Based on the New York Times bestseller, The Fifth Agreement, the 48 cards on this deck offer a new perspective on the four chords and a powerful new chord to transform our lives into our own paradise. In the four agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz revealed how the process of our education, or “domestication,” could make us forget the wisdom with which we were born. Throughout our lives, we have made many agreements that go against ourselves and cause unnecessary suffering. The four agreements help us break these self-limitation agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us personal freedom, happiness and love. Now Miguel Ruiz joins his son Don Jose Ruiz to offer a new perspective on the four agreements and a powerful new agreement to transform our lives into our personal skies: the fifth agreement. The Fifth Accord takes us to a deeper level of awareness of the power of the self and brings us back to the authenticity with which we were born. In this captivating sequel to the book that has changed the lives of millions of people around the world, we are reminded of the greatest gift we can give ourselves: the freedom to be who we really are. The story of you is all you know about yourself. And when I say that, I talk to you, know what you believe, not to you, to man, what you really are. As you can see, I make the distinction between you and you, because one of you is real and one of you is not real. You, the physical man, are real; You`re the truth. You, knowledge, you are not real; They`re virtual. You exist only because of the agreements you have with yourself and with the others around you.
You, know, you come from the words you hear in your head, from all the opinions of the people you love, people you don`t like, people you know and, above all, people you never know. Who`s talking in your head? You think it`s you. But if you are the one who is talking, who is listening? You know, you`re the one who talks in your head and tells you what you are. You, man, listen, but you, man, existed long before you knew it. You existed long before you understood all these words, before you learned to speak, and like any child, before you learned to speak, you were completely authentic. You didn`t pretend to be what you weren`t. Without knowing it, you have completely trusted yourself; They loved each other on their own. Before you learned, you were totally free to be who you really are, because all those opinions and stories of other people weren`t already in your head. 13. The Three Languages: What kind of messenger are you? Once you`ve learned a language, you can use the word to judge yourself on everything you know. It is when you will be the good man, the wicked, the guilty, the mad, the powerful, the weak, the beautiful, the ugly.
You`re what you think you are. And then the first question is, “What do you think it is you?” For thousands of years, humans have tried to understand the universe, nature and especially human nature. It`s amazing to see people in action all over the world, in all the places and cultures that exist on this beautiful planet Earth. People have a lot of effort to understand, but we also make a lot of assumptions. We distort the truth and create the most amazing theories; we create whole philosophies and the most amazing religions; we create stories and superstitions about everything, including ourselves.
