thank you for sharing your point of view, Coleen. I always recommend all books written by members of the Ruiz family. Miguel Ruiz`s latest book (The Toltec Art of Life and Death) is a little different. He continues to teach some of the same lessons presented in his previous books, but in the context of a somewhat fictionalized report on his experience, when he was about to die after his heart attack. He looks back at events as he grew up, which gives more insight into his thinking.

I`m also looking forward to Miguel Ruiz Jr`s next book, The Mastery of Self: A Toltec Guide to Personal Freedom. What this means is that a lot of stress can be created assuming you know what others are thinking without checking with them. Understanding that other people might have different motivations to act, even drastic worldviews on your part, and really remembering to try to understand others and discuss these motivations before jumping to conclusions about their behavior, can help prevent interpersonal conflicts.
