Many of our cultural beliefs, family beliefs and even personal conversations are motivated by fear. A wise man named Don Miguel Ruiz has developed a series of four chords that help us break beliefs based on fear, creating incredible reserves of energy, joy and enthusiasm for each other and for life. Love is always friendly. Fear is always unpleasant. With fear, we are full of obligations, expectations, without respect, to avoid responsibility and compassion. How can we be comfortable when we suffer from this fear? We feel victimized by everything; we feel angry or sad or jealous or betrayed. Anger is nothing but fear with a mask. Sadness is fear with a mask. Jealousy is fear with a mask.
With all the emotions that come from fear and create suffering, we can only pretend to be friendly. We are not friendly because we do not feel well, we are not happy. Omega: What is the best thing to do when you notice that fear is coming, especially when it comes to making decisions? The final and fourth chord is simple: always do your best. The result of this is that the obligation to do your best in every situation is the most powerful way to eliminate remorse in your life, another emotion based on anxiety, energy-intensive. It is also important to eliminate another source of drama: to compare yourself to others. The key to realizing the benefits of this agreement is the acceptance of the reality that your best will change day by day. Your best if you are sick, for example, is probably very different from your best if you are in fine mettle. So use your word correctly.
Use the word to share your love. Use white magic, starting with yourself. Tell yourself how wonderful you are, how great you are. Tell yourself how much you love each other. Use the word to break all those little juvenile arrangements that make you suffer. I`m sure we can all get in touch with that. Sometimes we accept and add meanings at the request of a friend. We assume we know what they are thinking. We think that is what we are doing.
And most of the time, we`re wrong. They are all based on assumptions. Assumptions that made us suffer. The way you see a movie corresponds to the chords you made with life. Your point of view is personal to you. That`s nobody`s truth except yours. So if you`re kidding me, I know you`re dealing with yourself. I`m the excuse to drive you crazy. And you`re going crazy because you`re scared, because you`re mixed with fear. In the four agreements, Miguel Ruiz asserts that the way people are “domesticated” – conditionally to live in society – fundamentally harms the psyche.
