We have to break many old arrangements and change a lot of domesticated beliefs to really keep a space for someone who hurts us or who is angry without judging to withdraw, defend, accuse, intellectualize, share their dream. As for intransition, this word certainly has the connotation of perfectionism, and if we take it that way, we would indeed go crazy. (Besides, the impeccability and other agreements you make with yourself, not the requirements that Ruiz imposes on you.) On the other hand, if you engage perfectly with your word as your goal, if you commit to be as honest and kind as possible with your words, without waiting for perfection of yourself or to fight if you are too short, this agreement could improve your well-being with yourself. Half of everything: half smile, half attentive, half creating, half-work… I really appreciated the way you put forward the most important ideas of this book. Good note for Miguel Ruiz`s book. I also pulled some nuggets from it on getnugget .co. Nuggets as notes on the edge of a page, but with images. You can find them interesting! If I have to name four betrayals that I usually do to myself, will they be? This book, first published in 1997, has been sold more than 8.2 million times in the United States  and has been translated into 46 languages worldwide.  The book gained popularity after being supported by Oprah Winfrey in 2001 on the Oprah Winfrey Show and in 2013 in the television series Super Soul Sunday.  This book has also been on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a decade.  #4: Reconciling with yourself that you always do your best is the path to absolute individual freedom.
The judge, as the author describes it, will faint to judge us when we know that any choice, action, decision, emotion, resistance, hesitation or „mistake“ is the best choice and, in fact, only that we can make at any given time. The deepest offer here is that in an action-reaction universe, in fact, we have no control over any outcome in our lives — such control is an illusion (and a control to which we cling desperately to avoid surrendering to the unknowable). Not taking things personally does not mean isolation and lack of love. Finally, Miguel Ruiz wrote a book called The Mastery of Love: A Practical Guide to the Art of Relationship: A Toltec Wisdom Book. Read it and see if you come to the same conclusion. They said, „I met someone who had read this book… I`m not going to do that. Apparently, they didn`t get any of that, and that`s why they ran you over. So you haven`t read the book, and you`re able to express such strong opinions about the book? The study of Toltec`s history makes no sense when it comes to understanding this book. It`s like looking back at the old Hindu and deciding that there is nothing to gain from yoga or meditation. People have always figured out how to manipulate their minds, and even though they may have seen it in terms of magic or religion, the methods they have learned are not negligible for that reason alone.
We can now (better) understand what really happens when a person uses meditation, visualization, etc. to change their thought processes. This book is nothing but a guide to self-gap and love of everything and everyone. Pushed to its limits, it frees you to be able to love those you could normally avoid because of the negative emotions they create in you. The ability to see the chain of events that range from something a person says to the emotional reaction in you is the basis of many cognitive behavioral therapies. You can`t control the actions of others to see the emotional reaction you like the most, you can only (learn) control the mechanism behind your emotional reaction. „Don Miguel Ruiz`s book is a roadmap for education and freedom.“ – Deepak Chopra, author, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success“An inspiring book with many extraordinary lessons.
