The Fifth Agreement
5/5.C`s amazing. I must say that Don Miguel Ruiz is currently my favorite writer in Spirituality/Philosophy/Self-Development. The four chords changed my life, and it`s a great sequel. These teachings and Toltec`s philosophy absolutely adore them. Great narrator, listen carefully. Of course, you propose to start with the 4 chords before reading this. Each artist distorts the truth, but there is no need to judge what someone is saying or to call that person a liar. We all tell lies one way or another, and it`s not because we want to lie. It is because of what we believe; It is because of the symbols we have learned and the way we use all these symbols.
Once you are aware of it, the fifth chord makes a lot of sense, and it can make a very big difference in your life. I couldn`t survive the first two chapters of this book. It`s so repetitive that it drove me crazy. It seems that there is an idea in the book and this is repeated endlessly in different ways ad nauseum. The idea is not even original. Very disappointing, because I liked “the four chords” of the same author. It`s really boring. This practical guide completes Ruiz`s first book on the 4 chords.
It is back to the basics of common sense of the Toltec way and can be applied by anyone and anyone. Really inspiring and simple, and made all the more enjoyable when heard by the chocolate sounds of Peter Coyote`s voice. It`s highly recommended. The book itself is awesome and I would definitely recommend it if you haven`t read the four chords. And I recommend it more than 4 chords, but seriously 80% of the book is one more of the same. So, in any case, one of them buys, but not both. A large part of the book is a summary of the 4 chords that is nice to check, but is not fresh content. The 5th agreement, which I cannot spoil for 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 one that should also apply to the teachings of this book and, in fact, to all the teachings. I enjoyed the book and I like the wisdom of it, but I found some of the assertions unreasonable and I found the application of the 5th Convention. As rules of life, the five agreements are valuable and worth a search for. I`m not sure on the part of enlargement on the 5th agreement which was really useful or valuable once you know what it is. It would probably have been helpful to take a deep leap into cognitive prejudice, because it is primarily that.
