« I found the ideas in this book a repetition of the ideas in `The Fourth Agreement.` I really liked the fourth chord, but I was looking for something new in this book and so I was disappointed. « 5/5. Amazing. I must say that Don Miguel Ruiz is my favorite writer in spirituality/philosophy/self-development. The four chords changed my life and it`s a great sequel. I love these teachings and the Totec philosophy. Great narrator, great listening. Of course, offer to start with the 4 chords before reading it. « As one of my favorite books of all time, `The Four Agreements` has said it all. There were good concepts that were discussed in this book, but they would have been better included in a separate book to the mastery of love, unlike this poorly executed attempt to write them down as the 5th chord. « It is very good to read books from people who have the patience and discipline to write/share on the issues of heart, soul and spirit of life in which you are simpatico.
Although this is a sequel to The 4 Agreements, it is NOT necessary to read the previous title. Since all areas of these pages/chapters are covered. The advantages of the audiobook format are perfect for this kind of books/authors 1. You can bookmark certain sections that are important and reproduce them during times when you might need to hear them. 2. Miguel`s universal prayers are always good to have them from the barrel in difficult times. Peter Coyote`s voice is cordial. It is very important that the voice reflects the author and his point of view/perspective, especially in this genre. One of my writers fave-st! « The fifth agreement has a positive message. A lot of redundancies and repetitions, but maybe we need that to hear and internalize the message? He definitely put the four chords for me on a deeper level. In the Four Accords, Don Miguel Ruiz revealed how the process of our upbringing or « domestication » can make us forget the wisdom with which we were born.
During our lives, we make many agreements that go against ourselves and cause unnecessary suffering. The four agreements help us break these self-limiting agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us personal freedom, happiness and love. Much of the book is a summary of the 4 chords, which is nice to recite, but is not fresh content. The 5th. The agreement that I will not spoil to those who do not know it is a principle that I already apply in my life, and it is a good one, but it is a principle that should also apply to the teachings of this book and, indeed, to all the teachings. I enjoyed the book and I love its wisdom, but I found some claims unreasonable and found myself implementing the 5th Agreement. As rules by which one must live, the five agreements are valuable and desirable. I am not sure that the part of enlargement on the 5th agreement was really useful or valuable as soon as you know what it is. It would probably have been helpful to immerse yourself deeply in cognitive biases, as it relates primarily to them. Biblical references/analogies and spiritual stories were a bit of a deterrent to me, but didn`t get the better of the Book`s message. The book itself is great and I would definitely recommend it if you haven`t read all four chords. And I would recommend it more than 4 chords, but seriously 80% of the book is one more of the same.
Buy one of them, but not both. The story of you is all you know about yourself. And when I say that, I speak to you, to know what you believe, what you are, not to you, to the man, what you really are. As you can see, I make a difference between you and you, because one of you is real and one of you is not real. You, the physical man, are real; You are the truth. You, knowledge, are not real; They are virtual. You only exist because of the agreements you have made with yourself and with the other people around you. You know, you come from the words you hear in your head, from all the opinions of the people you love, the people you don`t like, the people you know, and especially the people you`ll never know.
